Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student read a few pages of her own selection to me from the first chapter of her book. She gave me her opinions of the main character and we practiced several idiomatic expressions such as "in passing", "be removed from", and "have a crush on". Then we reviewed our expressions from the previous day in greater depth. For homework, she will be writing several sentences using new vocabulary from her book, from either the first or second chapter which she will be reading for next Saturday. For next Friday, she will be writing a few sentences using "even if" and "even though"."
"We continued to work on speaking and reading. As an exercise, I asked the student to verbally incorporate a state name and two words from a list, into sentences that he spoke to me. For extra practice at home, I provided him with this list of words and suggested that he create more sentences."
"We mainly worked on an assignment of the student's due for English class on Monday. Within the writing assignment, we worked directly on his grammar out of necessity - usage of paragraph intro & outro phrases, as well as appropriate use of particles & prepositions. We also worked on his critical thinking & expressing complex ideas from his mind over the entirety of a written text - paragraph & idea formulation, as well as well as cohesive structures."
