Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Great class. We first translated a list of sentences from English to Spanish, that contained question words like who, when, why, and how. Then we started watching the 2nd episode of the set of three Spanish (Castilian) videos. He will listen to the rest of the video to see how much he can understand on his own."
"Today we went over verbs int he present tense and had more practice making up sentences. The student did very well. He is memorizing the material and knows and understands how to apply it. He is also doing a great job at applying what he learns at work. We started learning about 'ser' and how in Spanish there are two verbs for the verb to be. We went over the conjugation, when 'ser' is used and worked on some sentences. Today we also worked on pronunciation and reading comprehension. For homework, he has to work on questions about the reading on page 4 and the word hunt on page 5. I also want him to ask his employees and the people he deals with on a weekly basis where are they from and to write about it."
"For homework, the student had taken vocabulary words and basic verbs/questions from previous handouts to create his own sentences. He typed them up and read them to me to check comprehensibility. He did really well with this exercise. I showed him the flashcards I had made for him so he could continue quizzing himself and physically mixing and matching to form different phrases."
