Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student learned the days of the week, the months of the year, the numbers from 1 to 100, and the interrogative words cuales y cuantos. She is also beginning to learn to read in Spanish, even without understanding the context of the reading. The idea is to help her to become familiar with the structure of the words in sentences and phrases. She has also begun to practice spelling her name and the new vocabulary."
"The student and I began the session with a short preterite verb review. We completed a practice activity with a variety of verb conjugations that we have covered thus far. We then completed our lesson on "la casa, cosas en la casa." We wrapped up the session with a reading comprehension using the "past perfect" tense. I assigned homework for her to complete a journal, look up a set of Spanish expressions, and complete a set of activities through the National Spanish Exam website for Spanish Level II."
"During this session, we covered listening comprehension by utilizing music as a platform of listening and attempting to point out what can be understood. The student did exceptionally well and was able to point out a good amount of understanding as the session continued."
"Today the student worked on homework. He completed a few pages from his workbook involving the imperfect vs. the preterit tenses. The student recently took a test and got an 89%."
"Today, the student and I worked on negative commands and affirmative commands. He is now starting to understand the concepts. However, I would like for him to practice speaking the language. We will continue to work on this. I left some quizzes that he can do online."
"Following the syllabus, students learned today the "Interrogative Words" in Spanish, and the conjugation of the irregular verb "ir" (yo voy, tu vas, el/ella va, nosotros vamos, ustedes/ellos van). The three students need to practice vocabulary everyday and read the "Grammar Sections" in the book. Students had a dictation today, and I explained the uses of "Que y Cuales". Keep up with the great job learning Spanish!"
