Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Prepared the student for a test tomorrow: revised subjunctive, reflexive verbs, uses of por y para, revised his cultural material on the Mayas, Guatemala, and Fray Bartholome. He was 87 percent accurate during his revision."
"Studied regular and irregular affirmative and negative commands for an upcoming exam on Thursday. Also, reviewed photosynthesis and the cell cycle for an upcoming exam in Science."
"Direct and indirect pronouns, subject pronouns. Expressions with "me cuesta" and "hace" referring to time: "hace dos anos que..." Listening and speaking activities."
"I corrected a few errors involving the interrogative word 'What' and the conjunction 'what.' The student did well on the vocabulary dealing with health and injuries. I also gave her some notes on the verb 'casser' and 'se casser,' along with some other word choices and connotations."
"I met with the student to make corrections on his script and work on his MyFrenchLab assignments. We reviewed the activities and spoke in French. He is making a lot of progress with the different tenses that he has been learning this chapter."
"The student told me she's really struggling with verbs and negation. I think she just needs more practice, but doesn't know how to practice. I'm hoping to come up with some exercises that will help her. There were a few times when she would ask me what something should be instead of trying to work through it, so I'm going to push back on that if it continues. I want her to think through these things on her own. I don't want her to get discouraged, but she does need to work pretty hard on it. I'm looking forward to seeing her next session to see where we are and work on further improvements."
