Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over the preterite of 'poder' and 'traer,' verbs with reflexive pronouns, and possessive pronouns. No homework left."
"During today's session, the student and I first reviewed the previous study/index cards with previously listed verbs and vocabulary that I created for him weeks ago. As soon as we finished reviewing the material, I gave him a new set of index cards with more verbs and vocabulary for him to study. We went over each of the eight new verbs and their conjugated forms in the imperfect tense, as well as 15 additional vocabulary words in the new set of index cards. I stressed to the student how crucial it is for him to get more comfortable and more familiar with the first set of index cards before I give him any more new material. I feel that going over and studying the material is extremely important throughout the week. As we continued our session, the student then completed a worksheet that I created for him which covered the imperfect tense and indirect object pronouns. I was very pleased as we went on throughout the worksheet because it became easier for him to complete the problems. I was also very happy with his translation ability with some of the questions on the worksheet. The last exercise we completed during our session was an additional exercise from the textbook that covered aquel, aquella, aquellos and aquellas. The student did very well in this exercise. In general, I noticed that with practice and repetition it becomes a lot easier for him to understand Spanish grammar and vocabulary. My only concern for him is that he should practice, read, and review more of his material throughout the week. If he does this, the student will be extremely successful not only in his course but also in his total Spanish speaking ability."
