Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"On our first session for the academic school year, I first went over the student's goals for our sessions. We also went over his strengths and weaknesses in Spanish and committed to working on them. We then moved on to indirect and direct object pronouns. Using his book, we then went into creating our own examples of indirect and direct object pronouns. We then went on to reviewing accents, and I had him review accent rules and then correct his Spanish sentences. Lastly we brainstormed possible topics for his upcoming project."
"We covered many of the verb conjugations in sentences. Summer class is a more advanced Spanish and the concepts are rapidly progressing. She has the basic concepts memorized, and this will help her to succeed."
"This was an introductory session until the subject starts getting a bit more rigorous for the student. In class she has been reviewing what she learned in Spanish 1 last year. Next session we will most likely start with lessons on the preterite tense. She is ready to add to her Spanish knowledge and just seems to need help with retaining the material as it gets more difficult."
"During yesterday's session, the student and I primarily worked on the present subjunctive and present indicative verb forms. She was reminded that many irregular verb forms must be memorized if they are to be mastered. We also took time to discuss the proper pronunciation of words. For future sessions, we will work on the future tense and preposition. She continues to impress me with her depth of knowledge and understanding of Spanish, and with her dedication to her work."
"I am very happy with the student's progression as it does not take him long to understand a concept or a pronunciation. We reviewed his homework and read through it all in Spanish. With the textbook I brought, I showed him words used to label certain buildings and employees. He told me he scored a 20/22 on his Spanish quiz."
"Today the student resumed work on her comparison essay relating The Lion and the Jewel and Waiting for Godot. She created an outline for her essay, fleshed out her thesis, found textual evidence, and generally made a lot of progress. She needed help with understanding the plot and general significance of Waiting for Godot. We talked about it, and she understood it much better. She had a great attitude today as well."
