Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In the first half of the session we discussed Agrippa's Letter to Domitian which the student had been assigned for homework. He did a good job of recognizing, and translating correctly, ablative absolutes. He had a little trouble with different expressions of purpose in Latin, dative of purpose, causa, accusative supine, etc. So afterwards we discussed those. Then, we moved on to forms of the supine. Finally, we did an exercise where I would give him a verb and a form of a verb (present subjunctive 2nd person plural) and would have him give me what the form of that verb is in Latin."
"Today, the student and I focused on reviewing the grammar from Chapter 27, going through definitions and sample sentences. We also reviewed verb endings, looking at personal endings within the context of the subjunctive mood. She is doing well with her recognition of subjunctive verbs; understanding the use of the subjunctive in a given sentence is a little trickier, so we'll need to continue to practice that skill."
"Today we continued to work on the student's composition. He has continued to show some progress throughout the last sessions. He has also felt better about the material and has shown increasing confidence tackling some of the issues. He has come a long way since our first session. I suggested he take 20 minutes of his time in the near future to translate the composition he just wrote for his class from Spanish into English. This will help him read Spanish as well as refresh his memory on conjugation and sentence structure."
"The student and I worked on online assignments. He feels like he can do them, he just needs to increase his confidence. We need to focus on conjugations of verbs and adverbs."
"We covered the following topics: greetings, names, feelings, age, birthday, origin, numbers, days of the week, and telling time. We are scheduled to meet again this Sunday."
"The student and I had a great third session. We covered indirect questions and comparison of adjectives (the comparative and superlative degrees), the three topics on his final tomorrow. I feel he is more than ready to do very well on his Latin 3 final. I welcomed him to call on me if he ever wanted to do more Latin tutoring."
