Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We first reviewed the materials from the previous session, practiced the writing of characters and phrases. She showed improvement by only missing a few this time. Today's new vocab for writing were: cloudy and afternoon. After the study of vocab, we played "five chess" where she progressed a lot. We ended up with a score of 3:2, with her on the winning side, then the real Chinese chess after that. She's getting better each time."
"We reviewed everything we have learned so far. Today's conversation covers from numbers 1 to 15, colors, animals, fruits, vegetables, objects. We practiced all related words. I brought a book about Daddy and son play ball. The student practiced all basic animal words and we will practice them in next session."
"The student had a book with him at this session, so the learning process went more smoothly. We tried to go over every chapter in the book, and expanded to more specific questions or concepts. The student was having difficulty with the usage of "le" in Mandarin, and I was trying to teach him by giving him more specific examples so that he can understand the meaning through the context. Overall, I am happy to work with this student; he works really and he is very eager to learn. He always picks up things very quickly, and we had great communication. I always can see big progress from his learning. He has good pronunciation and a good recognition of the Chinese characters."
