Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, the student and I went over some new vocabulary words. She learned "die Schulsachen", or "the school / classroom items," as well as "die Zahlen," and "the numbers." We went over die Schulsachen first as I said them out loud and she repeated. Then, we started with die Zahlen and did 0-5, 5-10, 10-15 and 15-20. She seems to have improved after repeatedly saying the words out loud in German. "
"We continued learning more Kanji. We have completed another 40 more Kanji and concluded with Japanese 1st grader's Kanji list. We will still review more and make sure the student will be more comfortable with all 80 Kanji. He did very well again. Thank you for working hard!"
"Reviewed hiragana that the student tends to forget. Reviewed hiragana line N. Reviewed state-of-being. Introduced new vocabulary (tomodachi, gakusei, otona, kodomo, un, uun, hai, and iie). Introduced the negative conjugation of the state-of-being."
"The student and I reviewed her homework, which was to memorize a list of vocabulary words and phrases. She did a good job of memorizing many of these. We learned many new vocabulary words, and her homework for this week is to memorize them. We also went over pronunciation of the hiragana alphabet in more detail. She was able to correctly produce a few simple sentences. She continues to impress me with her naturally good pronunciation."
"The student did well this week! We reviewed many of our previous topics such as colors, weather, days of the week, and likes/dislikes. We practiced sentences using "I want to" and "minutes/hours by car," learning other vocab words along the way. We also practiced comparing sentences such as "which _____ do you like?" Her homework is to look over/study what we practiced in preparation for the review next week."
"The student has learned over 320 Kanji and seems more comfortable speaking. We went over a few new vocabulary words today. She has a lot more comfort in listening comprehension. She is going to take her placement test in September."
