Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Yesterday, the student and I got through the first module of his course. We reviewed grocery store items, clothing items, numbers through ten thousand, and some verbs that went along with all of that. We did two assignments that were very interactive. I told him he needs to take the unit test before I see him again and then we will begin the next unit."
"We started reviewing the first chapter of the student's mathematics book, distinguishing between odd and even numbers and tens and ones. Then we read a short story in Spanish. He reads very well."
"On this session I introduced the student to vocabulary related to fruits. We went over the pronunciation of each word and their meaning in English and Spanish. Since she is already familiar with colors and sizes in Spanish I asked her to describe each fruit in Spanish telling me their color and how big or small they were. She was able to speak in complete sentences when describing different fruits. Upon the completion of this activity we went over a reading in Spanish."
"We reviewed the student's vocabulary homework, added and practiced new vocabulary through conversation practice, and did a reading comprehension exercise that solidified and added to her vocabulary. I asked her to memorize the new vocabulary words that we covered today. I have no concerns at this point. She is picking up the material and reported being able to understand some Spanish she saw on television."
"The students and I were excited to start their session this week. We began with briefly reviewing colors, along with practicing counting (up to 20) in Spanish. Moreover, we kept learning more vocabulary words for animals. Both kids are good at picking up Spanish, but one of the students showed impressive aptitude during this specific session; she's already begun to say sentences. Overall, the session went very well, and we'll be continuing next week."
"We reviewed characters first, and then we practiced reading the student's script without Pinyin. She did a very good job on both. She had worked very hard learning and memorizing them at home. We then reviewed some simple phrases and basic grammar concepts used in the conversation. We decided to move on to vocabulary emotion section to learn/review how to express one's feelings, since that is related to the conversation we just learned and to what she learned before."
