Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went over reflexive verbs (which we had covered last Sunday) and possessive pronouns as a way of preparing for her midterm next week."
"During today's session, the student and I spent the first part of the session reviewing over his index cards and study material. We went through it fairly quickly and I felt that he had been studying more and he definitely showed that he has been improving his Spanish. After we finished reviewing, I gave him a worksheet of problems that I created for him to complete. The worksheet included 15 questions and he had to first choose what tense each verb was being used (either imperfect or preterite). Next he had to define each verb and translate the proper meaning of each of the 15 verbs. I felt that he showed great signs of improvement considering this was the second day that we had been going over the preterite tense. The next portion of the session we spent going over the preterite tense endings for regular -ar verbs and -er/-ir verbs. After much practice, by the end of our session he ended up writing the correct endings to all -ar, -er, and -ir verbs in both the preterite tense and the imperfect tense. I was actually quite pleased and extremely happy how our entire session went and progressed. I felt that he did absolutely great during the entire session and I was extremely cheerful how much he remembered. In my opinion, this was one of our best sessions yet and it felt great because I knew how happy he was that he was learning and remembering the material. It was a great step and we just have to keep it up."
"We reviewed test 1 and the basics for Spanish 1, before we went on to review the preterite tense that will be tested on test 2. I assigned him homework."
