Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In what I believe might have been our last session, the student and I continued working towards his final exam materials. We worked from some handouts his teacher had provided. At first, we were off to a very rocky start with grammar. He had an extremely difficult time differentiating and constructing the imperfect, conditional, and future tenses. This is probably because the testing format was very mechanical, and without any context from a whole sentence. However, he seemed to find a way that worked for him, and the rest of the session went pretty smoothly as we discussed some earlier issues of the subjonctif vs. indicatif. I know the student will do so well on his exam. Please email me and let me know how he does!"
"During our session we worked on the student's final project. He has to make a slideshow presentation from the perspective of a biologist talking about different animals he has observed. We spent the session working on a rough draft. He had to write at least 20 sentences and use vocabulary from the text book and specific verb tenses."
"Today we got several assignments completed. We finished two quizzes, and completed 3-4 longer writing assignments. We're starting to become more productive during our sessions and the student is making a lot of progress in her French course."
