Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered the infinitive forms of verbs, new vocabulary, and homework. We also did a brief review of the past lesson."
"This session, the student and I reviewed all conjugations and declensions in preparation for his midterm. I will send along a review sheet for further study."
"During today's lesson, the student and I focused on practicing vocabulary for her upcoming vocabulary quiz; we ran through her vocab list, finding derivatives and other mnemonics to help her memorize meanings more easily. We also went through patterns in verb and noun principal parts to make memorization easier. I think she is doing a great job with memorizing meanings. In subsequent lessons, we will review noun endings some more."
"We went over the student's homework. His homework consisted of translation and a set of questions in Spanish. The student was positive about the lesson, and he was focused when we had to go over the stories in Spanish and English. It was a great session."
"We went over the subjunctive and when to use it some more. He struggles with the irregular verbs the most. I'd give him an expression in English, and I'd have him translate using the subjunctive or not. He said he earned an A on his latest quiz in the subjunctive."
"We were working with the preterite and imperfect tenses because the student confuses their use sometimes. He did an excellent job! In the first type of exercise, he had to decide whether to use preterite or imperfect and if he had any wrong, I asked him why he chose that option. As he answered he realized the right answer. In the other type of exercise, I gave him the answers, but some of them were wrong. He had to correct me and explain why were they wrong."
