Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session we did a quick review of -AR verbs. He worked on a few exercises to practice the conjugations. Also, we started to work on the upcoming chapter, which is on 'Food'. The student's assignment is to study the -ar verbs and the vocabulary we have learned in this chapter."
"The student and I reviewed what he has been learning in his Spanish class. He has been given a lot of information. I was able to explain to him parts of speech, conjugation of verbs, and other basics. He had an assignment to write a paragraph about a picture in his text book. Working together, we were able to organize his ideas and I helped him with his grammar and vocabulary."
"Today the student and I went over possessive adjectives in Spanish. We wrote out notes and he seemed to understand and do very well with the practice problems I wrote out for him. He seems to really be getting a hold of the language. His father said he received a B on his last exam - a great improvement! I think he will really continue to improve as we work together."
"We finished reviewing the subjunctive. I was pleased with the student's effort and progress. No scores or grades; he has a final exam on Wednesday. He struggles with vocabulary, knowing his grammar tenses, and applying his understanding to exercises. I am emailing him a video and expect him to take notes and complete his worksheet by next session."
"We started out the session looking at some of the additional flash cards that I made for the student. I asked him if the set up of them was working out okay, and he said they've been very helpful. I know he refers to them a lot while studying, and it shows through his improvement. We then started working with the book exercises. Now that the material has gotten a bit more challenging, I feel that we need to start working with some outside resources for additional practice. I'm hoping to find some helpful worksheets online, and bring them to our session next week. We worked through some very good (and challenging) paragraphs, that I suggested he go over at home a few times. It went back and forth with present tense to past tense, so it'll be good to go over it repeatedly so that he sees the patterns in the conjugations."
"We reviewed the dative and accusative case and the student did a practice test on it. Furthermore we practiced prepositions and reviewed time expressions. For next time we want to do an exercise on prepositions and how to build the perfect tense."
