Overall the experience tutoring others was positive. One ***** the *****, Jessica, was an exceptional reader, but *****d difficulty when trying to put her thoughts to paper to provide adequate ***** samples. Nathan had difficulty with both ***** and writing. The course taken introduced principles of learning that enabled me to tu*****r these students *****ly.

The information ********** must also be verified; the writer can ***** verification into the body by citing authors or the research of other *****s that influenced the writer's w*****k.
