Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student did really well in this session as we mainly prepared for his upcoming Spanish vocabulary quiz on Monday. Our review covered vocabulary and also some conjugations and sentence structuring. He really needed practice in structuring grammatically correct sentences with good spelling so we focused a lot on that."
"We went over past tense, progressive tense, and command verbs. We also studied which form of verb to use when in past tense. The student "gets" how to use the verb tenses, but there is difficulty with spelling and choosing the right verb. Instead of referring to the table, I ask that he try to say it out load according to verb endings."
"Today we covered prepositional phrases (with me, with you, for me, for us, etc.), gustar conjugations, go verbs, and other irregular verbs in the present tense. We also reviewed vocab for the current chapter."
"The student completed and explained about dozen separate online exercises (4-12 problems each) and did a listening exercise. She knows the material wonderfully, and I am aiming to reinforce her doubts to boost confidence, continually."
"We went over pronunciation, context conjugation, and proper use of the student's vocabulary for this week and the prior week's vocabulary as well. We worked on conjugation of reflexive verbs and then using them to make proper sentences. He seems to have grasp on how to look at the root Latin words of Spanish words and use them to his advantage when trying to find the meaning during translation to English. However, I suggested learning the vocabulary the other way; translated from English to Spanish as well to help him further his skills. I suggested he pick up some easy to read Spanish books from his local library. He said he showed some improvement in his test scores after our session last week which is wonderful to hear."
"We reviewed for a quiz the student has today. It involved vocabulary, translation of sentences and conjugation of verbs. As part of our study session, we worked on memorizing new vocabulary and found triggers to remember how the words are spelled, how they sound and used."
