Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed the subjunctive, indicative, commands, and Ch. 5 vocab. The student wanted me to continue to help him review with practice questions/sentences that were similar to what would be on his upcoming vocabulary and grammar quizzes. He seemed happy with his process and mastery of the material."
"Today the student and I reviewed and practiced the use of vocabulary words about the environment and climate. We then practiced when to use subjunctive in negative expressions. Later we practiced the future tense. She worked extremely hard today and I was extremely impressed with her ability to memorize the vocab...she and I reviewed the list together at least 5 times today. Practice makes perfect!"
"We covered her blog assignments and test practice. She struggles with the length of her assignments and their complexity. We had an extensive session in which we covered grammar rules and examples for each case."
"The student had an especially difficult short story to read, so we spent most of the session on that. Afterward, I chose several sentences that illustrated some of the grammar topics we've been discussing recently (e.g., subjunctive trigger phrases)."
"Student and tutor reviewed the use of "usted" for formal commands, and practiced conversion of various verbs to the subjunctive for that purpose. Student also translated these sentences, to practice comprehension and pronunciation."
"Of the 7-episode dialogue practice for the learning of business French, three episodes were left. Therefore the session started with episode 5 which involved a conversation between the employee, Sebastien, and the Japanese client, Ms. Suzuki. The next episode involved the planned meeting while the last one was about the employee going for debriefing with his boss. Throughout the session, new vocabulary was studied as were the tenses and certain common phrases."
