Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we spent most of time on checking and correcting the mistakes they made on the exam and practicing the sentences. They rewrote all 10 sentences, and we fixed grammar and mistakes one by one. I explained some customs on expressing certain phrases. Today's only new vocab was play. I left them an assignment to write a one-page essay in Chinese in any topic of their choice, using all the vocab we've learnt so far. Great job in first semester!"
"The student did excellent on the homework on writing the Chinese characters for sheep, bird, age, name, hundred, and thousand. She has gained a good knowledge on how to write the strokes. We continued to work on learning the pronunciations and written characters for family members, including mom, dad, older/ younger sister, older/ younger brother, grandpa, and grandma. For homework, she will write each character twice. Next, we did textbook activities on conversing about family in Chinese and identifying people from the family tree in Chinese. We finished chapter 2 and began working on chapter 3 about learning the days of the week, month, and year in Chinese."
"The student is very smart and he is so excited about Chinese. Now he knows more Chinese vocabulary and some short phrases. Today we talked about some new vocabulary and some short phrases, and he is even able to say the long sentences. He is doing great. I am so glad to see that. In a word, the lesson was great."
