Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We did reading comprehension by doing a school assignment. A brief story about Latin American independence movement heroes. The student read the story aloud in order to practice her speaking skills. She reads Spanish very well and pronounces most worlds correctly. We just have to work on how to say numbers. We also covered the present perfect tense by doing fill in the blank and multiple choices exercises online. She got quizzed on the assignment (watching the Spanish sitcom). She did very well - used correct words and showed she is following the story line. Her answers were all spoken in order to practice pronunciation."
"During this session we worked on the student's homework. We covered interrogative words and preterite vs. imperfect. I asked her to read the questions aloud in Spanish and helped her with any vocabulary questions she had. She needed help with understanding when to use the word "cual" vs. "que" and when to use the preterite vs. imperfect, and by the end of the session she had a better grasp of the subject."

"Today we covered verb + infinitive as well as more past subjunctive. This helped him be able to do the homework assignment he is on and we went over that together. He is doing great and works hard between sessions."
"The student had a quiz this past week and said she did well on it. She still wanted to begin by reviewing the verbs "saber" and "conocer" as she had a couple of sentences she just wasn't quite sure about. We then reviewed comparison expressions and I tried to help her prepare for some personal responses she will need to give for one activity they will cover in class this week. We finished by practicing time expressions."
"Today we went over more basic conversation, telling time, the differences between ser vs. estar and which adjectives are more commonly used with each respective verb."
