Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today I met with the student to go over the French material. I am preparing a lesson for our next session."
"We worked on unit 7 in French. We got halfway through and had lots of fun. We worked on colors. We are getting more deeply into making sentences, rather than just separate words. Afterwards, when we were watching Skylanders, he was so intent on watching how the French person was making his way through the game and understanding how he was doing it (he kept asking questions to make sure he was understanding the person's point properly) that he did not want to stop. With the second student, we broke down lots of the sentences he was saying to start to get at the meanings. Then we reread the transcript of #1 further along to understand the individual words and sentences. He has a remarkable memory. We re-watched the beginning of #1. He seems to be enjoying and benefiting from this way of looking at how the characters explain themselves in French. Afterwards, he and I did Unit 7."
"Our strategy for practicing French today was for me to bring a photo album from my trip in France. I told her about my trip in French and she asked me questions in French about it."
