Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We talked today about the trip she had last weekend, so she practiced Spanish speaking, and conversation (listening understanding). We need to continue practicing the verbal conjugations in several tenses. She is going to watch the movie "Hombre mirando al sudeste". Her pronunciation is excellent."
"The student is doing very well. His comprehension is great! He needs to read a bit more, but he has a sound understanding of the material. We were a bit more relaxed on some of the course work because we covered all of the vocabulary and grammar but we are reviewing literature and culture, which has shown to be a bit more challenging. All in all, the student is right on track!"
"Today we covered the preterite and the imperfect. We discussed the different rules for both. I asked the student to create different sentences using the preterite and the imperfect. He was able to create the sentences and only made minor mistakes. He understands how to create sentences in each form, which is great."
"Today, the student and I reviewed future tenses, including Ir + a + infinitive as well as the conditional tense. We worked through a few practice assignments, discussed irregular verbs, and went over class notes. Afterwards, we went through any questions he had regarding the material, and he felt pretty good about taking the quizzes on this chapter. We had a good session, and he plans on reviewing the irregular verbs for irregular conditional and future tense verbs on his own."
"Today, the student and I worked on reading passages and deciphering the meaning of the text. The prompts called for him to evaluate whether the passage was a fable or a legend, and to support his answers. He was also asked to write a short description of the life his mother and father had in their original homelands. He is doing well and is incorporating new knowledge into his work."
"We continued to practice speaking. The student continues to improve in her speech and needs to look up vocabulary less than before. She also continues to find alternate ways of saying things when she gets stuck, which is a great way to develop diversity of expression when mastering a language."
