Questions

Subject: Writing

TutorMe
Question:

I would give the student a topic, for example, the first day of school. Then ask them to write 3-4 sentences about the subject; whatever they want. Then I would ask follow-up questions like: "Could you evaluate how your paragraph relates to your thesis statement? Why did you organize your ideas in this way? How would you examine this topic from the opposing point of view?" (alternating word choice depending on age and skill) Lastly, I read and correct their diction and grammar.

Answer:

"The first day of school is always exciting for me, but I get nervous. I hope to have classes with my friends and nice teachers. I always try to look my best on the first day."

Subject: English as a Second Language

TutorMe
Question:

Typically in an ESL setting, regardless of the age and skill level of the student, I try to use conversational questions initially to gauge their listening comprehension and verbal skill level. I also use this as a learning opportunity for correction. Especially unique aspects of their culture or country so we can share and build rapport. For example: Would you rather learn from a young teacher or an older teacher? Which is more common in your country?

Ymani W.
Answer:

"I would rather learn from an old teacher, as most teachers are older in my country."
