Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed regular conjugations and introduced conjugations of irregular verbs. We went over Spanish conjunctions, numbers, and introductory conversational vocabulary."
"Today we finished up chapter 2, which concluded with regular verbs and making plans. We did oral and written exercises."
"We worked on listening comprehension. I would tell her about my day in Spanish and have her interpret what I said verbatim. I explained to her the method of quoting someone while storytelling using "que si" or "que no". We also did a role playing exercise where I pretended to be a Spanish-speaking patient suffering from chest pain. We practiced words and sentence structure used in this scenario. She also has index cards with useful words and phrases that I began to test her on. We reviewed all of the question words: who, what, when, where, why, which, how, how many."
"Today, the student completed lesson 22. We started with our normal warm-up conversation, and we reviewed the date, the time, days of the week, months, birthdate, grocery shopping, etc. She is progressing at a great pace in her ability to engage in conversation and respond in Spanish, even if she doesn't know the exact word. We focused the rest of the lesson on introducing the verb doler and going over its conjugations, prepositional pronouns, and vocabulary related to the body. We then went into practice questions, which allowed us to practice using the doler construction and introduce additional vocabulary. We are regularly using the present indicative tense, the preterite tense, the present progressive tense, and the present perfect tense in our conversation and practice questions. We will pick up on where we left off for our next lesson and introduce new idiomatic phrases and additional body parts vocabulary."
"Today, we talked about adjective agreement in gender and number. We reviewed the days of the week and the months of the year. We had the opportunity to practice conversation. Student one knows lots of Spanish vocabulary. Both of them have a great Spanish pronunciation. I explained briefly the direct and indirect object pronouns."
"Today, we talked about pronouns. We played a few games and did a crossword puzzle to help the student learn the words. We also talked about different Spanish speaking countries. We practiced finding them on the map, and we looked at their flags."
