Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student told me about her regular activities on the weekends using the present indicative tense, and what her life will look like in 10 years using the future tense. She is becoming a little bit more fluid when she speaks. I told her that I would have her do variations of this exercise often in the future so that she can become progressively more fluid. We then moved on to reviewing the various rules that apply to "Por vs. Para," along with some examples. For homework I asked her to review these rules."
"The student spent the session working on her online Spanish homework on present progressive/gerund phrases in Spanish. She got increasingly better and better at the conjugations. It took some time for her to write out sentences in Spanish, but with more and more practice, I am confident that it will come much easier to her."
"Today, The student and I began by using numbers and talking about calendar dates. Then we practiced vocabulary related to food and restaurants. He has an in-class presentation simulating a restaurant interaction. We went through the script in detail talking about vocabulary and pronunciation. After that we looked at different verb conjugations and practiced the various forms. We also used some older worksheets from his class to review the conjugations with the vocab for the unit on food. Overall, the session went very well, and he was prepared to study for quizzes in his other classes for tomorrow."
"I brought reading material in Spanish about the business culture in Mexico. It was helpful since the student could identify new vocabulary as well as receive information that may be useful for his work. We also went over Idioms in Spanish using the verb "estar.""
"Today we discussed the student's upcoming English assignments and spent the rest of the session going over his vocabulary for his test on Wednesday. I quizzed him with the English words and had him write down the Spanish words. For the words he missed, I had him use them in a sentence. By the end of the session, he had each word memorized. He is in good shape for his quiz."
"This session served as a review for the student's upcoming exam. He has been studying for the past couple of days, and I feel he will do a great job on his test. We mainly went over last-minute questions and other things that were confusing him."
