Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We first covered the student's statistics homework. I explained the concepts of central tendency (Mean, Mode, Median) and dispersion (Variance, Std. Dev) of a distribution. Then we practiced Mandarin Chinese, covering the topics of family members, age, countries, and languages. I also helped him practice his skit in class. He is positive towards the materials covered. For Mandarin Chinese, he needs more practice to be confident in speaking it. I mentioned the Ebbinghaus memory curve to him last time and hope this could assist his learning strategy in language."
"The first student and I worked on listening comprehension. We reviewed the listening quiz and worked on vocab words. I created new sets of vocab words with pinyin so he can practice at home on his own. The second student and I worked on restaurant words and listening comprehension as well."
"In today's session, the student got to practice his speaking. He summarized one of the stories that he learned in class and presented to me. He also prepared a very well written speech on why he thought it was important to learn languages. We then worked on conversations that you encounter in a mall."
