Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Reviewed Pinyin, numbers, months and conversational Chinese. I taught him new words and more basic conversational Chinese. The student is doing great. He catches on everything super fast and is extremely smart."
"This was a great session. The student is getting used to Chinese tones and pronunciation. Her accent and pronunciation is much better now. Sometimes she can sound exactly like me when she is repeating after me. Today we learned how to say some colors. Then we learned how to greet people in the morning, afternoon and evening. We also started building sentences using the words I taught her during our last two sessions involving family members. She is interested in talking with me which is great."
"We reviewed the phonetic system (Pinyin), counting (0 to thousand), questions related to numbers (date, year, month, birthday, say of the week, age, telephone number etc.), countries, languages, and how to ask someone's nationality and the language someone speaks. The student showed progress in character writing."
"Two of the student's classmates joined us today and we practiced the pronunciation together. We did several mini quizzes during today's session and it went well."
"Today we did a brief lesson/review on birthday-related vocab. After, I let her choose what she wanted to focus on and she asked to learn how to look up words using the digital dictionary. We then ran flashcards using the dictionary as a fallback when she didn't recognize a word."
"We learned some basic sentence structure like affirmative sentences, negative sentences, choice sentences, interrogative sentences, and passive voice. The student's homework is reviewing the word charts and the 5 sentence structure."
