Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Yesterday was the first session with the student. He is very motivated to learn Chinese. We reviewed the lesson where he left from school. He was able to read sentences. We did many language practices and write sentences. HW: write 6 sentences using the grammatical structure "to compare.""
"We practiced the pronunciation of n, l, o, e, u, and yu, ten simple Chinese characters, seven new words, and the initials and finals in Lesson 2. The student was pleasant, smart and talented. The student was encouraged to practice writing the characters, initials and finals at home. The student was able to pronounce the difficult initials and finals well in this session, but may benefit from more practice on the four tones in the future sessions. The strategy used in this session was to help the student memorize the finals by establish connections between Mandarin and English."
"We went over his speech word by word. I corrected his pronunciation. He used his phone to record me going over the speech and he'll listen to it after the class to practice. We'll go over the speech again next time."
