Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session we worked on reading, and listening. We practiced the vocabulary learned last tutoring session, and used it in a conversation. The student was receptive and able to identify the different topics/words/verbs that we have learned so far. I think it was a very useful exercise because the student was able to practice and experience her already acquired knowledge of the language. Her homework was to work on a few vocabulary words she was having a little bit of hard time remembering."
"We reviewed translations the student had completed for the session and discussed how to talk about dates. We then practiced listening comprehension, which he has clearly improved on and completed an exercise on -ar verb conjugations together. I have been impressed by his commitment to learn the vocabulary and pleased with his progress on conjugations. I assigned him exercises and will give him another sheet of translations to complete before Monday."
"The student did wonderfully in her last lesson with me. She picked out one of her Spanish books, and we read it together. We then played a few games in Spanish to review the vocabulary she's been building. I helped her with her week's homework, and then we finished with a pinata game."
"We covered telling time, talking about daily routines, and body parts. The student is doing remarkably better! He is going to practice telling time with his parents."
"Today we went over new vocabulary for places around town. In addition, I introduced a new verb, ir and how to use it in the first person. Both kids are remembering vocabulary fairly well. I left them with some words to finish practicing with."
"The student told me that she wanted to learn how to order in a Chinese restaurant today. She wrote a list with some words that she needed to know, such as rice and noodles. I told her and we practiced between Chinese and English again and again until she was fluent in recognizing the words. Then we played a game of Chinese zodiac. She cut the animals from the paper, and put the animal on the forehead. One person acted like the animal without making any sound. The other person guessed what animal it was."
