Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student said the last session really helped him in learning and remembering the vocab of the week, so I first did dictations on those vocab, helped him reinforce the memories, then we engaged in conversation with a focus on "home." After that we previewed the next chapter, had conversation on "where are you from?". Next time we'll deconstruct the new vocab of the week."
"We had a brief review of greetings and the character 'na' today before we started our lesson. Then we learned about nationality, country names, city names in China, how to ask people where they are from, and how to answer these questions in different situations. We also learned several common last names in Chinese and how to use the character 'shui'-who in questions. How to answer yes/no questions was also covered in today's lesson."
"The student got an 'A' on the first test. She is excellent. We finished lesson two in this session. The student was encouraged to practice writing Chinese characters and to read texts in lesson two. The student will benefit from spelling/pronunciation drills."
