Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The concepts covered this evening were reflexive verbs and personal pronouns. We reviewed sentences together and the different uses of reflexive verbs. She has a midterm exam next Friday. I asked her to practice vocabulary, re-read the section of the chapter on reflexive verbs, and practice sentences on her own."
"Today I helped the student prepare for a test she has coming up. We went over the study guide provided by her teacher. She should do awesome! She has a solid grasp both orally and written on the subject matter."
"I was very pleased to hear that the student got a good grade on her IPA! We went over the student's new vocabulary and verbs. We worked on conjugations of verbs and pronunciations of her new vocabulary list. We went over what will be required on her next test so that we can study with that in mind."
"We covered new vocabulary, reading comprehension, conjugating verbs all related to a food and culinary subjects. The student was struggling the most with conjugation but was determined and was very positive about receiving feedback. We practiced the new vocabulary and verbs in conversation practice and used his family members as a topic of discussion. We then did additional verbal conjugations for exercise."
"The student had a unit exam this week. He reports that it went well but he has not gotten a grade back yet. He feels good about his performance though. The student then let me know that they started a new chapter this week, Chapter 6A. After starting the session by catching up on the happenings of Spanish class, we moved into the content for the day. We decided to spend some time learning the vocabulary for this chapter. It is good to get a head start on this and study the words periodically, this helps enforce learning which in turn improves test scores. We learned the first half of the list, but more practice is required. Next we started on the student's homework. The homework was a worksheet related to Chapter 6a, and included practice with "gustar" type verbs and tv program vocab words."
"Worked with the first student on Algebra 1 and successfully/quickly completed homework assignment. She has made great improvements since we started working together and seems to understand well. Worked with the second student on geometry, as Spanish was not as urgent, and helped her catch up from what she missed from being out of school last week. There was a progression to understanding from the beginning to end of our session, and I think she is caught up in geometry."
