Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Today we were reviewing the student's class material for his quiz tomorrow. He was covering greetings and introductions. We were able to clarify some of his questions in regards to grammar, and I was also able to introduce some new material that was relevant to the topic. Toward the end of the session, I gave him a review of what we covered. Based off of that, he should be ready for his quiz.

The student was very focused today. We were able to accomplish a lot during the session and he was an active participant in his learning. First, he completed his homework through page 96. He did this independently, for the most part, with some guidance from me on understanding written Chinese sentences. Next, we spent a few minutes on his dictation words for next week. He wrote them very well, so he'll study them on his own. We spent most of the time working on the story that he needs to write for school. He came up with a plot line and I prompted him to expand the plot. Using a dictionary when he needed to, he then wrote the story in Chinese, and illustrated it.

This is the last session before the final exam, so we tried to review everything the student learned this semester. We went over all the quizzes and tests she had. I pointed out the important grammar section she needs to review and explained to her the parts she didn't quite understand.

This session we focused on reviewing previous material. I gave the student a quiz on all the vocabulary we had learned. He did well but there were a couple characters he had forgotten. We also reviewed some grammar points, and I gave him homework from his workbook.

I taught the student words that had to do with winter during the first lesson. Words such as cold, gloves, scarf, hot, fire, blanket, snow etc. I reviewed everything I've taught him since our first lesson together.

We reviewed new words from lesson 14, then studied the related text section. We went through some grammar points, especially preposition use and I answered the client's questions. I also I provided related vocabulary and phrases, as well as words that are easy to confuse. We made sentences and went over a lot of exercises. Then, he learned new words from lesson 15 and got through half of the language notes.

The student and I practiced making sentences using "I like". We went through "I like school, I like basketball, I like math." We then used the terms for basketball, math, and school to say " x is fun." I also taught her how to say happy new year. The student and I ran through his action routine quickly and practiced the new terms.

We have reviewed all the lessons and finished Unit 1. The student is able to communicate with the sentences that he learned. He asks questions that show his interests in both the language and the culture. He also learned how to count the numbers and has started to write Chinese characters.

The session went well. We did the first half of the homework and next time we are going to do the second half and see if we can finish. The student should pay more attention to tones in Chinese and practicing more on recognizing the characters. He had some problems in certain words in Chinese, like "xihuan", "chi", "cai", and "de".

I taught the students how to write Chinese characters, which is something we had not covered yet. They were surprised at the complexity of the process, but they understood the concept. It was challenging, but they really enjoyed practicing and figuring out the stroke order together. It was a great lesson and I hope they enjoyed learning a new component of Chinese.

Agenda: 1. Chinatown Field Trip: The student and I decided it would be great to go to Chinatown and test out his conversational skills at the end of March. We discussed topics he would like to learn before that. 2. "I would like": A review of basic pronouns, "I would like..." phrases and basic verbs, such as " To drink", "To eat", "To go". 3. Places: Since we will be tailoring the next few sessions specifically for our Chinatown trip, the student wanted to learn how to ask to go places. We covered places such as hotel, home, bathroom, restaurant.

We discussed open/closed/on/off in Chinese, reviewed how to (e.g. how to open this bottle), how do you say x in Chinese, learned the Chinese word for pen, other/else, matter/problem, question, and zero.
