Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We studied for the student's chemistry test. I helped him with his study guide and then with doing practice problems."
"We did a lot of family vocabulary practice during this session. We also went over possessive adjectives. The student did wonderfully; she really understands the material. Next time we are going to continue with this and also address er and ir verbs in the present tense."
"We reviewed Pre-k Spanish (numbers 1-10, colors-arco iris-rainbow) We read a book that I checked out at the library about feelings in Spanish "Las emociones"."
"The student's listening is pretty good, but he needs extra help with reading and writing, and the reading includes both characters and pinyin. I plan on going over the reading with him from the very beginning to make sure that he has strong foundation, because all the vocab spirals up from there. I'll ask him to show the class quizzes as well, so that I know what the key vocabulary items are for each story."
"We did our review through games because that's how the student works with best. We played a "word guessing" game, then we played "phone calls to the prince" as well as "hide and seek the objects," all in Chinese. At the end we played Chinese chess game again. She was very good at it and even remembered some of the rules she learned two weeks ago. New vocab words for today were: spike, ride, hide, bike, whip, chop, call, and how to write "America.""
"Today I worked with the student on Mandarin. I first quizzed him on vocab to refresh his memory. He did pretty well. We then worked on some translations from English to Chinese, and I reviewed some grammar points with him."
