Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
After the writing assignment, I went over his pre-quiz with him, focusing mostly on the different definitions of "savoir" vs. "connaitre." I then quizzed him on his vocabulary and circled words that he had difficulty remembering.
He worked very hard on his writing assignment! I would provide him with guidance but always asked that he try to formulate the sentence on his own before I would step in to help him. The writing assignment prompted our discussion of two factors: simple past vs. imperfect and the usage of articles. He took notes during our discussion of that as well.
In order to study for the quiz, he will look over his pre-quiz, review the difference between savoir and connaitre, and go over his vocab list, paying particular attention to the words we underlined during our quiz."
1. Is there a que with two subjects? (Compound sentence)
2. Is there a fixed construction like il faut?
3. Is there any emotion, such as ravie, craindre, etc.?
4. Is there doubt, such as doute, ne pas etre certain?
5. Is there will/wish, such as aimer, preferer, etc.?
The next concept to go over again was lequel vs. celui - and with the previous lessons, she was incredible confident and provided fast, correct responses to the questions.
Our last, big lesson for the session was over si clauses. We shorted and simplified the use of them in order to match the level of the test, and provided a chart that pairs the possibility of tenses together. The most important aspect was to remember that the "conditionnel" always is paired with the imparfait.
After these discussions, we constructed sentences and practiced translating sections of a book. We worked on breaking sentences into component parts, and how to determine the gender of unfamiliar words. This section was designed to help prepare for test taking.
At the end of the lesson, I handed over copies of useful charts and diagrams, and then made suggestions for how to study. She seemed open to the ideas of vocabulary memorization. First, there's the rote memorization of vocabulary cards. Secondly, if she ever comes across a word she doesn't know she should look it up and then write down the definition for memory.
Also, it would be good if she wrote a short journal entry every day before the test. She could pick out one section from her review for each day, and write three to five sentences using the grammar from those sections. She agreed to this, and it is my hope this will engage her creativity more than simple flashcards."
