Correct English Chrome Add-on

A while back, one of our tutors, Murali Namburi, recommended a great resource called Grammarly for tutors to use when tutoring. This resource is a Chrome extension that highlights grammar and punctuation mistakes and suggests corrections. It works with all types of chat and emails and will help ensure we are using correct English when communicating with students. Please find the link to Grammarly directly below:

Writing Effective Overviews

One of the recent changes you will notice on Rubric 2.0 and Tutoring Template 2.0 takes place in the introduction stage of session. After identifying where the student is stuck, an overview should be provided to the student to communicate a plan of action and set expectations for their participation:

Below are 3 example situations– please take a moment to respond with possible overviews via the discussion box below:

Situation 1:
A student is asked to find the volume of a cylinder, but is unsure of which formula to use.

Situation 2:
A student is graphing an inequality, but is having trouble deciding where to shade their graph in order to complete their solution.

Situation 3:
A student is asked to use the law of sines to solve a word problem. They have made some progress, but their uploaded work shows a computational error which is causing confusion.
