Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Our first lesson! We learned greetings, practiced the alphabet and talked about the Arabic influence on Spanish culture. These two ladies are so fun to work with and are very eager to learn and apply as much as they can."
"We reviewed unit one in the student's Spanish textbook, as her teacher suggested. We reviewed vocabulary, the verb ser, and days of the week. She worked through two lessons on a language learning website."
"We covered body parts vocabulary, reflexive verbs, action verbs. We went over school homework and pre-test practices. I assigned student to watch a movie and provide a summary."
"Both students completed their summer Spanish review with the practice of the imperfect, applications, and exercises. They also practiced reading and pronunciation, translation and comprehension. This was their last session for the period, and now they are ready to return to school. They had a remarkable improvement in reading, pronunciation, comprehension, and translation, and the use of the grammatical tools required at their level of knowledge, beyond the expectations. Their fluency and dedication to the Spanish language show their positive attitude to learning Spanish as a second language pretty soon. Working with them was a great experience, and a highly satisfactory tutoring task."

"First meeting. The student and I discussed his history with Spanish and what he would like to work on. We went over some vocabulary words. In addition we reviewed introductions in Spanish, subjects, verbs, and subject pronouns. I assigned him some homework to complete before the next session."
