Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session I asked the student about her activities this past weekend and her plans for next weekend. She was able to transition from the past tense to the future tense well. After that I had her continue to work on "por vs para" with a couple of worksheets. While working on these worksheets she found that she had difficulty with three of the rules under this topic. I told her that I would bring exercises for her to practice, and further see the difference between these three rules to the next session. For homework I asked her to write 6 sentences using "por" and 4 sentences using "para.""
"We went over more subjunctive and worked on conjugation in sentences. We also specifically worked on food, nutrition, diet, and verb vocabulary. The student has a great attitude and has figured out how to conjugate in the subjunctive. Next session, we will be working on verbs and when to use subjunctive vs indicative."
"In this session, we covered the use of various prepositions, such as "to" "at" "by" and "in" in the context of expressing location or arrival at a particular place. We also finished covering the difference between "will" and "would" and when to use either, as opposed to present tense. Along these lines, I introduced her to using "if" in a conditional clause, along with "would." I left her with a simple homework assignment, to write down five sentences that use "would" and five that use "will," and try to use the propositions we covered as well. She understood the concepts covered but needs to practice on her own as well, which is why I think basic homework assignments will help her improve along with the flashcards."
