Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We began with a review of interrogative words (Quien? etc.): I asked her several questions for which she had to write the answers. Then we went over prepositions, and I assigned her flash cards. I gave her some tips for remembering "por" and "para" which seemed to help her a great deal."
"The student and I went over new vocab/verbs. We practiced with conversation to help improve his speaking/listening ability. He is improving weekly in each skill but more focus will be placed towards his speaking/listening skills. His reading and writing skills are excellent, as well as his pronunciation."
"We reviewed the present tense of to be. I provided her with cards to practice numbers, compare and contrast and more vs. most. For homework she will make vocabulary cards to practice the words (using the same model as the cards I made for her)."
"Today we introduced verbs ending in -er and did verbal and written practice problems. We also introduced interrogative words. We did a conversational review of how to order food in a restaurant. In addition I assigned him work to take home in which he writes a page about himself including everything we learned today in order to integrate everything we have learned into a solid picture."
"Today, the student and I worked on a review guide for his Spanish test next week. The test will consist of por vs. para, imperfect vs. preterite, vocabulary, la vs. el vs. los vs. las, aquella vs. eso vs. este, and a couple of other grammatical concepts. We worked on the review guide which incorporated all of those parts. I left him with some material to familiarize himself with. The student and I also worked on math. We worked on graphing circles. He did great with this assignment and seems prepared for this section."
"I helped Student 1 study for an exam she has in her Spanish class. We studied the pronunciation of words commonly associated with sports and athletics. We then covered conjugation of regular verbs ending in -ar, -er and -ir. With Student 2, we continued to study numbers in Spanish. He was able to correctly write down the amount of objects in a given picture. So, for instance, if there was a picture with 13 bees, he wrote "thirteen bees" in Spanish. We then proceeded to study colors in Spanish. Both children are doing very well."
