Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student got a 90 on his quiz last week. So far he has gotten back two other quizzes, one in the 90s and one 88%. He is doing wonderfully. Today we went over his homework for the upcoming week online which was quite extensive. Most of it was reading and comprehension. The topics we will be reviewing in the next couple of weeks are the present perfect tense (which we started reviewing today), past perfect tense, and the subjunctive of perfect tenses. The vocabulary is about health and fitness."
"Last night, both students and I had our last session for the school year. To finish off the year, we reviewed the last three grammatical topics: reflexive verbs, lo and lo que, and the present progressive. They were provided a study sheet which they filled in with definitions of the concepts. They also completed the exercises that were on the study sheet, which required them to use each one of the grammatical topics mentioned above. Now they have a complete study guide with all of the grammatical topics that they have learned during the year. They know that they can contact me via email to discuss and provide feedback on any written compositions they might have to write in preparation for their final exam."
"We spent the bulk of our time constructing her speech that she has to give on a natural disaster, and then practicing it. I gave her lots of guidance on pronunciation, and we repeated it together over and over until she had all pronunciations correct. After we perfected that, we went on to some new tenses. I introduced her to the present perfect and the past perfect and showed her several applications of the tenses. Finally, we practiced diminutives and augmentatives. Overall it was a wonderful and productive session!"
