Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session we did a quick review of -ar verbs. He worked on a few exercises to practice the conjugations. Also, we started to work on the upcoming chapter, which is on food. His assignment is to study the -ar verbs and the vocabulary he has learned in this chapter."
"Today we reviewed the worksheet for 'ser y estar', introduced additional descriptors (a veces, siempre, nunca, etc), and practiced the formation of sentences through photos. This lesson, I introduced the verb 'tener'; we conjugated and briefly went through new vocab to use the verb. The student has a great memory and picks up concepts easily! For next lesson, we will do more practice incorporating all three verbs and adding numbers."
"We spent this session reviewing and checking answers on the Spanish study guide in preparation for the exam on Tuesday. We went through, page-by-page, to check for completeness and correct answers. We reviewed the grammar rules. I then had the student do a full vocabulary quiz. We will meet again on Monday for the final review. I've asked her to work on grammar in the meantime."
"She has a unit test tomorrow and said that she felt comfortable with everything except stem changers. So, we reviewed regular verbs first, and then practiced stem changers. She had a hard time at first understanding the pattern but then she really got it. By the end she was doing great, she just needs to practice a little more before her test. I was glad to hear she got an 86 on her last quiz! She seems to be improving well and hopefully catching up."
"Spanish relative names were covered as well as adjectives of Spanish words. The student was not struggling and did her best. She had a positive attitude. Strategies explained were how to differentiate a female from male in Spanish spelling. I did not leave them with extra practice. I saw scores and grades to note progress as we finished more homework. I have no concerns, the student did well."
"The session went very well, after a few difficulties at the beginning. We worked on the "stem change verbs," i-ie, e-i, o-ue. He had two pages of exercises, so we did those, and I explained how those verbs change and where they do not change."
