Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we reviewed some basic phrases and vocabulary, and went over the student's objectives for Spanish tutoring. We tried to speak in Spanish as much as possible, and talked about greetings, the weather, and the days of the week. Toward the end of the session, we introduced some common phrases, especially those used in Guatemala. We made a plan to meet next week, and I will send the student a short piece to translate in advance."
"The student has a final exam coming up so I asked him for a list of grammatical concepts that will be covered. We also reviewed verb conjugations in the present tense. I sent him two worksheets that we worked through together (he will finish one part on his own). He struggled a little to keep focused but otherwise was able to conjugate the verbs accurately."
"The student made tremendous progress on her memorization of the preterite irregular verbs. She completed her homework easily and over the course of the lesson her mastery of the content became apparent."
