Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student has two big exams this coming week, an oral exam and a written test to cover chapters 10 and 11. This was session 2 of 2 this weekend that will cover that material. We covered the first half of the material in the first hour and the oral exam in the second hour. For the written exam, we covered the use of the "se" pronoun, preterite vs imperfect, formal and informal commands, and vocabulary use. For the oral exam, we covered the listening portion and the question portion of the oral exam."
"We covered stem changing and irregular preterit verbs as well as translations. The student received a 96% on her last quiz. I left her with tips for her quiz tomorrow, suggestions on how to use her time this evening, and a song to listen to that acts as a mnemonic device to hold all of those irregulars in her mind."
"I asked the student about what she wants to focus on when we pick back up in January. She said she likes reading stories, so I will probably use more stories to teach grammar in real context, instead of words in isolation for her to memorize. She likes the themed vocabulary lessons, so that will continue as well."
