Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today (9/10) we went over conjugations for the present tense of -ar, -er, -ir verbs, and the student seemed to better comprehend the endings and formations of the verbs. We did a bunch of examples on note cards (and orally), as well as reviewing some of the material that he went over in Spanish class earlier this week with his new teacher."
"Initial meeting with the student. Looked over his Spanish II material and what he may be struggling with. Went over vocabulary, reflexive verbs, and possessive adjectives. We also went over his schedule to see what was coming up in his class."
"The student has done well with subject pronouns/Learned in English and Spanish. Conjugations were new material for the student. He did well. Listened to the video and filled words in the blanks. He did well on this too. Reading and pronunciation: we went over pronunciation. We made new vocabulary index words. This will provide a great start for the next chapter."
"We went over vocabulary- colors, family, animals, and food. I asked the student to tell me about his family, what he likes to do in his free time, what music he likes, whether he knows about Latin American/Spanish music. We also went over numbers and days of the week. I explained how to roll the Spanish ''R." His attitude throughout the lesson was a very positive one, and he showed lots of enthusiasm and was eager to learn more. My strategies included going over the basics to test his Spanish. His main goal is to try to learn to speak and to understand Spanish as fast as possible. I gave him some homework- to review vocabulary. We have another session on Friday."
"Yesterday, I met the student for the first time. She seemed eager to learn. We jumped right in. We went over the present and preterit tenses. We also went over definite and indefinite articles. We also went over a plan of attack for the next few weeks. We then went over gender and number. We also went over the present progressive."
"Alphabet and pronunciation, basic vocabulary, and basic verb conjugation. Since the student has no experience with Spanish we are starting at square one, and he is getting the hang of it. I left him with vocabulary lists and charts to help with basic verb conjugation."
