Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student and I conquered the present subjunctive. We reviewed and practiced conjugating verbs. She completed a series of exercises and practiced reading the sentences aloud. She took notes on the irregular verbs as well as different triggers of the subjunctive."
"The student and I studied reading comprehension, asking and answering questions, using cognates to translate unknown words. Also we had a quick review of conjugating preterite, present progressive, and present tenses as well as reflexive verbs."
"Both students have shown great progress with their Spanish skills. When we reviewed what we've went over, they demonstrated strong memorization, especially with regards to how far they can count without struggling. At the end of the session, I introduced them to body part vocabulary, and we will continue with that next week."
"The student and I reviewed interrogative words, and preterite vs imperfect. I introduced affirmative and negative expressions, present perfect tense, direct object pronouns, indirect object pronouns and double object pronouns."
"The student and I went over her homework of "ser and estar" which I believe she is very confident in. She also shows a lot of confidence in stem-changing verbs and rarely makes a mistake in the conjugations. Meanings of verbs and vocab words still give her difficulty, so we made note cards for common verbs she has trouble with. After going over her homework, I introduced expressions using "tener" like "tener hambre, tener miedo, etc." which was a half review for her because she had already been introduced to most of these. At the end, we went over indefinite (un,una,unos,unas) and definite articles (el,la,los,las) and I gave her some worksheets with practice sentences."
"For this session, I helped the student review the verb aller in the present and in the near future tense. We completed several activities to help her associate the tense with vocab and lexicon that she already knows. I started out by asking her what she will do this weekend, and we then talked about pastimes and locations using the verb aller. She feels confident with the new grammar!"
