Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed and completed grammar exercises from her exercise book. Covered topics including the use of various verbs."
"We covered the use of "hay + nouns", and the different uses of the verb tener. We need to practice the new vocabulary everyday, and keep motivated! Remember that we have to think in Spanish! Please, watch TV in Spanish and listen to the radio when you're driving."
"The student and I revisited past vocabulary words such as the months of the year, days of the week, seasons, family members, and occupations. We also practice the Ar, Ir, and Er verbs; Ser vs Estar; and Irregular verbs. She knew the material very well. She actively participated throughout the session."
"The student did great on his first session as we mainly prepared for his upcoming exam. We reviewed all of his terms and then discussed them in detail. I recommend that he review his index cards we created in order to ensure maximum retention of the material."
"We looked at some new concepts on the chapter and course review. We thought through some understandings of some Spanish phrases that don't directly translate to English. Then, we looked at the importance of the infinitive."
"This was our last meeting before the student's IB Spanish oral presentation. We practiced writing and preparation by viewing images and writing about them as well as answering questions about her previous writing. She was concerned about variety of structure, so we talked about the simplest ways to create variety and advance answers. She shared with me that she scored very well on IB English oral presentation."
