Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed the student's written and exam and worked through the corrections together, as she has to turn in a corrected version. I had her do some extra practice with subject verb agreement in the past tense. Again, I feel like when is really focused on the context, Spanish comes much easier for her. I also encouraged her to be careful about spelling in Spanish."
"We primarily focused on reviewing how to conjugate verbs in preparation for the preterite tense. After reviewing how to conjugate regular verbs we went over the process for conjugating regular verbs in the preterite tense. The student seems to be improving in his ability to conjugate verbs, but it is still something I think we need to be practicing each session."
"Continued to work on subjunctive uses. Needs review in future and conditional tense. Will work on that next week."
"The student needed help on filling out a three page study sheet that would prepare him for an upcoming test. He is beginning to start a new novel, The Book Thief, and had a historical background sheet to read and answer questions. We looked over the new Latin grammar he was learning in class."
"Today we went over adjectives and some of their derivatives. Most of the time was spent working on exercises and review, particularly on the learning how to write and translate the Sanctus prayer. The girls memorized the prayer, but they struggle with writing it down and translating it, so that is something we will need to work on. Also, after we finish lesson 15 (we just finished 14), we will be having an exam. I am going to write up a study guide for them this weekend for Monday, and the test will be either on Thursday or Friday, covering all the material they have learned thus far."
"Today, we first had another conversation about making sure the student tells me when he isn't doing well. His nanny sent me his grades and all his blackboard information, which includes all his homework, vocab lists, schedules, etc. Now, I am finally fully informed on how and what he is doing. We went through his homework assignment due tomorrow together and studied for his vocab quiz."
