Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed the 20 or so verbs that the student has for a test this week. She is required to know their definitions, principle parts, and tense forms. There are also a number of irregular verbs. She did a lot of drilling and studying, and is well prepared for the test."
"This session we discussed the student's grade composition again. We spent our entire session catching up on the grammar he's been learning. We practiced translating and applied translating strategies (such as starting with the verb), and reviewed declension and conjugation paradigms. He was particularly struggling to remember these paradigms, so I asked him to memorize on his own time the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd declension endings, and the passive voice endings. I also sent him a video to watch on the passive voice to help explain the endings, and an interactive online tool to use to practice the declensions. He will need to have these endings memorized in order to do well on his upcoming test."
"Today we worked on preparing for the student's Latin exam this week, as well as the final exam coming up in a couple weeks. We reviewed adjectives and participles, among other grammatical topics."
