Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student did not have much Spanish homework assigned so we focused on his other school subjects. We finished his Geometry homework, Physics homework, and Spanish homework together. I assigned him extra vocabulary words to conjugate in present and preterit tense. He is well ahead of his Spanish class and did very well on his quiz from last week."
"In this session we reviewed the new verb's conjugations in the preterite. We worked on few exercises focused on the preterite. Also we reviewed the new vocabulary words for winter activities. In addition to that we worked on a few exercises on the indirect pronouns. In this session we worked a lot on applying these new topics in context, through exercises and repetition. For our next session we are starting a new chapter entitled "spare time""
"We read from 33 to 36 in their text. We wrote down some new words. We read part of "CU" and then watched "CU" and other videos in Spanish online. The student was very focused; he seemed to repeat more of the words than ever and try to make sentences."
"Today I helped the student with his homework, which included both imperfect and past tenses as well as a little bit of direct object pronouns. I believe his homework will help him review for his test. We discussed study methods for his test and his teacher's expectations. He is starting to get the hang of how verbs work and correspond in different sentences using the imperfect tense and past/preterite tense."
"We began with the student's questions from last session and a brief review of the numbers. We completed lesson 1 from the book we will use for our sessions. We will continue with prepositions and lesson 2 during our next session."
"Yesterday we practiced using ser and estar in relation to third person inanimate or non person subjects. This established that conjugations for what, for example, a tree does are the same as those of what "he/she" does. We then worked on extending that third person understanding to other verbs. Next week we will work on the past tense and cover animal vocabulary."
