Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed a homework assignment he had already completed. Afterwards I had him finish the worksheet on gustar (and similar verbs). At the end we finished with a game of "memory", matching the infinitives of regular verbs with their English definitions, since the student's had to learn so many verbs so fast and he doesn't get a chance to practice them."
"The student wanted to review and practice for her Spanish 2 test. Her teacher had given the students a list of grammar and vocabulary items to know for the test. The list included the preterite tense, demonstrative adjectives and sports related vocabulary. We used the practices in her test book for the review. She did very well in all areas of the practice and review."
"We did more review on reflexive verbs and pronouns and went over the student's homework discussing the parts he didn't understand. I explained the different ways to structure sentences using reflexive pronouns and he practiced using the examples in his homework. I continued to have him make flash cards for words or verb conjugations that he did not know. We discussed a plan for reviewing for his upcoming test in the next couple sessions."
"The student and I practiced writing sentences in the present tense using her vocabulary words that were assigned to her for this week. She did a really great job developing original sentences. We then practiced preterite and imperfect, and discussed the situations for which each tense applied. We practiced conjugating in the preterite and imperfect for various verbs, regular and irregular. She is doing great work!"
"The student just came back from a two weeks break. She hasn't had chance to finish her homework so we spent some time on her homework first. Then, we reviewed the vocab from the last time. Today's new vocab she learned how to write were: dog, this/here, that/there, where and Chinese language. 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 learned 6 sentence structures, the names of colors, how to say time, and some fruits and nuts. Homework is to review what we learned at this session."
