Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student has a quiz on new vocabulary. We used flash cards to study the words. We also used a past exam and practiced his reading comprehension skills as well as different practice worksheets to practice the preterite and the imperfect."
"I explained the futuro tense in order to clarify what they learned in the student's class. He seemed to understand it more clearly this time. We focused mainly on the vocab, but he needs to continue to study the verbs and review the rest of it for the quiz this week. As far as the grammar goes, I think we will work on more in depth exercises next session."
"The student worked on some extra practice with the pluscuamperfecto-- we did some translations, making a point to correlate this tense to the past perfect tense in English, since the uses and structures of both tenses are quite similar. We also covered the 2 chapters from a novella in Spanish that his class is reading, looking at vocabulary and examples of the pluscuamperfecto in particular. He seemed comfortable and confident with the material, with evident enjoyment in working with the novella. He demonstrated excellent reading strategies, highlighting and underlining vocabulary and ordering important events."
