Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During Wednesday's session, the student and I used an online tool to review her animals and colors. She is improving in her retention of vocabulary. Next week, we will incorporate more writing and will begin to tell time in Spanish."
"Today was our first meeting. The student and I reviewed 3 homework assignments on direct object pronouns, indirect object pronouns, and stem changing preterite verbs. His mom let me know that he struggles the most with listening exams, so on nights where he has less homework, we are going to incorporate listening practice into our sessions."
"We spent our entire session working on comparisons, which the student will need to know for her upcoming quiz. She did very well with the exercises that her teacher left for her, but she had much more trouble writing comparison sentences of her own. I urged her to continue writing them, making them as simple as possible, so she can focus on the sentence structure. I also asked her how she did on the big exam she was studying for at the beginning of the month, and she said she got a B."
"During this session, I reviewed the student's homework with her. Overall she did well; I helped her with her vocabulary use and conjugation (commands). We also reviewed definite articles with expressions of time and the exercises of the beginning Spanish grammar book. For homework, I asked her to write an account of her longest vacation, including the specific dates and times any important event occurred."
"The student completed his online assignments. He has improved his grades notably since he switched to online classes at the school. He's completing extensive homework on his own and I am helping him with the most complex assignments."
"The student and I continued reading Pliny 6.16 from where we left off the previous night. He expressed that he was having trouble with the material, so I made sure that we spent a lot of time going over each sentence. He had a bit of trouble with some of the sentences with nested grammar (an indirect statement with ablatives of cause and means in them). After the session we noted that we would have to go over this material again in the next session."
