Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We spent most of our time putting together a short paragraph he had to read out loud for Spanish and then reviewed for his upcoming math test."
"We reviewed past assignments completed by the student for his Spanish class. I explained to him the use of direct and indirect objects in Spanish and the questions we ask to identify them (what? whom? for direct object and for whom? to whom? for indirect object), as well as the direct and indirect object pronouns (lo/la/los/las for DOP and le/les for IDP). He completed a series of exercises and explained to me the use of the DO and IO and their corresponding pronouns (Quiero una computadora --> La quiero; Tengo un libro --> Lo tengo; Compro unas flores --> Las compro; Tengo unos perros --> Los tengo; Le escribo una carta a ella --> Le envio unas tarjetas a ellos). We went over his homework from last week and reviewed an assignment on "comer" and "beber" (comic strips) for resubmission. We also went over some exercises with verbs like "gustar" and "encantar" (me gusta vs. me gustan; me encanta vs. me encantan)."
"We used the erase board today to review months, seasons and to learn the different holidays. To review numbers and holidays, I had the student write out what days holidays took place in Spanish. I recommended a couple books that provide good visuals and study resources for Spanish that he can use during the rest of the week and on holidays when we may not meet so he can review words and see as well as read them more often. He also has kept track of his worksheets, notes and notecards with phrases and vocabulary we have learned so far. A good idea to help him practice his Spanish is to start asking and teaching friends and family Spanish words and phrases."
