Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
Both students had Spanish homework last night, although Student 1 was mostly working on vocabulary for his test this week and already had most of it memorized. Student 2's Spanish stuff is getting more and more complex as he advances through Spanish 2, which means that his assignments are getting more challenging for him. The hardest part at the moment is still distinguishing between preterite and imperfect tenses, which in Spanish are both used to talk about the past, but in slightly different contexts.
The student and I discussed how his tests are formatted so that I could get a better idea of how to prepare him. Then we went over direct object pronouns and other worksheets from Chapter 6A, which he has just finished. I gave him tips on how to study for his next 100 point test, which will be next week. We decided to meet on a weekly basis with hour-long sessions.
Today we went over the material that is in the current chapter that the student is starting in his class. We practiced reflexive verbs as well as the preterite of ser and ir. We created sentences and reviewed vocabulary simultaneously.
Student 1 - Focused on the preterite vs. imperfect verb tense, explained any completed action in the past calls for the preterite whereas an on-going action or description of a past event calls for the use of the imperfect, conjugated ir/ser in the preterite, since they share a common form, formula of "was going to do doing"= ir(imperfect)+a+infinitive, and concluded with superlatives(mas que, menos que, tan como)
Student 2 - Focused on an upcoming test this Friday, learned preterite endings for '-ar' verbs, broke down pronunciation by clapping out each syllable, reviewed vocabulary, concluded with reflexive verbs in the preterite and 'ir'
Today the student and I went through the material she has been covering, mainly the culture of Argentina. I made sure that she understood the passages that she had read because she said that it was material that could come up on tests. Her main area of weakness is vocabulary because she has not been immersed in the vocabulary for as long as her peers have. We decided to go over the vocab starting from the beginning of the book and covered the preliminary vocabulary in the front of the book and will start going through chapter by chapter all of the material she has missed.
The student and I finished many of his voice activities that he has to record and submit at school. He was able to conjugate most of the verbs without any help and was also able to write sentences clearly and with proper grammar.
The student had an oral exam coming up and a unit exam. We studied and prepared an outline and speaking about her family and likes, description and also using tener que expressions and different ir/ER/ar verbs. I felt she was feeling confident after the session
Today we reviewed for a while because we haven't met in a couple of weeks. We discussed the Past tense (pretierte) and went through several examples, conjugating verbs into the present simple, using them and phrases, then writing the same ones in the pretiterte tense. Next week we are going to re-visit the imperfect tense.
We reviewed vocabulary for chapter 8. I asked him meanings of vocabulary words and also gave him true false statements in Spanish to test his understanding of the vocab. We also covered grammar with the conditional and subjunctive tense. He then completed an assignment. We also reviewed chemistry and he completed a practice problem covering gas laws.
Today, we started a new unit, I had the student write down the new vocabulary words on notecards, and then we did some grammar. I taught him more of the preterite tense, and I also taught about reflexive actions. He understood it, and did very well, we also did 1-2 pages in his packet.
Tutor and student worked with vocabulary assigned for homework, especially adverbs and reflexive "verbs of hygiene;" Then student formed sentences using adverbial phrases of manner, time, and place; Finally, student and tutor practiced naming and asking about the whereabouts of household objects to practice the use of prepositional phrases, and to review the nouns themselves.
The student and I worked on conversation and reviewed previous chapters to asses her level. We also worked on making sentences, listening and reading comprehension. The student has good bases and pronunciation.
