Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Our sessions are going really well. The student is very prepared and always comes ready to work. Today we read the newspaper and talked about her weekend and the activities she did."
"In this tutoring session we expanded on the conjugation forms of "SER". It is a challenging topic because the student is starting to learn the correct uses for this verb and building on his knowledge of Spanish. Last week we focused on the third person masculine, and the feminine of this verb. In addition to this, this week we finished up the rest of conjugations for this verb. Also, we studied more vocabulary that relates to personal descriptions, nationalities, and the time. These are very useful when using the verb "SER", that is often mistaken with "Estar". We worked on several exercises reinforcing this, and we reviewed past vocabulary words learned last week. His homework is to study the new vocabulary we learned on this session and to write the date for every day in Spanish. I asked him to do this because we learned how to write and tell the date in Spanish a few weeks back, and he is still having trouble remembering. So, I thought it would be helpful to have him write the date for every day this week."
"We continued working on preterite vs. imperfect. We introduced direct object pronouns, comparative pronouns, and shopping vocab."
