Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We introduced each other in the beginning of the class. Then I asked the student to tell me her goal of study, struggles, as well as her daily English study timeframe. I found out that her goal is to study the same major I was studying - Fashion Marketing. We both felt very happy to meet each other. Later, we made new plans of how to touch on fashion related materials during her daily ESL study, which will help her to improve her fashion related vocabulary while studying ESL."
"During my session with the student, we largely practiced her conversational skills and vowel pronunciation. We also read an excerpt on Groundhog Day, and I answered her questions concerning the technicalities of emailing her boss and coworkers. She seemed excited and positive about the material we worked on, and I suggested she read more literature by poetic prose writers in order to increase her vocabulary. To aid her in choosing a novel, I gave her a free periodical from the library which reviews the latest book releases. I also gave her other free magazines from the library which focus on professional women as extra reading practice with the intention that these materials will help her to feel more a part of the culture. I do not have any concerns from this session. I feel that she has a very good foundation in English and now just needs to practice speaking English as often as possible with native speakers."
"The student did his homework and came up with 5 questions to ask me in a role play press conference. He did a great job with that. We then worked on vocabulary pertaining to profit margin with increases and decreases in a chart I can see a great progression in his language. His HW is to fill out a chart relating to making a contact on a business flight."
