Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I met the student for the first time. The student has been learning Chinese at school for about 4 months already. He's struggling with remembering the characters and the pronunciation of the words. So I divided our session into 4 parts. First I introduced him the 3 general concepts of logic in Chinese characters. In explaining the concepts, I also gave several examples on each to show him how it works. In the second part we practiced 4 tones in detail, analyzing the sound of 4 tones and using different examples to exercise the inflection of the tones. I used a little tongue twister for him to be aware of difference in 4 tones. The third part was numbers and the fourth part was conversation. I engaged a Q&A session to see where he's at and what he's working on. We'll continue our practice of tonality, construction of characters and basic dialogue next time."
"I went over "Pinyin" quickly with the student. We also reviewed animal section and started on the fruits & vegetables section."
"The student and I are getting into the groove of doing homework together. We finished reviewing half of her weekly homework booklet today."
