Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The session went very well. The student had a project do next class, and we work on it. She had to write four large paragraphs about "Una experiencia inolvidable." She had to use imperfect tense on the description, past tense on specific actions, and other appropriate tense. It was a fun project."
"The student and I practiced more of our conversational Spanish speaking skills. We reviewed vocabulary and other grammatical concepts. By the end of the session, the student felt that we went over a lot! She says that the Spanish is coming back to her."
"The student and I went over a new homework assignment and unit that he has been assigned, where the theme is outdoor activities such as camping and hiking. We completed about 4 activities together where I allowed him to take the lead, and I would guide him. Afterwards, we went over the new words, and I quizzed him on them. He started off hesitant and struggled but by the end he became much better and more comfortable with the words."
"The student and I went over her area of weakness. As the session progressed, she grasped the material quickly. I encouraged her ability to have a good instinct for rules and spelling. We went over a paragraph, and I made her highlight the words and phrases that she did not know. I encouraged her to review the material for next time. I saw some notes and grades that allowed me to have a better understanding of the material she works on daily."
"The student and I went over the exercises for the first chapter of his workbook. We worked on vocabulary, "tener que + infinitive," and "ir a + infinitive." We also reviewed the difference between ser and estar. He has a great understanding of the basics of Spanish, his pronunciation is good, and we will continue to work on it as the semester progresses. Next session, we will review the rest of his workbook assignments, and we will clarify any doubts he might encounter in reviewing the textbook."
"The student and I worked on grammar rules for his class unit, about plural, forms of verbs, and feminine/ masculine verbs. We ended with picture description, so we could work on comparatives (more/ less than, as something), and discussed different things to have him speak."
