Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Taught the student words from his picture cards. Reviewed previous vocabulary. Taught him fruits and sports. He is extremely intelligent. He has a superb memory!!"
"I worked with the student on a Mandarin essay he had to write for homework. We reviewed kinship terms and some basic grammar constructions. We then briefly worked on his history homework, and we also did some Chinese work from a book I brought."
"We reviewed previously learned vocab first, I selected about 20 words. I told her from now on, we will start to write short mini stories by using words we have already learned, and hopefully by the end of first "vocab book", she'll write a little mini book in Chinese."
"The student and I went over the first chapter of greeting and asking for people's names. I had her read, practice tones and words, and translate the sentences in the textbook. In addition, she learned how to ask and talk about family members. I left her with some rote memorization homework and presentation project for next week."
"Reviewed time expression and went over Quiz 3 with the students. We also worked on verb phrases and made some sentences with time duration. Both students are learning about grammatical structure of before and after. We worked on some examples. I gave them 20 vocab words to review, and I will quiz them over the words next week."
"We worked on new vocabulary today that dealt with the subject of sports and competition. We spent the first half pronouncing the words and understanding their meanings in the proper context. Then, I helped the student come up with five sentences using the new words to complete her homework assignment. She would like to use next week's session to review for an upcoming test."
