Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student did a nice job this evening. We worked on vocabulary words dealing with family. He read and translated a short story about family. He also practiced completing sentences and using the correct verb forms. Good job this evening. His grade in German has also improved."
"I got a general understanding of the student's ability level. She has trouble with a beginning knowledge of German. I suggested a verb book and post-it notes. I looked at some tests to get a general idea of her skills. This was the first session, and we will start getting her speaking, which will lead to better success."
"The student and I worked on the three cases, Nominativ, Akkusativ und Dativ. I worked with him specifically so that he can identify how elements in a sentence are related, and that he can see what case the sentence has. Does the verb describe the subject directly (Nom) or does it describe the subject's relation to the object (Akk)? He also learned more details about the changes of direct and indirect articles in relation to their cases. We then revisited yesterday's exercise, and this time he was able to identify cases correctly and find the correct article."
