Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I just had a nice Chinese lesson with the student. I totally can tell the student had improved a lot since he is now able to say a lot and use a lot of vocabularies correctly. Today, we talked about some new vocabularies and new short phrases. The student said they are very useful and important."
"Today, we continued to review the characters and studied the app. We continue to work on the pinyin as well as forming phrases and sentences with the new vocabulary, as well as learning about the cultural origins of the words."
"We reviewed the student's homework today - both sections included reading a passage about sports/health and then answering comprehension questions. She did really well! She is getting better and better at translating a sentence and coming up with a response. I am trying to encourage her and let her know that she is improving! I also indicated that I am happy to meet during the week if she needs additional help - she just needs to give me at least a day's notice so that I can try to rearrange my schedule."
"We went over the pronunciation of the vocabulary. I pointed out some pronunciation problems for the student to practice. I also made sentences for him to translate into English. He made sentences in Chinese too. We then went over a bunch of pictures that I took in China and we talked about the contents of the pictures."
"We worked on terms related to economic statistics and an exercise on how satisfied urban Chinese were with regards to their economic well being. The student is working on using her vocabulary in conversations and memorizing terms for class."
"At the beginning of the session, we went through a new picture book and we were able to learn many new words. We also went through 50 flashcards and extended the vocabulary to the objects in the pictures. I encouraged the students to use Chinese as much as possible during our session. I gave them each one sheet to practice writing characters as homework. We watched a Chinese video called ''Seven Little Lambs,'' and then I asked them questions to make sure they really comprehended the story."
