Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"With the first student, we reviewed what we learned last time. Then we practiced the "massage spa" scenario where he learned other vocab and phrases. We used shorter compound words then moved to longer and more complex phrases. New vocab for him was: combination and massage, new phrase were: "I want...." by the end, he learned how to use all these words to express what he wanted. I gave the second student an overview test today and she did very well! She remembered most of the words and not only understood them but also how to say them as well as writing some of them. Very impressive! We reviewed almost everything, from animals to body parts to numbers, we counted 1-50. Her dictation was excellent as well!"
"We continued preparation for the final exam during this session. There were some continuations from last time and everything went well."
"I brought a new toy for my student in this session, a game which is like monopoly. The student needs to learn the words of animals and numbers, as well as colors during the game. In this session, the first half of class went very well, because the little boy seemed in a good mood and was very happy and willing to say and talk; however, when he lost his interest in one activity, he went away to play by himself. Therefore, I followed him and played along with him. When he was playing with the water balls, I hid many small toy animals inside the bowl, and asked him to find one for me. If he wanted it, I asked him to say the word after me. Overall, it was a pleasant experience with the student. Since he is very young, we were trying to use repetition to help him remember more words."
