Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The session went very well. The student worked on her homework (command form of the verbs, familiar and polite). I am sending her a chart with the polite form of irregular verbs, to help her better understanding the command of the verbs."
"The student and I went over his homework assignment which was pages 11-12 in his workbook, filling in blank answers with conjugated verbs in the preterit form. I had him, per usual, read the instructions and sentences out loud in Spanish, followed by its English translation, and then the correct verb (you can choose from 2 different verbs) along with the correct conjugation. We then went over the answers, and I had him correct the ones he got wrong and ensured that he understood why he got them wrong."
"The student and I went over the topics for his next test. We studied the difference between preterite and imperfect, reflexive verbs, and present progressive. We also solved some exercises from his workbook."
"The student didn't have much homework (and no Spanish homework) to go over today, and we decided that Tuesdays will probably be a better day to actually work on Spanish together. I will confirm this with his mother later this week. We did prepare for an English in-class essay he needs to write on a quote from his book. Then, we worked on his worksheet about acid rain in science. We attempted to figure out the math problems he had left. Then we finished some new vocabulary from his English workbook."
"The student had no homework, so we spent the lesson playing our adapted version of Catch Phrase with her new vocabulary words. She got teacher feedback expressing the desire to help her achieve a greater level of comfortability speaking, which our conversation practice will help her do."
"The student is taking Spanish 3 and wanted help with studying for an exam that covers the preterit v. imperfect tenses. We practiced lots of examples, including conjugation, meaning, prompts, and context."
