Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered his new vocabulary list and reviewed his old one. We also studied the new grammar lesson on certain irregular stem-changing verbs in the preterite, covering both their meanings and their conjugations, as well as reviewing his homework assignments and working on reading comprehension of that assigned material. Additionally, we reviewed prior lessons on other stem-changing verbs in the preterite both through isolated quizzing and having him translate given sentences from English to Spanish."
"The student had a test today on irregular preterite verbs and train vocabulary. We consolidated and corrected a study sheet on the vocabulary. I arranged some of the more easily confused irregulars into pairs so that she could learn them in contrast one to the other. We focused on the first person conjugations, since they all keep their respective change throughout other conjugations. The bulk of our time was spent on a packet, translating and conjugating."
"We continued to work on differentiating between preterite and imperfect. The student has a quiz on this on Thursday. He is definitely getting a handle on the material. He will need to review his irregular verbs and the various uses of preterite and imperfect, but overall I think he will do fine on his quiz."
