Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed topics and concepts needed for her to complete a power presentation based on assigned reading in her Spanish class. We reviewed how to do numbers all the way up to millions and did comparison and contrast focusing on proper use of the verbs ser and estar."
"We reviewed all the simple, and compound tense. We also reviewed the use of the indirect, and direct object. We practiced many exercises, and also completed homework. He is interested in learning, and put in a lot of effort. I did give him tips on how he could study conjugations."
"We studied for the student's Spanish test. We reviewed irregular preterit conjugations of verbs. I had him choose verbs from a word bank to complete a paragraph missing verbs. We also made flashcards to help remember the meanings of the verbs. He did great!"
"During this session, I conversed in Spanish with the student and gave her a pop quiz on reflexive verbs. She struggled with some Spanish vocabulary, so I helped her form her sentences during our conversation. She did very well on the pop quiz, with only one wrong answer due to the irregular verb conjugation. We also reviewed another way of using reflexive verbs: When something is done by accident. For homework, I asked her to read the first chapter of "El Alquimista," to search unknown vocabulary and to practice reflexive verbs with a few worksheets I sent her. We will review the subjunctive during the next session since she expressed that she has difficulty with it."
"Great job on the direct object pronouns! Keep practicing them (lo, la, los, las), as we will move on to talking about people next week. Review your vocabulary and keep adding to it. I will send you some links to give you a visual on all those Spanish holidays we talked about."
"Great session today! I never have a negative thing to say about our sessions. We spent a few minutes in the beginning practicing reading. We then practiced some grammar questions with verb conjugation. For the most part, the student remembered most of the grammar. Some different topics came up that he wasn't familiar with, so we talked about them, and I'll discuss them in further detail in the weeks to come. We spent the second half working on Spanish expressions that keep showing up in our reading. We worked through a list of about 25 of them, and he wrote sentences to practice. He will review these in the next week, and I will see what he remembers next week."
