Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on translating a book from English to Spanish, as well as translating a Beatles song from English to Spanish."
"Today, the student needed help adding to her game show script that we started last week. She herself said that continuing the script was much easier than starting it off, since she was used to the structure of the script and it became more intuitive what to write."
"Today's Spanish lesson was about farm animals. She watched a video of "The Three Little Pigs" being read aloud in Spanish while I wrote down the following animal names: cat, dog, bird, cow, horse, chicken, cow, sheep, pig, wolf, and duck. After she finished watching the story I asked her if she understood what they were saying. She said she understood, but she didn't know what "casita" means. I explained it meant house and when you add "-ito" or "-ita" to a word it means small, so "casita" means "small" house. Then I had her say each animal name in Spanish a couple of times before writing it down in her notebook. After this, I asked her which animal is her favorite. She told me that the horse is her favorite animal so I had her write that down in Spanish: "Mi animal favorito es el caballo". She read this sentence aloud a couple of times to practice her pronunciation. After saying the alphabet in Spanish a couple of times I introduced "Feelings" to her. I had her draw a happy, sad, and proud face, and then I taught her to say each emotion in Spanish. We will cover "Foods" during our next tutoring session, and we will continue discussing "Feelings"."
