Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"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. Student 2 and I then reviewed his math and science homework."
"Today, the student and I finished the rest of Chapter 4 and went on to work on the review exercises/activities for the first four chapters. There were some character/vocabulary that she did not recognize from some of the earlier chapters, so it was nice to spend the session reviewing everything she's learned thus far. It is important to periodically review in order to build a solid foundation. She did a good job at practicing tones today and creating sentences with the vocab she's learned. For homework, she will finish the review worksheets and review the content from Chs 1-4."
"We covered how to count (from 1-10, then 10-20, the hundreds, the thousands, and tens of thousands); time and date (how to ask what's the date, what day is it, what's the time as well as the various way of answering the question: it's Monday-Sunday, It's Jan 29th, it's 10:30 pm/am etc.); morning, noon, evening and night; greetings (good morning, good night, how are you and the corresponding answers such as I am great or I am good and you?); thanks and apologies as well as various ways to respond; how to ask someone what they are doing tonight; how to ask someone what time they get to or get out of work."
