Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This Monday, the student is continuing his unit on "Describing a House." His upcoming quiz will focus on ordinal numbers, so at our session we reviewed the numbers and I had him write out the rules of ordinal numbers. He then was able to correct his own homework and successfully complete worksheets given by his teacher. I suggest he still practice the ordinal numbers as they act as vocabulary words and require some memorization. We then moved on to SER and ESTAR. I gave him a graphic organizer to fill out the differences between SER and ESTAR and to add some examples of his own. I then read a short passage which included grammar and his vocabulary words. He did well in comprehension as he was able to understand the short question. His homework is to write a paragraph describing his house and to continue working on his vocabulary."
"The student and I covered more examples of the verb "to be" in the first and second person pronouns. We discussed prepositions to help her construct full sentences. Overall, it was a great session."
"Today we had our first test on personal pronouns and the student got a perfect score! Today we started studying the regular verbs in the present tense starting with the verbs ending in AR. We started off with three verbs: comprar, estudiar, hablar and mainly focused on food vocabulary to form sentences. For homework, exercises on page xxi B and D and also page 26 A and B. He is doing very well, and is very motivated to study the material, practicing his Spanish at work, and labeling vocabulary items at home."
