Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I introduced the student to an online resource that will really help him prepare for his time in Spain. We also discussed reading some of his favorite books in Spanish. Since he is already familiar with the stories, he will be able to understand what is happening and learn new vocabulary. He really seems to enjoy using the site, and we will continue to capitalize on that."
"We covered the student's review for a quiz that would cover a short story in her book and a short video she had to watch."
"The student gathered good information on the form his test at work would take which is very good for us to use as a guide on how we should practice and looks like we are on the right track! The student has been dedicated a lot of energy and hard work on his classes. This time he went over the 6 lessons of his workbook and prepared flashcards for vocabulary. In regards to the tutoring session itself, this time, we covered the topic of home robbery invasion with a scenario built as we spoke to continue enriching this specific vocabulary and reuse the one we had learned in the past. The student shows great improvement when building his sentences and using past tense. Good job!"
"Today we created a list of places in the community where you would go to around town. I explained how to form sentences using the locations around town. The student was able to translate sentences from English to Spanish. Slowly she was able to speak and write simple and compound sentences. I explained the differences between using "tener que," "tengo que hacer" and "hacer ." At this point the student has made progress, and is able to respond to process and translate more and more dialogue each time that we meet. I explained to the student that I would like her to journal one day of activities in this manner and translate it into Spanish."
"We started working with her new Spanish book. We reviewed the exercises she did on nouns, articles and adjectives. We went over estar, ser and subject pronouns."
"Per the student's suggestion, we met in a Mexican restaurant so he could use what he has been learning in a real world, practical context. As such, we focused primarily on restaurant vocabulary and phrases. We reviewed the names of certain foods, as well as utensils. I also taught him several different forms/ structures for making requests. At the end of the session, he was able to ask for the check, say thank you, and tell the waitress "hasta luego" and "que tenga un buen dia.""
