Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we continued our topic on food and restaurant. I added the Chinese new year celebration in this session as well. I showed the student two videos of food and restaurant and how people celebrate Chinese new year. She seemed interested in the video and there's vocabulary review and conversations that cover our previous learning targets. The student didn't really have any difficulties in these words and phrases since we have gone through this topic for a couple of times and she did learn to use the new words and understood the simple conversations in the video. I sent her homework as usual and had her practice a few words and phrases with me before we complete this session."
"Went over a new chapter and new grammar structures. I also suggested a new plan with additional practice due to AP testing coming up within the month."
"I first worked with Student 1 on measure words in Chinese and we practiced pronouns. I had him come up with a few sentences and we conversed briefly. I then helped Student 2 with his math and science homework."
"Agenda: 1. Review of homework 2. Measuring words (Liang ci) 3. Complements (Wan, Dao) 4. Conversation Homework: Practice using Measuring Words and Complements. Have questions ready for next week."
"Student practiced tongue twisters today. Then he summarized a story and presented it to me. We worked on his speaking skills, and towards the end we learned some phrases that you encounter when you go to see a doctor."
"I first started the Q & A based on the article I sent the student last time. I asked him to express his understanding and ideas through reading and to use his own words to tell what was going on. I helped him along with some questions, and the process became easier for him. He even was able to use more complicated form, words, and sentences to answer my questions. Then, we worked on his worksheet from his textbook. I helped him analyze some terms of words and how to use them. I also gave him more examples of how to "group" the meaning of words by analyzing their structure and ways of use."
