Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student is currently preparing for an exam tomorrow so we discussed mostly material that she wanted to clarify. We talked about grammar points and the use of specific vocabulary, measure words, and some questions that can sometimes arise when using numbers."
"The student and I are now ahead of his class by about one and a half chapters. This has been good because the latest chapters contain a lot of new grammatical material. We have begun to turn the corner from sheer character memorization into grammar and composition. His pronunciation continues to improve, and his character recall is impressive. When new concepts are introduced, the student picks up on them quickly."
"Student S was the first today. I played a new game with her to teach some new vocab, which was: rock, scissors, and cloth. Then we played "seven tangrams" to practice colors and two new words: fish and boat. She was great today. Student A had a little trouble focusing today, so we just played his favorite magnets game, and while playing we reviewed some old vocab he has learned before. Then I told him a little story about "a little Chinese monster" which he became fascinated with. Today's new phrase to learn and practice was: "please give to me.""
