Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we first warmed up with the "glass ball game" to practice saying colors and numbers, as well as learning new verbs: walk and jump. Then we reviewed the animal book to practice saying and identifying the names of animals and numbers. They liked this book very much. Finally, we moved on to their favorite part - the "Chinese for Kids app," where we reviewed the previous lesson and then learned a new lesson of identifying the words and practicing listening skills."
"We expanded the conversation we wrote last time. We made more simple sentences and two types of questions, offered the guests some drinks and gave the options, added "thank you and you're welcome" to the conversation, included "long time no see," and reviewed the usage of "also" and "please.""
"We have learned "position" and how to ask for directions in Chinese together. The student is very active and she has a positive attitude in learning. She has some difficulty in remembering some characters, which I consider natural and could be overcome by repeating more in daily life. I asked her to write down "up"\"down" etc. and to review the sentences about asking directions."
"We have reviewed previous lesson. The student did good job, he remembered 80% of the words we have learned. This lesson, we keep learning new words. He already remembered most of them at the class, so he just needs to practice at home to make sure he won't forget them. Next class I will teach him writing."
"We help the student prepare for a quiz. We went over a list of phrases and their usages that will be in the quiz. We also used it to practice his speaking and listening skills. I asked him to record the session so that he can use it to practice later. He is a fun young man. I can really feel his motivation. He stated that he is getting good grades so far."
"We learned a construction that functions like "except" and dealt a little bit with extensions of previous grammar. The student progress continues at a steady pace. His character writing has improved, as has his handling of the tones."
