Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"It was great meeting the student today! She is an exuberant learner and easy to teach. Today we went over a lot of basics and it was great that she already had a list of things she wanted to know before starting. We went ahead and translated those conversational and directional phrases and worked a lot on pronunciation. I recommend the student sit down and listen to the recordings I made for her so that her pronunciation becomes more second-nature to her. Apart from that, just memorizing vocabulary is her homework. Looking forward to next week!"
"The student and I met for an hour today and reviewed basic Spanish phrases to identify what she would like to focus on. We spent the second half of the class reviewing common verbs and regular verb endings. Tomorrow we will practice using regular verbs in the context of practical sentences to build a conversational vocabulary"
"On Wednesday we reviewed ser and estar in different tenses. I also introduced new vocabulary of location words. For practice I had the student translate a handful of sentences using different tenses and different vocabulary words. The reasoning behind this exercise was to have him practice the words and to practice speaking with correct grammar. With guidance he was doing well. I could see that he was working hard and trying his best which I really appreciated. I know that with his great commitment, persistence and desire to learn Spanish, he will get better in no time."
