Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student and I practiced e to i changing verbs and o to u changing verbs using servir, pedir and poder (as was done in class). The student completely took the lead during the lesson and did an absolutely wonderful job with all the practice. This is the best he has ever done with conjugations, especially alongside of new material! We jumped right into practice with no need to review the conjugations of the material, and his spelling was correct the entire time. The few errors he made were trivial, and I am confident he will show a great deal of improvement overall on his test tomorrow."
"We began with a discussion in Spanish about his day yesterday, and then we talked about his opinion of The Wall Street Journal, which he had with him. We then did some exercises on the preterite tense and practiced translating the completed exercises into English. We spent the remainder of the time translating two paragraphs from a newspaper article about Mexico's economy, since he has to translate an article for his exam. The student is taking the exam for the first time today. I have asked him to translate an article for the next time we meet."
"The student did excellently this lesson. We did some grammar, but this conversation was the most fluid he has had yet. We finished up tourism, and moved on to the beginning of the next lesson on environment. We ended with limited grammar explanations."
