Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I practiced all three tenses using textbook exercises. The student will benefit by reviewing all the verbs in previous textbook chapters and on hand-outs. I must say that the student has made tremendous progress this year. She has learned a lot and improved a great deal."
"I started the session with a test I had already prepared for the student in order to refresh her memory after the break, and to see where I should emphasize more to make her more comfortable when creating sentences. She did pretty good on the test. She started to think properly in French, which made it easy for her to say correct complex sentences. The only thing I recommended her to focus on was the irregular verb list that she needs to review and practice, so that her speech would sound more fluid instead of taking time thinking of the verb's category regular or irregular. After discussing the test with her, I started with the Future Perfect Tense which is kind of related to the Simple Future Tense. The outcome was that she did very well in bringing correct examples. The rule was not that hard for her since it's similar to the English one. At the end of the session, I gave her a list of vocabulary which was related to the make-up (le maquillage)."
"The first session with the student was more of a preview of what the future sessions will be looking like. So far, the main concern was to help the student recall the concepts she had already studied. There is plenty of positive promises. A homework was assigned."
