Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We practiced pronouncing vocabulary words from Chapter 1 in her textbook. I also had the student work on additional flashcards in person to see how she utilizes her to time to search for words in the dictionary and write definitions/conjugations down. We focused on the student's confidence in rolling her "r's". She did not finish her flashcard assignment from the last session and will aim to finish them by next weekend."
"The student has weekly quizzes in his Spanish class, so in addition to reviewing his homework last night, I helped him review for his quiz. Right now they're reviewing basic verbs, adjectives, and phrases that have to do with activities that people do. The student didn't have any significant problems with the material, but his biggest challenge is taking the time to think through his answers and, if necessary, review them. He's so quick to breeze through things and doesn't like to slow down and check his work."
"This was the second section that I worked with the student. We mainly went over study materials that we will be using in our future sessions. I was also able to give him some study tools that will enhance his Spanish acquisition. He is having a test over irregular verbs the day after tomorrow. I helped him create a study strategy and we worked on verb drills."
"Student practiced stem changing verbs, conjugating, and responding to short answer questions. I also reviewed with him several test taking strategies in Spanish."
"We worked on her science packet, which took up most of the time. She did well after some explaining. We reviewed her reading packet, as well."
