Session Summaries by Languages Tutors

Mission Viejo, CA Languages tutoring
The focus for today's session was to revisit topics related to school, classes in school, and things that you need in your backpack, all combined with the verb tener = to have, and tener que = to have to. The students translated a number of sentences as a review of the vocabulary including describing their likes and dislikes with regard to the classes, what they have to do, and the time that they have the classes. We reviewed a number of scenarios based on the situation that was presented to them and they were able to translate and create conversations. I also wanted them to use different subject pronouns to practice the verb tener as we reviewed. The session ended with the students practicing the topics and scenarios provided to them, and they did a good job. The students have written in their journals since our last meeting, and will continue to write notes in their journals going forward.

We studied relative pronouns and their different uses in French. The student needed help with the relative pronouns that were used solely as indirect object. I used the questioning strategy so he can learn to identify which functions each relative pronoun fulfills in the sentence, so he can come up with the right one. Always question the verb if you want to find your subject or object. He is an easy student. He acquires new notions really fast.

The student did absolutely terrific today! We continued our translation of Augustus' Res Gestae, which he handled well. I gave him an impromptu, quick-and-dirty lesson in the indirect statement, in case it shows up on the final, though it was not taught in class.

We began translating the first book of the Aeneid. It is pretty advanced Latin, though, and I think the student found it really boring. I will look around for some other texts that might hold his interest a bit better.

The student and I talked specifically about indicative vs. subjunctive mood, and then choosing the appropriate verb tense. We also talked about how to write out numbers and dates, and also choosing between the preterite and imperfect tenses. We reviewed her class notes and did two worksheets together to review indicative vs. subjunctive and preterite vs. imperfect. She has a good grasp on the rules for choosing between verb moods and tenses, and is able to apply them well in each sentence. She was not confident at first, but soon saw that she remembered a lot of what she learned in class and could use it correctly. We talked about using elimination as a strategy for taking multiple-choice tests. She is a patient student, and I think she will do very well on her upcoming exam.

We covered regular AR, ER, and IR present tense indicative verb conjugation. We also reviewed the preterite and imperfect tenses. We briefly touched on the subjunctive and imperative. The student needed help remembering which verb tense to use. I feel that he understands and knows a lot, but is not very confident about Spanish. I used flash cards to quiz him on verb meanings and conjugation. I also told him to always go with what he knows when answering test questions. I advised him to memorize the irregular verbs that he will be expected to know on the final. I believe that I can make it less stressful and more organized for him.
