Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I studied for his quiz on negative commands. We completed some exercises that showed the pattern between the Ud. formal conjugation and the ud. negative conjugation. We also covered the nosotros and its spelling irregularities. I told the student he needs to study the definitions of the verbs and to review conjugation for the words before his quiz on Monday."
"We continued to work on the student's understanding of preterite vs. imperfect tenses for verbs. To improve her writing and expression in Spanish, along with her grammar and vocabulary, we continued to write English stories into Spanish to allow her to train her brain to think and express itself in Spanish while improving her vocabulary and conjugation. She indicated that this was helpful and more fun than just copying what is in the textbook, as writing helps her expand her vocabulary."
"The client is taking Spanish II and had a new list of vocabulary including nouns, verbs, adjectives, and an introduction to the preterite tense. He's not back in school until next week but wanted a head start on preparing for upcoming quizzes and assignments."
"The student started learning the new vocabulary for chapter 9. Today I really noticed how much his reading comprehension and pronunciation has improved. He is making really good strides in that area. We defined most of the new words and did a couple of exercises from the book. Overall, it was a good session."
"We continued working on Spanish. We went over preterit and imperfect conjugations. We also went over vocabulary. We went over preterit stem changes. We then went over a few translations. We reviewed a homework assignment together. We also went over when to use imperfect versus preterit endings."
"We began covering the verb "hay" this evening, and started learning about its uses. We also covered interrogative words and ways they are used. We practiced by translating sentences from and to English and Spanish. The student is picking up Spanish very well, and I really enjoy working with the family!"
