Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We finished our lesson from the previous day. We reinforced comprehension with dialogue and exercises (fill in the blank)."
"Today was a great lesson. The student has an exam tomorrow so we went through some verbs and reviewed how to conjugate them in the present tense. We also went through some vocabulary and grammar and made sure she knew them all by heart and that she was ready for the exam. She seems very ready and confident. She told me that did very well on her exam that we prepared for two weeks ago . Her mom thanked me for helping her improve her grades and for making her feel more confident. I love hearing that I really help and make her confident!"
"Last night, the student and I covered a lot of material. We reviewed faire (which I had asked him to review over the week) and we also reviewed the present tense verb groups (er, ir, & re). Throughout this process, we needed to continue to review grammar terms that are used often in the learning journey and in the classroom (auxiliary, infinitive, past participle). He is making great progress in these areas! The bigger area that we started to cover was "maison d'etre". This is the group of verbs that use etre as the auxiliary instead of avoir. We covered 6 of these, and I asked him to do the rest on his own after the session. A big part of this was the review of the verb etre, which we had just started the week before. The student has improved so much in his ability to use it in context and in terms of conjugation. At the end of the session, the student and I discussed the action plan for the week. He also wrote it in his planner. This is fabulous progress for our third session!"
