Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, we discussed what was needed in order to improve the student's grade in Spanish. He showed me the progress report with the missing assignments. After, we worked on some tactics for better organizational skills. Finally, we began to work on assignments that were due. He seemed enthusiastic about getting his grades together. I am looking forward to the sessions that follow."
"Today the students and I played with (No Suggestions) and read different vocabulary cards in Spanish. I spoke to them 95% in Spanish and gathered that they understood almost everything. There is a great potential for their learning here, especially as they grow more comfortable in responding in Spanish."
"I taught the student phrases that can be used to request information, especially for asking directions. Then, we looked at some vocabulary for places to visit in a city. We'll continue with this theme next lesson."
"The student and I worked through a semester review during this session, discussing all former lessons from this semester, various tenses, and grammatical rules. We also set out a goal for the rest of this fall semester to cover subjunctive and demonstrative adjectives as well as a few other grammar rules before he takes a semester final exam. He would like to measure his progress from the semester, so he will work through this final review over the next few weeks and prepare for a final test that I will give to him before Christmas. I am looking forward to celebrating all of his progress with him with this big test and think he will do well, as he has performed very well this semester."
"The student and I focused on formulating, responding to, and translating questions, with a review of the basic question words. We also reviewed conjugation endings, and matched the subject between a question and an answer."
"The student and I discussed a composition project that was due the following day. It was a very extensive project that required research and writing skills. I helped her construct sentences for each topic, and this process taught her a lot of new vocabulary and grammatical concepts. She completed the composition, and then she had to create a 3-5 minute PowerPoint presentation for class. She felt prepared for her presentation after we discussed it and completed the composition."
