Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on a picture which featured the outside street scene of a Chinese tea shop in preparation of an oral test."
"The student and I finished up the final chapter with emphasis on translation, grammar and translation exercises. We also did some final review of the last 10 chapters in preparation of the AP test."
"We studied lesson 3 text. I introduced some new words and translated the sentences. After that, we did the lesson 3 homework together. The student did a great job."
"We reviewed the preterite formats that the student's teacher had given her in a handwritten set of study sheets. She correctly learned how to apply the rules and conjugate the verbs given in the study sheets. I gave her two websites she could use as resources for the verb sets and to check her work. I assigned her homework so she could write the charts out of how to apply the verbs and have them as a cheat sheet for non-test work that she may be assigned. She caught on very quickly and applied the tips I gave her."
"This session went very well. The student was happy that her grades went up a lot because of the tutoring. We did 5 pages of homework, covering body parts vocabulary and sentences and the past tense of the "ar" ending verbs. We went over some more material that she is going to have come up in class."
"Today the student and I went over tu commands in the positive and negative forms and then went over the possessive pronouns (mio, tuyo, suyo, etc.). I started off by giving him an overall review of the concepts. We ended our session by doing some of the practice exercises from the book together. Overall the session went very well. I thought that he had a good grasp on the fundamentals and as long as he studies a little more I think he will do well on his upcoming quiz. I sent him an email with additional study resources."
