Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed all the content from the first sessions and tied it back to the current session. We practiced pronunciation and went over how to use certain problem words and sounds in Spanish. After this we began practicing using a script. It was about four pages long, and used all the content we had already gone over."
"The student and I prepared for her final exam on the following day. We mostly reviewed Spanish culture by making flashcards with important historical facts/dates. We had reviewed verbs/grammar during the last few sessions and felt comfortable with it - she said she thinks the verb mastery went well last week."
"Today I worked with the student on studying for his final exam. We broke down all of his units into 3 groups of two and studied vocabulary from one of those groups. We worked with flashcards for vocabulary about family members, party/celebration words and restaurant vocabulary. We also reviewed grammar topics in those units such as possessive pronouns, the verbs tener, venir and traer."
"We completed the remainder of chapter 3 today. The student is working on chapter 4 for our next session. Her overall skills continue to be strong."
"The student and I reviewed the date, the week and the tongue twister today and I combined the review with the new, so that way he can practice the old material while learning the new thing at the same time. Today's new vocab was: do, go, not much, work, and the new phrases were: Is today Monday? Tomorrow is what day? What did you do yesterday? I went to work, I'll go to Florida on Sunday, Where are you? The homework is to continue practice the tongue twister and counting the Disney characters."
"The student did very well on last Friday's exam and would love to improve his vocabulary capacity. He is very good with recognizing symbols (Chinese radicals), and he understands the structure of characters. We are still trying different methods to help him to memorize complex characters and also focus on improving his test scores. He is very good at translating, both English into Chinese and Chinese into English."
