Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session I helped the student prepare for her upcoming Spanish final exam. We reviewed most of the study guide provided by her professor and I explained anything that was still confusing to her. She will finish and review the study guide so that we can review that information one last time next week before her exam."
"He completed his assigned homework covering the use of por and para, as well as the imperative form for nosotros. I would provide explanation and guidance as necessary. Afterwards, using an online website, he completed a few practice quizzes on the use of por and para. I also had him redo the parts he had gotten wrong on his subjunctive quiz. I emailed the link to a website which had a good explanation of the use of por and para, as well as practice quizzes. Since they change units quite quickly in class, we decided a good strategy would be to text or email me what unit they are on a day or two before our next session."
"The student wants our sessions to focus on preparing for his Spanish final exam. He is most worried about verb conjugating - remembering how to conjugate verbs correctly in each tense, and also knowing when to use one tense vs. another. He showed me an old test on the present subjunctive and we went over it to correct his mistakes. I then gave him sentences in English to translate into Spanish, focusing not only on properly conjugating the verbs but also knowing when to use the infinite form, the present indicative form or the present subjunctive form. The student did very well and seemed to make quick progress. When I got home I made a worksheet with additional practice (English -> Spanish sentences using the present indicative, present subjunctive, preterite, imperfect, present perfect, past perfect, future and commands.) The plan is to go over this worksheet during our next meeting."
