"JAN 12TH, 7:15 pm to 8:45 pm
I met with the student tonight, and we worked on the following:
a) Reviewed all previous homework assignments (demonstrative adjectives &
"saber"ù & "conocer"ù ).
b) Reviewed direct & indirect object pronouns.
c) Reviewed and discussed a paper she wrote all in Spanish about air pollution in Mexico
and how she would solve this major problem. This is an assignment for her Spanish
class due tomorrow. She did a good job.
d) Went over many vocabulary words to describe an automobile (page 129 in her
e) She read a story (pg. 131 - "Por un aire mas puro) about pollution in Mexico that tied
into her paper. We went over unknown vocabulary words. I saw she had difficulty
saying big numbers and years, so I did a thorough explanation of numerical
values in Spanish. I gave her the rules for ones, tens, hundred, thousand and higher
place values. I also did an explanation for numbers in the millions. Then, I wrote on a mini-
white board several examples of different numbers [years, phone numbers, numbers
past 1 million]. She knew how to say them all and answered them with no
problems. She understood the numerical values rules for Spanish and correctly
answered all my numbers questions.
Homework - DUE 1/14: Do Ex 25, #1-8, pg 134 / Ques #1-4, pg 140 (from school
Spanish book) // Workbook #1-6 pg 10 (from my Spanish book)
The student was on point during this session. She feels more confident with each tutoring session. I told her to participate and raise her hand in class so her teacher can see she is progressing and can correctly answer questions in class. We covered everything her teacher did in class and went ahead in her Spanish book. Her father sat in on most of the lesson and was also very happy at how much she has improved. He told me I give her confidence and encouragement. He can see how much she is learning every single week. I am extremely pleased with the student's participation and desire to learn. I keep raising the bar, and she keeps up with ease. She surprises me with her language achievements.
NEXT SESSION: JAN 14TH at 7:00 pm"
