Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I started the session working with the student. I am re-incorporating reading comprehension and translation exercises into my work with the student, which I had previously abandoned. The student and I worked on a translation exercise he had for homework, and I assigned him homework: (1) keeping his Spanish notebook organized and (2) working on the website for 15 minutes everyday."
"We reviewed vocabulary that we have been learning for some time. Worked on communication skills and began introducing the differences between 'ser' and 'estar.' Also, began learning vocabulary related to the land, earth etc. etc. The student is doing a great job and is clearly becoming more fluent in the language. The student and I are working on her remembering the words and really just communicating more. I help her to tap into her previous knowledge or understanding of the language by initiating the first syllable of the word and then having her finish it. I left her with some homework to do in a Spanish book that is designed for beginning learners. She was asked to correct an essay she wrote the last time we had session and complete an exercise on 'ser' and 'estar'. We also reviewed homework that she completed the week before on new vocabulary words related to nature. She is doing great and has a wonderful attitude towards learning new material."
"We spent the hour talking about the differences between preterit and imperfect tenses and their conjugations."
