Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We began the session by establishing a calendar of our proposed meetings. Today we covered Lesson One in the English conversation book. I introduced the book to the student and explained to him how the book was laid out in thirteen "conversation" chapters. I told him that we would completed Lesson One today and continue through the book each meeting. The chapter discusses the vocabulary and structures people most often use to introduce themselves. We discussed the particular conversation idioms used and their meanings; then I asked him to take me on a tour of his workplace and explain to me as clearly as he could the details of what he does at the location. He was to introduce me to whomever we met and then listen to our responses to each others questions, mirroring what he had studied in the chapter. The lesson ends with ten exercises which I assigned as homework for our next meeting on Thursday."
"We read for nearly an hour from the young adult book the student chose, reviewing to make sure his reading and vocab comprehension were good. We finished up with a short reading of two magazine profiles."
"Today we: 1. Reviewed a phrasal verb worksheet with "around" 2. Read and discussed: 15 Character Traits of the Ideal Employee 3. Talked about interjections and how English speakers use them"
