Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, the student and I completed lesson 38. We started with our normal warm-up conversation, and I provided corrections when necessary. For today's lesson, we really focused on conversation and review since our last session was more than two weeks ago. We went over preterite verbs, the present perfect, possessive adjectives, and indirect object pronouns as part of our grammar. She did very well engaging in conversation, conjugating verbs correctly, and responding to questions. For our next session, we will focus some time reviewing the differences between por/para."
"We began the lesson today by reviewing our questions for demonstrative pronouns. We used these to review the vocabulary that we had learned about animals... and later used this same phrase to ask different types of food/meat. The phonics portion of the lesson focused on the similarities between the letters 'b' and 'v' in the Spanish language. We did a listening activity to hear the differences and learned a change. The lesson ended by reviewing our numbers, and then translating these into American currency."
"We continued our lesson on subjunctive. We also reviewed formal and informal commands in both their positive and negative forms. At the end of the class, per the student's request, we watched a video in Spanish of a Dr. that works at the hospital to understand what was being said."
"We continued to work on greetings and small talk. The student is struggling with some of the more difficult parts of pronunciation but is making good progress. She is definitely enthusiastic and open to the material. I asked her to go through the flashcards we made together throughout the week."
"We corrected subject pronouns homework and practiced some prior vocabulary. It was clear that student was well-prepared. :) I added more personal identification questions. Student wrote out English, and we practiced asking and answering the questions together. I left a few sheets behind to practice old and new material."
"We covered Castilian language. Specifically, we covered his homework of the different types of communication and we reviewed all the different types of communication according to Castilian language. He was struggling more with the verbal communication than the non verbal communication."
