Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

In today's session, the student and I covered 60 prepositions - including direction, location, order, and many rhetorical prepositions. We are rapidly approaching the point where we will be able to speak together in French for conversational learning.

We covered the following: - Formulating sentences using the feminine and masculine of words. - Using vocabulary in sentences related to the national holiday. - Using vocabulary in sentences related to celebrations: identifying drawings.

This was an excellent first session. The student has an oral exam on Tuesday in French. She was given a sheet with 37 questions and will be asked to answer four of them. We discussed her background in French, taking other languages, her love of dance and of other activities. All come to play in responding to the 37 questions. I read the questions to her and she responded verbally. We reviewed the vocabulary before we went over each question individually. The student wrote answers to each question and will be reviewing them over the weekend so that she is prepared for the exam. Her confidence increased as we reviewed each question, discussed proper French Grammar, the logic behind sentence structure, phonetics, spelling, and pronunciation. The student is now confident that she can do well on this exam.

Today we went over the material that the student is going to need for his final test in French. The material included basic present tense verbs to be, to have, and to go. We also discussed the vocabulary of places and basic adjectives, as well as articles and prepositional contractions. For the most part, I quizzed him on all the material, trying to figure out what he knows and doesn't know. We are going to meet another 3 times before the test, so I am putting together a couple of games for us to play that will help increase his efficacy.

The student's French assessment test is tomorrow so we spent the entire session preparing for the exam. I helped him practice his essay writing and gave him some tips for how he can improve. I also quizzed him on some of his vocabulary words. I also gave him a list of areas I think he still needs to review. I definitely noticed an improvement in his writing between now and when I first started working with him. In the beginning, he had a tendency to forget to put verbs in his sentences. Now, he usually remembers to include the verb and has definitely expanded his vocabulary.

We reviewed some tenses and idiomatic structures the student had learned in class. We also did a good deal of oral practice. He has solid grammar knowledge, but could do with some more speaking and listening practice. I assigned him to watch a French video for the next lesson which we will discuss to focus on vocab and get him to practice speaking more.

We covered how to conjugate the present, past, future, imperfect and conditional tense in French. We also reviewed some exercises about pronouns from the student's exercise book from school. Since then, I emailed her a written lesson on how to conjugate and a couple of exercises to practice. She asked me to keep practicing the passe compose during our next session on Tuesday.

The student has summer to learn two years' worth of French, so we dove right in, working on basic vocabulary: alphabet, greetings, numbers, date & time. We practiced speaking and pronunciation. She is very enthusiastic and has a good ear.

The student and I worked on the essay she had to prepare for her French final. I was impressed with both her ability to understand the structure and to make her own sentences in French.
