Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we reviewed the material we went over last week as well as worked on learning new verbs and parts of the body. The student conjugates his verbs very well. We worked on reading comprehension of some paragraphs from the second unit of the test book."
"Today the student and I had our last session. In this session he learned to conjugate -er and -ir regular verbs in the present tense. He read through examples of conjugated verbs and completed two exercises where he conjugated regular -er and -ir verbs in the present tense. He conjugated every sentence correctly! I think that he is ready to move on to the irregular verbs next, it is chapter 6 in his Spanish book."
"We specifically went through a chapter in a reading for class and I helped her with a summary paragraph. Her translation of the chapter was great."
"Today the student and I went over scheduling for the first few minutes, and then we went over some review. We reviewed some of the worksheets that I copied for him from chapter 1 and 2, having to do with conjugating both forms of the verb "to-be" (ser and estar) and we also attempted to read some full paragraphs in Spanish, that included things he's learned thus far. The paragraphs are something that he is very much interested in. It tests his skill, but also challenges him, which he seems to appreciate."
"We covered V+-inf with (gustar, tener que, ir a..) to express purpose in the affirmative, negative and interrogative form. We did a listening exercise (video) on San Juan de Puerto Rico with vocabulary on the cultural aspect, specifically visual arts."
"The first portion of our session was dedicated to reviewing two of the major exceptions to the general rules of the passe compose. Both deal with situations involving direct objects. The student had a couple of questions regarding these, and after they had been addressed, we moved on to a practice activity. I adapted a paragraph from another textbook I have, composed in the present tense. I had him read it and then rewrite it in the passe compose. He did very well, getting hung up on only a few irregular past participles. We finished our session by learning the third and final exception to the normal passe compose rules. He breezed through an exercise in the book practicing it. For homework, I asked him to complete the remaining exercises in the chapter on passe compose so that we can move on in our next meeting."
