Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"On this session with the student we practiced for a quiz she will have next Friday using expressions with the verbs "ETRE" and "AVOIR." For this quiz, she also had to practice to translate sentences from French to English. I gave her more sentences to translate with new vocabulary inside these sentences to see if she could guess. The student also worked on an assignment she had to do about preparing a birthday party using specific vocabulary. We agreed that for our next session, we will study the future tense, something new for her, but that I think it would be good to do in advance for her French class."
"Since the student has a French quiz this Tuesday, we spent the majority of our time practicing with the vocabulary and grammar concepts that will be on the quiz. These include: vocabulary pertaining to birthday and other celebrations and holidays, the passe compose with both helping verbs, and negative expressions (ne...pas, ne...jamais, ne personne, etc.)."
"Student one didn't have any books or papers from class, so they went over verbs (-er, -re and -ir verbs). They also did drills and exercises with those using FRENCH THREE YEARS text. With student two, they reviewed his French from class. They went over future tense and passe compose."
"The class started with us reviewing the homework I gave him last week. He conjugated the 16 moving verbs that require the verb "tre. " We also worked on his school homework and studied the various verbs that he's learning this week. He understands a great deal of the material and worked well. I gave him homework for next week, which consists of conjugating 24 action verbs."
"The concepts I covered specifically where when and how to use "savoir" or "connaitre," and when and how to use which "pronoms." She was very enthusiastic toward the material that was reviewed."
"The student and I checked her spelling and punctuation on her homework and did memorization drills for days of the week, months of the year, and seasons. She also brought up that she had forgotten how to do negative sentences, so we did a series of Q&A format sentences that allowed her to write out answers in the negative."
