Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, we first warmed up with "five chess." I checked the homework I gave him. He improved on the "4 tones" exercise, and we practiced the Pinyin chart. Then, we did a few Pinyin exercises, and we also did all the flashcards and reviewed all of the materials from the previous session. The student made good progress compared to the last session. We reviewed some grammar and common phrases. We reviewed all the major sentence structures and vocab from those 2 lessons. I also give him more insight on how to study more effectively by using flashcards (how to self test and select the cards). At the end, we previewed the content from the lesson 3."
"We practiced flashcards. The student remembered 80% of the vocabulary. Starting next session, we will focus vocabulary for the assessment test. We will also practice daily conversation which can improve her speaking."
"We practiced numbers, food conversations, and how to use numbers for money purposes. The student was struggling with his pronunciation of Chinese tones. He was excited about the lesson plan I provided for this lesson. We did a lot of role play to make sure he got a lot of practice. It looks like the student enjoys learning Chinese."
"We reviewed "self-introduction" and added more content for this part. We had a lot of fun in figuring out the meaning of the student's Chinese names. We practiced spelling and pronunciation of natural elements such as fire, water, sun, and moon. She needs to revise all the content above, and next time, we are going to move to a new lesson."
"We reviewed all Pinyin and practiced reading the syllabus, reviewed the vocabulary in Lesson 1 and Lesson 2, reviewed basic greeting and goodbye, basic class expressions, numbers 0 to 10, learned some family member words, and I assigned some review and practice."
"We reviewed and practiced writing almost a hundred characters, including categories for objects, colors, animals, and foods. I encouraged the student to use Chinese as much as possible during class. I gave him one sheet to practice writing characters as homework."
