Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on her homework for later this week--reading comprehension passages and her written responses. We talked through the questions and formulated answers, focusing on always having a subject and verb for each sentence. We then reviewed our two past tenses, which she correctly explained when to use. We also conjugated verbs (including the irregular verbs) in the future tense one by one. For next session, she is to compile a list of masculine and feminine vocabulary words and review her future tense and vocabulary cards."
"We took an extra hour tonight because he had a lot of material on a test. It was pretty advanced. He definitely got the main ideas."
"The student and I continued to work on vocabulary building. We also played some online interactive games, which reviewed previous vocabulary. The student enjoyed playing the games, and he was able to match the written word to the vocabulary picture by identifying the initial consonant. This indicated to me that we are on the right track with our lessons. I plan to continue to practice consonant sounds and associating them with the written word. We practiced our vocabulary and expressions with picture flashcards. Next week, I hope to review those phrases and words and do some hands-on exercises with them. We concluded our lesson by reading a French storybook he had checked out from the school library. We enjoyed an excellent lesson today, as the student remained focused and engaged throughout our time together."
