Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We spent the session translating from English into Latin. First we translated verbs specifically, to practice different tenses. We did three sets together and then the student did three sets on her own. Then I had her do a round of noun and verb charts, with word banks for the irregular verbs and the nouns. Next she translated two English sentences into Latin, and finally, I had her do the noun and verb charts again without a word bank. Her grasp of the endings has improved tenfold, and she is much more comfortable with the verb tenses today than she was even yesterday. She has a quiz on verb tenses tomorrow that I fully expect her to do well on."
"We spent some time reviewing her homework first. Then we reviewed the vocab from the last time: the writing of the date. Today's new vocab she learned how to write were: dog, this/here, that/there, where and Chinese language. The new expression was: really? We spent the last 10 mins playing a Chinese "fivechess" game which she learned very fast and became really good at. Today's homework is finish the worksheet and write 3-4 new sentences using the vocab we just learned today."
"We reviewed all the vocabulary words that we learned over the past two weeks. We then did a listening exercise. Afterwards, we did speaking exercise and reading comprehension from the workbook."
