Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We built up more vocabulary and learned about professions in Spanish, and practiced making up new sentences. We practiced using flashcards with pictures of common things. We practice our first reading comprehension."
"Today the student and I worked on her preterite irregular verbs again. Her progress has really shown. She's able to begin doing the conjugations in her head and her grasp of the grammar concept grows more and more each session. I brought her a conjugation practice worksheet and she was able to complete it perfectly. We then revisited reflexive verbs and did practice worksheets. Her grasp of this concept is growing more and more."
"Today went really well! We started out with a review game to remember emotional expressions then moved into a review of different types of clothing. We then learned some different "morning routine" verbs, which was an introduction to reflexive verbs. We ended the session by practicing those verbs in different games and contexts. I left them with a review worksheet and a page in their workbook to practice."
"Today, the student and I completed lesson 21. We started with our normal warm-up conversation, and we reviewed the date, the time, days of the week, months, birthdate, weather, and incorporated additional phrases with the present perfect tense. We focused the rest of the lesson again on reviewing reflexive verbs and the present perfect tense. We reviewed the auxiliary verb haber, and I asked her to tell me what she did during the day incorporating the reflexive verbs. We spent time reviewing the most common irregular past participles in Spanish and then went into our practice questions where we utilized the new grammar we covered. We did a small introduction to the future tense today, which we will cover in more detail in future lessons. We are now working on having her become more comfortable speaking on her own instead of just responding to questions and having her come up with her own conversation topics and questions."
"Today, the student and I worked on pronunciation, conjugation, and vocabulary. Her attitude was very positive."
"Today, the student and I worked on review of definite articles and noun/ adjective agreement, basic conversation, verbs in present tense, numbers, days, months, and seasons. His grammar knowledge is good. He was cooperative and eager to practice. We did a lot of oral practicing. I am going to email him some further practice sheets."
