Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Continued working on the present tense. Reintroduced the concept of informal/immediate future (ir a + inf). Also worked on some new vocab."
"Practiced using -IR verbs (some irregular and stem-changing). Homework: listen to Vivir mi vida, write two sentences per new verb."
"Presentations, telling the time, nouns (gender and number) and exceptions, articles (singular-plural), numbers (1-50). I left extra practice and completion exercises."
"We reviewed the preterite tense again and did more quizzes. The student did well applying the rules and followed along well. She indicated she had trouble identifying the subject when "me" was in sentences and I reviewed tips for correctly identifying the subject. She completed the tasks I assigned her the day before and she was responsive with the session. She understood well and once again was able to correct herself when there were a few mistakes. I assigned her a worksheet and she was able to do half the worksheet with corrections. I went over the corrections with her and assigned her to complete the rest of the worksheet for the next session."
"Student 1 and I reviewed preterite tense, specifically zar, gar, and car endings, though we also spent some time going over concept of preterite tense. I also met a few minutes with Student 2, who is looking to increase her vocabulary and common phrases. She would like to be able to learn everyday words to use with people she encounters in her daily activities."
"We spent the bulk of our time working with reflexive verbs and reviewing the preterite tense. The student just started learning the imperfect tense in school this past week and was having a bit of a hard time remembering when to use the imperfect versus the preterite tense so we went over that as well. His attitude is still great; he's open with when he feels like he still needs some additional practice with concepts. By the end of the session I had composed a list of verbs we used that day and told him the I wanted him to conjugate them in the preterite and imperfect tenses."
