Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we worked on an article and reviewed the subjunctive. We saw a lot of new vocabulary about economy."
"We started by introducing himself and explaining few basics diseases to a patient and the difference between tu and vous. We discussed the sounds en/on/un."
"The student and I first discussed the concepts that he felt were most pressing. These concepts were the differences between verb tenses, when to use them, and how the conjugations differ. We focused on 3 major areas: the conditional, the subjunctive, and the difference between past and impartial (past tenses in French). We briefly reviewed the conjugation rules for each, and then I provided a number of practice examples. I also explained the different instances you would use these tenses. We did some translation exercises with the verbs as well, just as his teacher does translation exercises. I suggested saying the verb conjugations out loud to learn them and memorizing example sentences that represent certain tenses (like just memorizing "Il faut que je sois en bonne forme pour le match.") I will email the student a synopsis of the concepts we went over and some practice items to complete before our next meeting. It was a great first meeting. I think we both have a good idea of where to proceed in our next session!"
