Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Introduced more regular -ER verbs and practiced conjugating them and translating sentences aloud. Practiced conversation using clothing vocabulary and began studying food/drink vocabulary."
"For psychology I suggested for the student to study 1-2 chapters per day (depending on when the exam is scheduled). To study she can make review flashcards off of the notes the teacher provides. She can also look at chapter quizzes and perhaps her teacher provided a final review packet? She should focus on key concepts and vocab and maybe a little on theorists. My plan for Spanish is to help her understand how to conjugate verbs. Each verb behaves differently and the only way to learn these patterns is just to drill them. I've asked her to review the 12 verbs she learned today. I will also need to work with her on the vocab from each chapter and to teach her the command forms of the verbs (which unfortunately can be quite tricky). There are a lot of other grammar concepts that we'll work on as we work through the final review packet her teacher gave her."
"This was my first meeting with the student. She is a very sweet, intelligent girl. We covered many different areas that included the following : por vs. para, conjugating regular and irregular verbs in the present tense, past tense and conditional tense, Spanish commands, preterite vs. imperfect, and direct vs. indirect objects. I gave her an assignment in a workbook that she had dealing with imperfect and preterite tense. We are going to review her work tomorrow at our next session. I told her I was also going to bring more exercises tomorrow for us to work on in these areas."
