Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Student 1: Studied informal commands (irregular verbs, reflexive verbs) and city vocabulary terms. Mary Student 2: Question words: she wrote questions using question words, ar ending verbs, and vocabulary terms lesson 2."
"We reviewed the first three chapters of the second part of the course. Additionally, I mapped out a study guide for the student to use as he prepared for the test the next day. We went over vocab as well as grammatical concepts."
"We continued reviewing verbs, adding some reflexive verbs to the mix. We also did some reflexive verb exercises and added some clothing vocabulary. The student described her morning routine using reflexive verbs."
"This was our first session. We went over a few topics he had already learned with his previous tutor. We relearned a few concepts such are: day, night, numbers, heights, a few expressions and structured simple sentences. I discovered that he has been learning Spanish through English sentences. For example: He is alto. In this sentence we only find one word in Spanish. So, in this session we replaced the pronoun and the verb in Spanish so he learned that adjectives must agree with the gender. I asked him to study these concepts learned in this session to help him get more acquainted with gender."
"We continued to learn expressions on how to say that somebody is smart, angry, or cold; all of which need a different grammatical and lexical construction. Afterwards, we started to learn the parts of the body. Since that is such a long list, we went through around 2/3 of them and will return to it in the next lesson."
"The student and I started by having a conversation about a mystery novel she is reading in German. We then did the same for our weekly news stories. We also looked through the website from which we get our news stories to find potential videos/news that we will watch and then discuss (with no transcript to work with). We decided that, for our next meeting, I will bring some discussion questions relating to our news stories so that we make sure we have a more thorough conversation about them. We have also decided to start having a single, 2-hour meeting per week."
