Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today I worked on restaurant vocabulary with the student. We did a little reading, made some flashcards of new vocabulary as well as talked about what to study and review for his Spanish final."
"Learned new vocabulary words. Studied for vocabulary test. Learned how to put vocabulary words in context of the sentence. Completed homework assignment in the workbook."
"Today we worked on listening homework , as well as began studying new vocabulary for a new chapter. We reviewed verbs already learned and began to classify verbs into how they're conjugated."
"During this session, the student and I reviewed the present perfect tense of verb conjugation. I gave him instructions on how to identify the verb tense and subject in the sentence to determine which form of subjunctive to use."
"We started the session by working on several Spanish worksheets over vocabulary and comparisons. The first worksheet provided pictures of several people and asked us to describe their clothes using vocabulary the student had covered in class. From there, the next two worksheets asked us to compare individuals using comparatives (mas/menos + (description) + que) and superlatives (mas/menos + (description) + de)."
"Student practiced chapter #2's vocabulary and grammar. He still needs to work on his Spanish grammar."
"Great lesson! The student and I worked on conversation, making sentences and direct and indirect pronouns. He continues to make progress with his pronunciation and conversation skills and was very motivated throughout the whole lesson."
"We did the final check-over of the student's project. We reviewed his workbook translation assignments. I discussed further test preparation with the student, specifically which items he should put on flashcards. He said that his Spanish teacher usually helps him make flashcards and that he would do that the next day."
"The student has a test today, so we spent yesterday's session reviewing for the topics that he knew he would be tested on. First, we discussed how to construct the present progressive tense in Spanish, and I mentioned the one irregular form he would see most often. We went over some workbook exercises that required him to conjugate verbs in the present progressive tense, and I also asked him to conjugate these verbs in the simple present tense, since they constitute two ways of expressing the same idea. We then focused for a short while on vocabulary and reviewed the answers that he had gotten incorrect on his last test. We paid special attention to actions that are expressed with one word in English, but multiple words in Spanish. Lastly, we discussed the construction of command/imperative forms in Spanish. I reminded him that there are five irregular forms that he will encounter often."
"We studied for an additional upcoming exam and reviewed the chapter material the student had been working on."
"I worked with the student on Chapter 4 (food and drink, and associated verbs/phrases). I practiced vocabulary with student one and two together, and read two books (Spanish/English) together."
"The student demonstrated understanding of chapter vocabulary; worked on translation assignment for class; completed practice assessments in preparation for the test next week."
