Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered what we had left of the subjunctive mood. The student was attentive and ready to learn. I asked him to see if he could come up with one or more examples using verbs from any of the groups. He was able to respond to questions 90% of the time. He is an intelligent student."
"The student and I began the session with a review of new notes she had taken in class on the history of French fairy tales. She then practiced her lines for an upcoming oral presentation in class. We then worked through an exercise based on the literary vocabulary she has been using in this unit. We then reviewed the construction "si + imparfait--->conditionnel" as a jumping off point for more conversation in French. Next, we spent some time reviewing verb conjugations (I definitely see improvement in that area!), followed by some listening comprehension work. Before we ended, she rehearsed her lines again. The student is a joy to work with!"
"We went over the transition words, new vocabularies and worked on some oral practice. The student is ready to learn and show improvement. I gave her homework and she was happy to have homework. I try to make the session as fun as possible so that she can feel comfortable."
"In this session, the student and I got caught up with each other and looked at some of the grammar/vocab on her quiz tomorrow, with a focus on demonstrative adjectives and pronouns. We also looked at a quote from the movie "Laurence Anyways" (which we have both seen) to review relative pronouns qui vs. que."
"The student and I covered the use and rules of and the differentiation between que/ qui/ dont, lequel/ laquelle/ duquel/ auquel, and all related variants thereof, a topic with which she had previously been struggling. She is an incredibly passionate student whose desire to master the material is both evident and awesome. We went over a wealth of practice problems, which we analyzed to enhance comprehension. By the end of our two hour session, we had some excellent improvement! She and I will continue to work on these topics, and I can't wait to see how she does on her test tomorrow. It was a really productive session, and I'm glad I was able to help! A+ job!"
"The student and I reviewed the structure of a persuasive essay for French 4, aligned to the AP format with three primary sources referenced as evidence. We then reviewed her homework assignments from the textbook on reading comprehension questions. She practiced reading aloud and we went through the reading to use correct clues to decipher unknown words."
