Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This week, we worked on reviewing some of the basics for the student's final. She made review sheets on verb conjugation in the active and passive, as well as personal and demonstrative pronouns."
"This session we focused on translating sentences. We used real (but beginner level!) Latin sentences from the Domesday book, a Medieval Latin manuscript. We worked on identifying the basic parts of the sentence, conjugating verbs, and declining nouns, and particularly worked on the genitive case."
"The student and I had a great session. We reviewed chapters 1 and 2, and went through 3 and 4 completely. I shared with her a website that has all of the vocabulary she is working on, so she will be using those online flashcards for review. We then worked through concepts like direct object cases, gender, and singular and plural nouns and verbs. She is catching on very quickly. We used Skype for this session, which worked very well."
"Continued going over verb forms, including no the imperfect and pluperfect subjunctive; went over a few uses of the subjunctive - cum clauses and indirect questions - and completed practices sentences using these."
"We reviewed things like study habits, some helpful websites, how his teacher teaches to help gauge how best to help him. We then discussed some basic information about verbs and also started working on principal parts, present system info, single and plural imperatives, and present tense formation. Assigned a few problems from pages 6 and 7 in his book for review for Wednesday's class."
"We went through stories from unit 1, stage 3 of the Cambridge Latin course. Student A and I were able to get through one new story, and Student B and I were able to get through two new stories. They are both getting really good at accurately and quickly translating simple Latin sentences, and are able to answer syntax questions when I ask them. I am really pleased and amazed with the progress they have made with Latin."
