Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student showed me the grammar book that is used in class. We reviewed present tense conjugations of "er", "re" and "ir" verbs. We also reviewed the verbs: "Mettre and remettre." The verb: to hope in French has accent changes that were practiced. I taught question inversion in French. I gave her dictation in French and corrected her spelling. For homework, she is going to make flashcards with subject pronouns and regular verbs from the verb lists in her French textbook. She tells me that my teaching is helping her to improve. I did notice improvement."
"The student and I translated and answered questions for 2 readings from his Bon Voyage textbook. He highlighted all words/phrases he didn't understand from a separate copy I made in order to aid in his understanding. He answered comprehension and true and false questions using his understanding of the text from the textbook. We went over forming questions in French and question words. We also did practice from the book (grammar exercise) and a worksheet that I printed for him using an online resource and a textbook I own."
"First session, meet and greet. The student says she struggles with speaking the language primarily and is best at writing. We went over a few simple phrases. Her pronunciation is very good, she just has trouble producing a response fast enough. Reviewed how to count 1-100, gave her a homework assignment of writing down 5 people's telephone numbers in French style."
"This session, we continued going over the student's summer homework. We listened to the song assigned by her teacher to review last week's material before moving on to the next question. We focused on the term "international" and her definition. We discussed French and American culture in order to work on a definition, and her definition evolved throughout the discussion. She took notes in order to be prepared to discuss her definition in class once school starts."
"This was our first lesson together. We learned the alphabet, articles, subject pronouns, and then we went over the verb etre."
"This was our first lesson. The student explained what the test will consist of. We brainstormed on ideas to study for it. He also showed me his notes in French from that day, and we corrected a written exercise that he had completed. I had a conversation with his mom about figuring out the best days and times to tutor her son."
