Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session I helped the student complete exercises in his textbook covering; por vs. para, conjugating the subjunctive tense, and when to use the subjunctive, indicative and infinitive. He has little difficulty with conjugating the subjunctive. He needs more practice with knowing when to use the subjunctive, indicative, and infinitive in a single passage. As we went through the passage I explained the answers, and he had a better understanding by the end of the session."
"Student one: Oral quiz preparation and going over her gustar worksheets. Student two: Geography of Latin America, forms of estar and ser worksheet."
"The student and I worked today on his Spanish. We've started to take a look at the basics to try and build a foundation that he can work from in his current Spanish class. He will be bringing his current Spanish homework next week so we can assess where he is at and get a better understanding of where we can go next. Organization is something that he needs to work on."
"We practiced doing multiple choice questions and reading comprehension that will be similar to what is on the exam."
"I quizzed and presented exercises for the student on the meaning and conjugation of "ser," pronoun usage, article-noun gender and agreement, and approx. 40 vocab words (English-to-Spanish spelling, meaning and pronunciation)."
"We went over Spanish vocabulary and a children's book that they got from the library. Today we very smoothly and we got a lot of work accomplished."
"We worked from the student's Spanish packet. We studied the verb "ser" and constructed "I am" statements with it, practiced with various articles and reviewed words relating to feelings and emotions."
"For a homework assignment, the student had to record himself reading some vocabulary and I helped him with a few pronunciation words, but overall he's great in that area. Then we discussed ser/estar, their conjugations, the differences, and did a short worksheet where he had to select the correct verb (ser/estar) and conjugation."
"Helped with homework and test prep, attempting to move student out in front of class in terms of knowledge set."
"Focused on the palatalization of words derived from ancient Latin-Medieval-present-day Spanish, notating rules of spelling and stresses being either shortened or elongated."
"We read from 33 to 36 in their text. We wrote down some new words. We read part of Captain Underpants and then watched Captain Underpants and other videos in Spanish. The student was very focused; he seemed to repeat more of the words than ever and try to make sentences."
"Conversed in Spanish, went over more places of interest to visit, and practiced everything we had gone over."
