Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on the oral exam that the student is going to have on Monday. We tried to cover a lot of topics. Her vocabulary is fine, but she still struggles with conjugations. I'm going to be hitting those pretty hard in the next week or so before her final exam. I sent her some additional study material to work on and plan on making some additional study materials before Monday."
"Today the student and I continued our review of pronouns and using them to replace previously used nouns. We went over direct object pronouns, indirect object pronouns, y, and en. The rules for their placement, their order and their use are pretty complex and I feel like we could continue working on them for another class. We also tried to discuss fashion just a bit. It was okay, but he definitely needs to practice and we just didn't have as much time as I would have liked. I asked him to write a paragraph or two about his opinions on fashion so he could get some ideas in his head for next time about what he'll say if asked about the topic."
"The student demonstrated a significant improvement in her conjugation skills, achieving a score of 86 on her last exam compared to her first exam score which was much lower. She also shows great reading comprehension skills which are improving with the state assessment exam exercises we reviewed this session."
"The student reported that she received a 76% on her latest French exam. Apparently this was a good score compared to most of the other students who either failed or got a "D." She adores her new teacher who hopefully will be there for the remainder of the semester. The new section in her textbook is centered around asking questions in French. She was able to email me her digital textbook so we could look over the section. After a preliminary explanation of the concepts, we went over several exercises in the book to review. By our next session I will have prepared exercises that go over specific issues we had during our session. She appears to be confident in the material and hopefully as our sessions increase, so will her exam grades."
"We went through the new vocabulary for this chapter. Then, we talked about what demonstrative pronouns are and how they work, practiced replacing a few things, and spent the rest of the session talking about the subjunctive - what the necessary conditions are, why we use it, how to conjugate it properly."
"We covered the plus-que-parfait, the equivalent of the past perfect in English. The student did not seem to have any struggle with the material. We did many practice questions."
