Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I worked with the student one on one, we discussed the remaining of chapter 3 which would include progress in present tense and a big conversational review."
"We worked on beginning level Spanish skills. The focus of this first session was on learning the alphabet and basic pronunciation skills. We practiced forming questions and comments in Spanish which will help in asking for clarification and comprehension. We looked at cognates, and I gave the student an assignment to make a list of cognates in a favorite category. He chose animal cognates. His homework is to memorize the cognates in his list. He also has a homework assignment to take a tour of his apartment with a Spanish/English dictionary and to prepare index cards for vocabulary practice."
"During this session, since it was our first, we set up some frameworks and ideas. I was able to see how the student was able to speak, and I will be able to build her skills from the basics that she has. I need to make sure that her company provides her with materials to practice with every day. I want to begin practicing auditory Spanish with her as soon as possible. The extra practice for her is to pick 15 vocabulary words from the lists I gave her and learn/practice them. She will be showing me her progress at the beginning of the next session by speaking the words."
