Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I really tackled the material to dig in and learn German -- there is some complicated grammar that we need to work on . I think that with regular tutoring, the deficit will be straightened out. What I would like to do is start working with him to develop his vocabulary more, and we'll cover the grammar in context as it comes up."
"We went over verbs, reviewed nouns, and talked about prepositions. We also discussed the cultural aspects of German-speaking countries."
"We practiced ways of talking about the future, using "werden" (will). We also practiced talking about potentialities."
"The student earned a B on his big presentation on Latin American artists, which has improved his grade significantly. His parents appeared pleased, and so was he. This project concludes his unit on art and ushers them into the next unit, which focuses primarily on music. At our session, we began by translating all the new vocab words. We then went over homework exercises that focused on reading comprehension. At the end of the session, we reviewed the vocab to ensure retention going forward."
"The student has a good attitude and is putting effort into learning. He is working on expanding vocabulary. We worked on verbs, verb tenses, nouns, adjectives, and writing sentences. I had left him with a review exercise that he was to email me. I then recommended he use his planner to help him with his organization & study skills. He agreed to start using it."
"The student has a quiz tomorrow, for which we reviewed. Specifically, we covered demonstrative pronouns, adverbs, ir/er preterite tense, and sports vocabulary. He was focused and did really well. He definitely has a good grasp of the subjects and should do very well on the quiz."
