Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student did rather well today. He did well with today's new material, the perfect tense active voice. He demonstrated good command of this important point of Latin grammar. Thanks for your hard work today."
"The student is starting to tackle the subjunctive voice. We worked on forms specifically, because there are a lot of similarities between the active and passive subjunctive endings. These can be confusing if you don't sit down and take some time to memorize the patterns. After that, we started to figure out schedules for her final exam and discussed the material we'll need to cover."
"We went over the Annulus Aegyptus story from his book and then went over vocabulary. The student is doing a really great job translating, and thoroughly understands the grammar. His biggest issue is remembering vocabulary, so I always make sure to put earnest time into going over the vocabulary and giving him words we get in English from these words, as well as relationships between words (for example, the word for friend and enemy are very similar). I am very pleased with his progress. Keep up the great work!"
"We thoroughly reviewed the textbook's chapter 10 vocabulary, and the student will be ready for the upcoming quiz. We then delved into chapter 11, reading through the introductory "cartoons", and the first story. For the first look, the student translated extremely well!"
"The student and I are continuing to follow his textbook units, and we discussed chapter 6 today. The book introduced interrogative pronouns/adjectives, as well as the third declension of neuter nouns. We focused mainly on the interrogatives, and did some practice translations from the book."
"Today, we did a general review of various basic concepts, including declension endings, tense, conjugating verbs, personal pronouns, degrees of adjectives, and more. The student should continue reviewing the material we covered today in addition to anything we've gone over in the past year. He should especially focus on memorizing the charts in the back of his Latin book and the basic vocab I pointed out."
