Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Great session! The student and I worked on conversation and grammar (ser and estar). She continues to make progress and I have noticed that she has been able to express herself a lot easier by using and applying what we have learned in previous lessons.

On our last session the student and I went over vocabulary words related to careers and college activities. As usual, she practiced the pronunciation of each word, the spelling, and applied each word on a sentence. By having her forming sentences with each word, she is able to explore the different context where we can use the same word. This is very crucial in the Spanish language due to the fact that a word can have more than one meaning. After the completion of that activity we moved on to verbs. The rest of the session we worked on different verbs in Spanish, their definition, and the way we conjugated them depending on the personal pronoun that is performing the activity.

8/26 Today we went over the future, future perfect, and past subjunctive tenses. The student did a great job, especially with the first time using the past subjunctive. We also listened to a song with the subjunctive in it and talked about doing a little practice on the internet since it was the first time she had tried the past subjunctive.

We went over the student's assigned flashcards and focused on conjugating present tense verbs. We practiced reading in Spanish and translating. We focused on irregular verbs, telling time, telling the weather, and describing with adjectives. I assigned him with additional vocabulary to include in his set of flashcards.

I helped teach the student the basics of the German verbs "sein" and "haben." I also taught her the basics of word order. After that, we discussed some parts of German culture (food, the German states, dialects, basic German politics, basic history involving WWII and the fall of the Berlin wall), and I tried to get a feel for what she wants out of this tutoring. Based on this, I suggested that she buy the book "Wie geht's?" which I felt would be the best fit. As for her homework, I made a photocopy of some reading, suggested that she memorize the verb conjugations, and asked her to watch the movie "Goodbye, Lenin!" for some beginning culture context.

The student and I reviewed clothing, colors, and the sentence structure. He's still having trouble remembering to have his nouns and adjectives "agree" in gender and number. He needs some reminding when I walk him through exercises, but often forgets to incorporate what we learned into the homework. Hopefully this is just an issue of not being exposed enough to the material, and will clear up once he has regular Spanish classes. Unfortunately we're stuck with a lot of vocabulary right now, so there's only so much I can do to help him remember the different words, but at least we're close to finishing the packet!

Focused on identifying sounds and letters based on the oral and labial formation. Classified 'oclusiva' 'nasal' 'frictiva' 'africada' 'lateral' and 'vibrante' letters and sounds, associating various words with each as an example while practicing writing out each word phonetically.

Today we reviewed and discussed three difficult but fundamental concepts of the Spanish language: "ser," "estar," and "ir" used to construct the future tense. I believe the student was very happy to see these concepts have many different uses and will significantly expand what he is able to say in Spanish. We will begin next session with conversation and a review of any questions he may have.

Today we reviewed for the student's test about direct and indirect objects. We reviewed by diagramming and writing out sentences in different ways, using both object pronouns as well as completing the study guide.

It was great to see these young men again. They did great even though they were very worked up from school. They had good words they wanted to learn. We read "Green Eggs and Ham" in Spanish. We worked on our little textbooks learning how to say different familial relationships. They are doing a better and better job of just listening rather than getting overwhelmed by the fact that they don't understand every word.

We are preparing for the CLEP test. In the prep book, we did Drill 1 & Drill 2 quizzes. I noted that we will work on some grammar specifics (tan, tantos, etc.) and have an ongoing list of vocabulary that we will review for recognition at the next session. She will continue to do exercises and record trouble spots to discuss at next session.

Reviewed reasons and situations that necessitate the use of ser vs. estar. Reviewed two exercises from textbook and checked answers online, and answered/explained why certain sentences would indicate the use of one vs. the other.
