Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I went through the impersonal/passive "se" packet that her teacher had made, and did some practice. Then, we spent a lot of time going through Psalm 23, which she has to recite. We worked on translating it, and then talked about strategies for memorization."
"We reviewed the student's homework and the three ways to state the past tense: the plus cero perfect, the preterito perfecto, and "acabar"+"de"+infinitive. We then reviewed last week's vocabulary relating to the household. His homework is to complete a crossword puzzle."
"In this session we prepared for the student's oral exam final. We worked on memorizing his short Spanish presentation by breaking it up into pieces and working on a few sentences at a time. We also worked on the question/answer section by rehearsing responses to questions that his teacher might ask. The student progressed nicely with his memorization. I encouraged him to continue studying before his oral exam on Monday to make sure both components are committed to memory."
