Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I discussed on one of the articles she needed to make up for class as well as on some extra credit work for her French class. She is working hard."
"The student and I prepared for her final by reviewing pronouns (direct object, indirect object, and demonstrative), verb tenses, and general grammatical rules. She is a lot more comfortable with these concepts now and should be well prepared for her exam."
"Today the student and I worked on verb conjugations in the present, passe compose, and the imparfait. She translated sentences that were negative in the present, passe compose, and a mix of the passe compose and imparfait. We did pronunciation in each of those sections which she did very well on. She did struggle a little bit with choosing which verb to use when it came to the sentences in the negative (e.g., "I don't sing" and "I can't sing") and with a couple words such as "here" and "tonight". She also needs to study and practice more when it comes to using auxiliary verbs with the passe compose. She was not struggling as much with this before, so what I am leaning to believe is that she needs to brush up on topics more often so that she does not forget what she has learned--she picks up on everything very quickly, but I feel that if too much time passes between one concept to another that she struggles a little, so it is best to go over the note cards, study guides, etc. from concepts that she previously felt 100% about. This also relates to numbers--spelling them, etc. I will be sending the student worksheets on numbers that I have previously created and used in the classroom for her to practice her numbers a little more. She is aware that she needs to study more and make more notecards, so that is very positive."
