Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed the student's practice exam in preparation for exam this Friday. The concepts include present, preterite, imperfect tenses, and reflexive pronouns. The student understands the sentence structure, meaning, and which tense to use. She has a good understanding of the reflexive pronouns and a verb conjugation ending. I encourage the student to continue practicing her vocabulary (sports and extended family members) and practice verb conjugations."
"We continued the concept of medical terminology. Her attitude is positive because she is learning; she also likes the material that was shared with her. We did learn more medical vocabulary."
"The student and I spent a few minutes working out some algebra review and then pushed forward for 1:15 on Spanish verbs. We worked on spelling, meaning and pronunciation and went through a number of different online quiz platforms to try to develop different knowledge (flashcards, English-Spanish translation and Spanish-English translation). This was helpful and I could definitely see progress throughout the session, though I think it was a bit intensive and tiring. I made a list of verbs that were forgotten a few times so she can look back at those and help distinguish between similar sounding verbs in Spanish."
"The student and I went over the present progressive form. After reviewing her last test, we came to the conclusion that she needs to not rush, pay more attention to instructions, and go the extra mile for this class. I suggested a few new techniques for learning the material, including writing down sentence structure formulas on her exercise pages and writing the meaning of words she did not know."
"The student and I have been reviewing the reproductive system and life before birth. We have covered labeling, menstruation cycle, time line of the embryo/fetus, female/male reproductive system, and hormones."
"The student let me know that he has a writing test this week in his Spanish class. To prepare, we reviewed concepts, both individually as well as comparably. We reviewed the conjugations of each tense, and we discussed when to use each. We then did a practice writing prompt, "What were you like as a child, and what did you do?" We concluded the session by using the internet for more past tense practice as well as vocabulary practice. The student did excellent with it. Keep up the hard work!"
