Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student has two more tests coming up, so we focused on studying for those since we have caught up to real time in his class! We briefly reviewed vocabulary to make sure he had those down and wrote down the ones he did not remember on this first try. Then he did a long translation that integrated grammar and vocabulary in order to prepare him for both tests. We talked through the translation completely, then he did another translation proving his knowledge of the vocabulary and the preterite tense and finally reviewed irregular preterite verbs. I was very impressed by his translating abilities!"
"Today for our session we continued practice of the present subjunctive tense. We started off by using some "dominoes" to make sentences in the correct tense. After that we spent some time on the student's homework that is due Friday. To finish, we practiced more conjugation by playing a board game. Once again I was impressed with her ability to maintain conversation in Spanish, even when I was giving instructions and explanations."
"During this session, I helped the student complete his Spanish portfolio. We discussed the topic that would be covered during the interview and the questions that he would ask. Before conducting the interview, he wrote down a few ideas that he had. We then conducted the interview. I then helped him prepare for his two-minute oral presentation about this interview. Throughout this session, I mainly corrected his grammar but also helped him with some ideas in regards to the interview questions and his oral presentation. He did very well in constructing his sentences in Spanish. By the end of the session, he had finished his entire portfolio."
