Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I discussed the article she will be giving a presentation on tomorrow. We went through and talked out what the short environmental article was about. She was able to learn some new vocabulary. She will have to use the subjunctive tense for her presentation. We made a plan and hopefully she will be prepared. We will try to meet earlier next week to prepare her for the last section of her test."
"The student and I reviewed the first four chapters of his book for his upcoming semester exam. He has improved so much from when we initially started our lessons, thinking about the meaning of the sentences and not just individual words. His understanding of all the tenses has expanded as well as vocabulary. We focused most our time on choosing between preterite and imperfect and reflexive verbs."
"The student took a practice test that I created in order to study for his upcoming final exam for the semester. The practice exam consisted of approximately 75 practice sentences where he practiced conjugating verbs in the preterite, imperfect, conditional, subjunctive, future, and formal and informal commands. We then reviewed vocabulary words that might appear on his exam. He worked very hard, I am confident he will do a great job on his final!"
"The student and I worked on her Spanish homework. Then we went over key concepts that will be on her final exam Wednesday. I gave her a study guide outlining the rules of Spanish commands, and we did practice sentences involving the preterite/imperfect."
"The student and I covered material that would be on the second half of his final exam coming up on Tuesday. We covered preterite vs imperfect again. This week he seemed to have a much better grasp not only on when to use each tense, but how to conjugate them as well. We also covered command forms, indirect and direct object pronouns, and vocabulary."
"We continued to cover the present tense, and we began to discuss the simple past tense. The student seems to be doing pretty well understanding the nuances in French grammar."
