REWRITES by Catal SUMMARY & EIKEN is an online service for Japanese students learning English as a second language who want to improve their summary writing and test writing skills. Based on a “Write, then rewrite” model, our program provides our students with feedback from undergrads, graduates, and professionals from around the world who are trained in high-level academic writing.
In Japan, we experience a lack of teachers who are skilled enough to provide language feedback that goes beyond simple grammar and spelling corrections. We are seeking individuals who are interested in correcting and giving feedback online to our students’ written summaries of Fiction and Nonfiction books and EIKEN proficiency test prompts.
The student rewrites the summary or essay based on the teacher’s feedback, then begins a new chapter or prompt.
The student reads a new chapter of an assigned book in class and writes a summary of the events that took place OR answers a new EIKEN prompt, then submits it to the teacher.
The teacher evaluates the summary/essay by making corrections, writing comments, grading the work, and leaving a message.
