Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Accomplished comprehensive final review, including verb conjugation exercises, and two practice essay prompts designed to test written comprehension and execution."
"The student and I continued to review for the final tomorrow, focusing on reading comprehension. This should be our last session."
"Just had an extensive French conversation today, stopping at times to connect topics to ones we've covered in this textbook and otherwise."
"We read part of a book by Andre Gide: Symphony Pastorale. We worked on pronunciation and translating."
"We reviewed briefly the French pronunciation. Then, we spoke in French about different subjects; family, everyday life, past, travel, activities, etc."
"We covered the use of the "Gerondif mode" to construct sentences, and the student showed excellent progress through intensive practice."
"Reviewed vocabulary and homework from class, worked on pronunciation and present tense -er verb conjugation, and introduction to irregular verb etre."
"We worked on an essay for class. Our goal was to get her thinking in French instead of translating from English."
"Went through exercises on professions, set up a website account for practice, and went over stated goals."
"The student had been given a chapter to go over in her French notebook and needed some guidance with it. We tried to go through it step by step to understand what the questions meant and how to answer them so that when it came time she could complete them on her own. This took up the entire time so I am hoping that next week we can find some time to add in some conversational practice to lighten up the load and make it seem less intimidating."
"Today we reviewed the sometimes complicated method of counting in French. In addition, we went over expressing time and requesting information at a train station."
"Today we worked through the grammar concepts in Lesson 1, including complete sentences and definite articles. We reviewed some of the vocabulary from this chapter together, working on pronunciation and using them in sentences. The student has made some great progress in terms of comprehension and recognizing vocabulary. On Sunday I'll be giving her a test on Lesson 1 and we will be working through some of the cultural and linguistic information to wrap up the chapter."
