Session Summaries by French Tutors

New Bedford, MA French tutoring
We covered vocabulary dealing with professions. In addition, we continued our work on the key auxiliary verbs "etre and avoir." We also discussed how to say where someone is from using adjectives and the verb "venir" (to come). What is most important for the student at this point is to get lots of practice. He is doing a great job at recognizing verbs and his guesses are improving, but eventually the goal is for him to be able to produce vocabulary and conjugate verbs with 100% accuracy. I have suggested that he invest in a French verb book and to download two foreign language apps.

Today we started by talking about how the student is doing in his French class, and I was thrilled to hear that he has gotten all A's on his vocabulary quizzes (including several 100's!) since we started our tutoring sessions. Next, he went through the review PowerPoint I made and got every answer correctly. Since he clearly has a good grasp on last week's vocabulary, which was mainly weather/ seasons-related terminology, we decided it would be best to dedicate the rest of the session to his upcoming chapter, which is about "La Vie Quotidienne" (daily life). I brought a new textbook with me today, since he has expressed that his textbook from school doesn't particularly appeal to him. As an introduction to "La Vie Quotidienne" vocabulary, I asked him to read a page aloud from his new book and then we discussed it for a few minutes (what he understood, what vocabulary was new to him, etc.). I then adapted an exercise from the book to include his vocab list from this week, and he completed it while I talked him through what the new words meant, how they should be used in context, pronunciation, etc. Like last week, we made flashcards for every vocabulary word, adding a personal "clue", such as short sentences and pictures, to each one. We then went through them (French to English and vice versa) a few times. By the end of the session, the student could easily recall every word on his list! I am really happy with how quickly he is picking up new vocabulary, and is able to recall most of them week to week. His confidence and willingness to put in the effort to do well in this class continue to impress me, and are a huge part of what makes our sessions successful.

The student and I worked on correcting all the errors of a quiz he had in class. We reviewed the verb prendre/to take and its conjugated forms. He seems to have difficulty with the partitive (used when you can't really count a real portion of something/to indicate some of an indefinite whole) and definite/indefinite articles. We also reviewed the -ir ending verbs such as partir/to leave, dormir/to sleep, sentir/to smell and feel, sortir/to exit. He needs to practice more of his conjugations to get more familiar with the endings, but also in terms of understanding how the conjugated forms are used in the context of a sentence with blanks where you have to fill in the proper conjugated form (with names, etc.).

The student is making very rapid progress. Today, I worked with him on reviewing the conjugations of re verbs, the meaning of the verb vocabulary that had been covered during the last session, how to give directions, as well as possessive adjectives. I also introduced, ce, cet, cette, and ces, which the student understood quickly, and I also reviewed how to make adjectives agree with the objects they are describing. This review encompassed much of all vocabulary covered to date.

The student did an Internet activity on a French-speaking country today. I asked her to please review and finish all the homework pertaining to chapter 1 in her textbook. She is also to make sure to memorize all of the expressions with the verb avoir. For Chapter 2 in Me Voici, she is to redo the exercise on the possessive adjectives that we did together. I asked her to take the time to visualize the situation and figure out who is talking and about who or what.

Today we discussed the grammatical structure of direct object pronouns, indirect object pronouns, and adverbs, along with extended discussion of the conjugations of verbs in present tense, past tense, and subjunctive mood. We went through using multiple pronouns in a sentence and various negations like simple negation as well as "never," "not yet," and related expressions. The student struggled mostly with the memorization of which conjugations are appropriate at the right time. But it would not be fair to say his struggles are large or daunting - he has a good grasp of the material and most conjugations he is able to deliver immediately or almost immediately, and much of the rest he recalls with a minimum of prompting. His attitude was business-like and straightforward, which made for a good and efficient use of our time.
