Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered her test and 3 week's postings. We watched a video (8 minutes) posted by her teacher and went over the subjunctive in subordinated clauses."
"In this session we studied vocabulary related to media and communication devices. The talked about new technology and its daily use. Later we studied the future tense for regular verbs. We practiced with oral examples."
"We completed three-fourths of the assigned exercises, which involved filling in blanks to complete sentences with correct subjunctive present-tense forms of various verbs. The exercise introduced expressions of belief or opinion, such as "fulano dice ... " or "Rosario cree ... " The student also read each sentence aloud and translated the sentences."
"Specifically, we covered all of the possible uses and triggers for the subjunctive mood vs. the indicative mood. We also covered how to form the subjunctive conjugation in regular and irregular verb forms. We discussed what concepts and vocabulary to go over in the future to prepare for future lessons and for class. The student is a very fast learner! Great session!"
"Today the student and I reviewed the present subjunctive and the preterit. We also reviewed the use of eso/esto/ese/este etc. We completed multiple exercises both written and online. We also reviewed over 120 different verbs -- He knew more than half, which was great! Next session we will continue to review the preterit and review the imperfect as well."
"The student and I are reviewing for his English exam scheduled for March 3. Today we worked on crafting his literature topic outline which he will use to write an essay as part of his exam. He will need to complete his outline by adding more details, including 2 quotations for each body paragraph. We also reviewed about half of the grammar on his study guide. We made a screenshot of notes I have given him on how to find the direct, indirect object, and predicate nominatives in a sentence. He had a little trouble recognizing if a prepositional phrase is used as an adjective or an adverb, so today I gave him test questions to ask for each type to help him with this choice. He understood it much better after the questions."
