Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We had a great session. The student is feeling more comfortable speaking Chinese and translating his own sentences. He said he was enjoying the lessons more now since he has a better vocabulary. We translated some of the sentences he wanted to know. And we tried to talk in Chinese about his plans for the next couple of weeks."
"We went over the practice book, finished practicing the new words. I tested the student, so he should know all the four new words with pinyin and character. I also told him to review and practice before the quiz."
"I spent most of the time helping the student with his Chinese homework, which involved writing about family members. I also quizzed him on some related terms and grammar structures. Finally, I helped him with some math and social studies homework."
"With student 1, we Reviewed Vocab words, worked on homework, make sentences using "but" and "Too" in Chinese. Read dialogue, then Chinese calligraphy writing. With student 2, we reviewed Vocab words & I checked the sentences he made for homework. We read a dialogue & answered questions on his workbook. At the end, he practiced Chinese calligraphy writing."
"We went over the first one unit of the Chinese learning books the student has, and explained some usages/phrases in more detail. We decided to use his existing book and add more common vocabularies/sentences in daily life and local maps of his and family's upcoming trip to Taipei. He did very well to pick up what he had learned a while ago."
"We started this session with reading a paragraph about weather and temperatures in Germany and the formula for how to convert Celsius in Fahrenheit. We did various grammar exercises for the conjugations of the verbs 'to be' and 'to have' and added verbs of the senses to the new vocabulary. Furthermore, the student learned the German words for all the body parts. We concluded the session with repetition about time and ordering in a restaurant. I am very happy with her progressing German language skills."
