Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I studied his next set of vocabulary words for the coming week. We continue to speak in Spanish as much as possible in order to improve his fluency. We have also worked on reading comprehension skills. He has improved in recent weeks and I look forward to his continued progress."
"First, the student and I did some more subjunctive paragraph exercises. We focused on what hints can be found in paragraphs that indicate what form of the subjunctive to use. She seemed to be getting better with this topic. Next, she and I spent a significant amount of time reviewing a paper that she has to turn in for class today. When she brought the paper to me, it was of good quality but had some grammatical errors in it. We worked through these errors and we talked about why they were made and how to prevent them in the future. We also discussed how writing things first in Spanish, rather than writing them in English and then translating, is a better method for writing in Spanish."
"We went over ser vs. estar, preterite vs. imperfect, words that change between each, indirect and direct object pronouns, and uses of "a". She understood it well. She knew or had learned most of the material but wanted to review and get more information to improve written and oral fluency. We went over previous mistakes she made on worksheets, and she seemed to understand the right answers."
"We worked on the verbs "ser" and :estar" and practiced in exercises. We also watched the video about the city of San Juan in Puerto Rico. We answered the questions about the video and the vocabulary."
"Today we reviewed the student's chapter 1 test. We also did practice worksheets on Preterite and Preterite vs Imperfect. She agreed to practice her Spanish for 30 minutes each day, and I will send her a suggested daily study guide."
"The student and I reviewed our previous sessions. He also learned to write a couple of new characters. At the end of the lesson, he shared with me that he was passionate about this card game and we learned some words on card games."
