Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I helped the student study for his vocab of the week. We analyzed each word's construction and meaning, then we studied compound words; then we used these words to make sentences. At the end, I did some dictations on the words and the student practiced making sentences."
"I can tell the student studied before we had our lesson. He memorized most of the vocabulary we went through. He is very hard working and the most important thing is he wants to learn. I am sure he will be great in Mandarin."
"In this session, we played together, the games including cutting the fruits (toys), animals, and other toys the student had at home. During play, we used repetition practice in order to enhance the student's memory and impressions about the vocabulary. The student was more open to talk to me and willing to speak Mandarin. His grandmother told me that once he was even counting numbers in Mandarin by himself, which I thought it was a big progress. On the other hand, I found out that while the student lost his interest in one activity, I could just play along with him and talk to him in Mandarin so that I was able to create a Mandarin speaking environment for him."
