Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We began by reviewing the conjugations and usage of several verbs, including 'ser', 'estar', and 'poder'. We then discussed how to use 'gustar', introducing the concept of indirect object pronouns and how to use 'guastaria'. We completed several exercises on the use of 'ir' and ended the session with a bit of conversational practice."
"Today the student and I reviewed the organization of her materials and grammar. We went over methods to simplify her notebooks and binders. We also created index cards and in the process reviewed Ser y Estar and preterite conjugation for both irregular and regular verbs. We used this activity to help clarify grammatical tenses and reviewed how reflexive verbs are used in the present and preterite tense. Her understanding for both mechanics and concept of reflexive verbs is improving. I am very much looking forward to seeing her progress next week!"
"Today we went over animal vocabulary. I am starting to implement a Spanish question period every session where I ask them a few questions about their day/week/weekend in Spanish to start having a conversation. We worked on our Spanish vocabulary then reviewed some of the verbs that we know. I also taught them numbers up to one hundred before we played our large review game to finish the session. I left them with a worksheet to practice animal vocab and some questions/answers."
