Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student completed the Unit 2 Quiz. He is able to complete the quizzes with a fair amount of direction, and with some review of key concepts. The writing portion was completed to the best of his ability before the 1 hour time limit was reached. We began review of Unit 3, and I re-introduced the 2 types of the future tenses. The student often comments that he has never been exposed to certain tenses or concepts, but I am not sure if it is because these were reviewed too quickly throughout the past school year while he was in Spanish 2. Moving forward, we will review for 30 minutes and then complete the Unit 3 Quiz on Friday."
"We went over giving directions and a few irregular present-tense verb conjugations, but mostly just practiced conversation. The student was much more fluid this time, and I can tell she's remembering her Spanish."
"Today we went over conjugations for the present tense of -ar, -er, -ir verbs and the student seemed to better comprehend the endings and formations of the verbs. We did a bunch of examples on note cards (and orally) as well as reviewing some of the material that the student went over in Spanish class earlier this week with his new teacher."
"We started with going over and completing a homework assignment. The student understood the material well and just needed a few grammar adjustments and reminders. We then spent the majority of the session scripting responses and practicing for an oral quiz he has coming up. We finished with some more review of ser and estar with oral translations from English to Spanish."
"Today we went over all of the perfect tenses. We talked about how to form the tenses which the student has a strong understanding of already. We did some exercises to practice the forms online and I think she enjoyed going over the meaning. We went over formal and informal commands."
"We discussed Spanish location phrases: en frente de, detras de, and al lado de. We started using cognitive adjectives in descriptions. I provided homework to describe people and locations ."
