Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed the material I introduced her to during our first meeting. That is, we reviewed -ar and -er and -ir endings for the present indicative in Spanish. We also reviewed pronouns. Then I introduced her to six new verbs. Apart from those verbs, I introduced her to four important irregular verbs, which mean "to have" "to be" "to go" and "to make/do." She accurately conjugated and memorized the verbs "to have" and "to go." Next week, she will have memorized the six verbs and all the irregular verbs I introduced her to. After, we did drilling exercises. She is a quick learner."
"The student did really well in this lesson, as we mainly practiced for his Spanish skit. It required several revisions of his phrases, and we rehearsed it several times. He also had me practice it with him to ensure his pronunciation was perfect. Additionally, we practiced some exercises in activities that involved the uses of estar, ser, and quedar in sentences."
"We covered the positive and negative "tu" command form. The student has shown himself to understand the material and seems confident."
"The student is currently working on indirect object pronouns. I walked him through the lesson to see what he was familiar with. He was able to identify some nouns, but we had to take a step back in order to review how to identify verbs and I also had him take notes on how to conjugate for ar/er/ir verbs. We then moved forward with identifying the IOP and how to substitute for the correct pronoun. I assigned page 57, section 4 to him for additional practice, and asked him to reach out to me if he had any questions about the practice review. He will also need to take notes in this class for reference while completing assignments."
"Today, we went over the same passage as the previous session. The student told me that he would be going over this passage in class before the next tutoring session, so he wanted to know it cold. He understood the If-Then clauses better than the first time we went over them."
"Tonight the student and I translated a Latin passage. He did an excellent job identifying and translating passive verbs and prepositions. We will be meeting again to finish the passage tomorrow."
