Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, the student and I worked through Cicero translations, identifying two indirect statements and working with interrogative pronouns and adjectives to create a cohesive translation. For next time, continue filling in the literary passages."
"We began the session by reviewing the preterit tense for regular verbs. The student then described a recent trip that he had made, using the preterit. He demonstrated marked improvement in fluency. While he had to consult flash cards occasionally to remember a conjugation, he was able to manipulate verbs and draw on vocabulary to get his message across. We then worked on prepositions, particularly positional and directional prepositions. He continues to demonstrate good progress in understanding grammatical constructions and should continue working to build his vocabulary. I assigned him several exercises in the textbook we are using."
"This was our last class, so we had a conversational class. We talked about family, fashion, and speaking other languages all in Spanish. The student has improved her Spanish a lot since the first class!"
