Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed all vocabulary words from this semester including adjectives and activities, school rules and supplies, and chores and housework. The student felt that his oral presentation went well today, and will complete this semester of Spanish 2 tomorrow with the multiple choice exam. We will meet again in January when school starts again."
"The student's teacher gave him a packet of practice worksheets to prep for the final and we worked through those together. I briefly introduced "por y para" and indirect objects. He is doing much better with conjunctions. The more he studies and memories, the better he will do on the exam. The tutoring sessions give him the structure and support he needs to do that. He is thinking very logically about grammar and really wants to learn. He's doing great!"
"Today we continued work on understanding reflexive verbs and their usage and also on the project/presentation the student has due on Friday. We were able to also discuss some useful phrases for his trip!"
"We covered composition and essay writing using Spanish vocabulary and the preterite conjugation form in preparation for the student's final exam. We reviewed proper vocabulary, syntax, and verb conjugation in writing. I left the student with a list reminding the student of irregular verbs in the preterite form."
"The student and I reviewed the topics that would appear on her midterm this week. We covered the grammar topics of Chp. 1,2,3 in her textbook (por v. para, demonstratives, present v. preterit). She asked questions and is a great responsive student."
"At the beginning the students had a dictation test. I let them write about 50 characters. They did a pretty good job. We read again three small books with objects based on color. We went through all related vocabulary. We continued to learn lesson 8 part 2 in textbook 1B. We learned new words while reading the texts. We went through 50 flashcards. I encouraged them to use Chinese as much as possible during the class. I gave them each one sheet to practice writing characters as homework. We watched on a famous Aesop fable story "Hare and Turtle," then I asked them questions regarding the story. I asked them several questions after the video to make sure they really comprehended the story."
