Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we had a general review for the test. I had the student read all the vocabularies by herself with help in need. She did a good job. I then went through all the six topics (after the last test) including Food, Order in a restaurant, sickness and symptoms, household, shopping, and transportation. I have also attached all flashcards or videos to help her review by her own after class."
"I helped the student out with the exercise questions on her text book. We learned to use the given expressions to answer questions and translate sentences into Chinese. We did one hour session for today, but we will do 2 hour session for tomorrow."
"We discussed the recent exams that the student had taken and focused on strategies for improving scores in each section and also discussed the mistakes that the student made on the exam. The student had a positive attitude towards the material that we covered and was aware of the problem areas on each test. She was motivated to understand why she made mistakes on the questions that she answered incorrectly. For this lesson, I gave her some study tips and strategies to work on for practicing outside of class and preparing specifically for exams and we will continue to work on more later. For the first lesson I think it went very well."
"I first worked with the student on his social studies homework on Andrew Jackson. I then taught him a new grammatical construction and I gave him a few example sentences and had him come up with a few on his own."
"The third tone sandhi, the sandhi of bu, yes-no question, the sentence with the adjective predicate, and the text two were introduced in the session. The student was very talented language learner. The student was encouraged to practice writing and reading the basic Chinese characters."
"Today, we covered unit 5 lesson 1 and previewed for unit 5 lesson 2. We worked on translation skills and vocabulary from both lessons. The student should be able to translate the dialogue for lesson 2 by next session."
