Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session we prepared for student's test the following day. We began with a review of subjunctives and subordinate clauses, followed by infinitives (indirect statement) and finally ablative absolutes. For each area, we mostly worked on example sentences that increased in difficulty as we proceeded. He did well, and we once again worked extensively on having him double check his work to ensure maximum success."
"We reviewed the comparative and superlative forms of adjectives and adverbs for the student's test on Wednesday. She had everything well memorized. We then went over translation passages, and I went over translation technique. We used the translations to review noun cases and declensions. We then reviewed the demonstrative pronouns. Lastly, the student got a head start on the translation passage the class will be going over next week."
"Today, the student and I went through her last test. It looked like overall, she understood the broad concepts, but had some issues keeping track of all the small details needed to translate Latin to English and vice versa. We reviewed some elements of purpose statements, and we also went through some older concepts that she had forgotten (future tense, reflexive pronouns). Finally, I advised her to make a list somewhere (on her iPad or in a notebook) of vocabulary words that she notices that she frequently misses; on this test, there were two words that she seemed to have trouble with."
