Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on a packet that the student was given for homework. It dealt with -car, -gar and -zar verbs, verbs in which i becomes y in the 3rd person (construir and leer especially,) other irregular verbs like traer, decir, querer, venir and ser, and vocabulary related to giving directions (cruzar, doblar, caminar)."
"We spent our session studying the vocabulary for the student's Spanish test tomorrow as well as working on his homework assignment. We started by looking at the vocabulary list, going over the meanings of each word and thinking of mnemonics to help remember them. We then started going through his homework packet which dealt with knowing the words and using the vocabulary to construct full sentences. We reviewed the verbs ser and estar and briefly talked about the end of the packet before our session was over. He seemed to have a better grasp of most of the words by the end of the session."
"During this session we reviewed the student's homework assignment. The assignment was a read-and-write with three parts. She did a great job reading each part and using her vocabulary list to understand what the selection was saying. Then she did a great job answering all the questions. During the last part of the session, we rehearsed the summary she had written to speak in front of her class."
