Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We spent the first few minutes working on reviewing the poem the student is translating ("Betes" by Pierre Reverdy). Then we did some exercises to review the future tense. He also has a homework assignment to write a story using the future tense in all ten target verbs. I also suggested the student review the future endings and the stems of our ten target verbs, because next time we are going to start the conditional tense."
"We covered much of the vocabulary pertaining to houses and homes (rooms, items in those rooms). We continued working on realistic dialogues that she can use to get ready for conversations. In so doing, we started working on the future tense after having covered the indicative present and passe compose. The student is extremely good with pronunciation and is getting really close to getting the [R] sound right 100 percent of the time. She said she really enjoyed the session. I did too, and I look forward to the next one."
"The student's quiz was postponed so I created exercises to help her practice the vocabulary she was having difficulty with, especially questions she could not answer in complete sentences. She had some improvement during the session. However, the student told me she was sure she would do fine on her quiz. I left her with some study guides to practice before her quiz on Monday."
