Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we started with practicing using classifiers to describe the position of objects. I used random objects within my reach and pictures for practice. The student did well with using the correct classifier. I then taught her a bunch of signs related to feelings. The student worked hard and overall this session went really well."
"We first had our routine French conversation to practice different vocabulary, fluidity and verb conjugations. We then learned a new verb tense, the futur anterieur, learning the rules and using fill-in-the-blank sentences to practice. Following this exercise, we started object pronoun placement and did some practice phrases as well. The student was left with knowing the material that we are going to cover next week, and his attitude is always great towards learning French!"
"This session focused on the play (Le Dindon by Georges Feydeau) that we are using to help the student reach the CEF-L A2 level as soon as possible. As we were broaching the notion of manners in a French setting, we also took some time to discuss French table manners and etiquette as well as wine tasting."
"We started the session by finishing the first chapter of Les Recres du petit Nicolas. Then we worked on grammar for the majority of the session, reviewing articles, and the pronouns y and en. Then I quizzed the student on a couple verb conjugations and we went over the conjugations of vouloir, pouvoir, and devoir. We ended the session by listening to a couple of songs."
"Today, I helped the student practice for her vocab test tomorrow. I started by testing her knowledge of the words by reciting their English meaning. We then went through the entire list, and she wrote down each word's definitions in French. I then tested her one final time using the French definitions."
"The student wants to perfect her conversational French, so for our first meeting we agreed to meet in a French coffee shop near her house. As soon as we sat down, we started speaking French and got to know each other. Whenever she mispronounced a word or made a grammar error, which only happened a couple of times, I would politely correct her. She finds it more natural to simply have a conversation with one another for her to practice her French, so we agreed we would do so for our weekly sessions."
