Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked with the student on an special assignment from school focused on a Spanish speaking country of his choice. We reviewed vocabulary and worked on translating previously gathered information on different subjects about the country into Spanish."
"Review of concepts seen in the previous lesson. Alphabet, spelling, orthography. Good attitude. Same strategies as last lesson. Homework was assigned."
"Today the students and I practice the preterite and imperfect verb tenses and the use of the direct, indirect, and reflexive pronouns. Both students understand the differences between imperfect and preterite. The use of me, te, se, lo, la, y le is still a topic of future sessions to practice and grasp the concept. On the next session, we will finish the grammar review."
"Today we reviewed indirect object pronouns in preparation for his quiz tomorrow. We also reviewed his vocab from the most recent unit and the imperfect tense. We will review for his unit test next week."
"The student continued learning the Director Object Pronoun and the Indirect Object Pronoun, and their applications in affirmative and negative statements. The student has understood very well the use of both figures and their positions in the sentences. Then he will do some exercises as an assignment."
"Today, the student and I completed our tenth session. We began with a short conversational review, going over how to express the calendar date, day of the week, and month. She is showing improvement with her vocabulary retention and is able to recall the correct terms when referring to the dates. We then picked up on vocabulary terms from our previous session involving articles of clothing. We then did a short conversation exercise where I asked her questions using -ar verbs and had her reply using complete sentences and the new vocabulary terms. We spent the rest of the session introducing the verb tener and its many idiomatic expressions that exist in Spanish. We practiced the verb conjugation and then introduced 11 common phrases that use tener + in Spanish. With each phrase, we talked about examples of the expression and practiced mini dialogues with the phrasing."
