Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I have asked the student to translate on a separate sheet of paper two additional reading comprehension exercises for homework. The student and I worked on creating more flashcards for vocabulary from previous chapters since he seems to do well with remembering vocabulary from flashcards. We also worked through some reading comprehension exercises, and I have asked him to study his flashcards and translate a reading comprehension passage."
"The student and I began working on the written portion of the IB exam, practicing critical reading of sample texts and responding to directed questions of those texts. The student did well, and can continue to improve with practice deducing unknown words/phrases from context and making guesses at the meaning. We will continue to work our way through the sample exams, which should give the student plenty of practice to be prepared for the exam. We closed the session with some brief conversation practice."
"In this session, the student and I worked on the preterite. We studied the structure for the preterite, as well as the end patterns of regular verbs that end in -ar,-er, and -ir. Also, we practiced a few exercises in context. It was a productive session. The student is very hardworking and seemed to understand this new tense. We will continue to practice so it can become more comfortable for her."
