Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today I first helped the student finished her homework assignment, we did the entire Q & A sheet with the supplemental material book. Then to help her prepare for the final, I used her vocab sheet and worksheet to create many sentences and Q & A's for her to practice listening and speaking, next week she'll study vocab more so to get more familiar and fluent."
"This session, we continued to work on reviewing the student's English essay. He also had a biology exam the next day, so I helped him study. We went over the body systems and I quizzed him on all of the topics."
"In the beginning of the session Student 1 and I played with a car set. I taught him the word for street and the various types of vehicles he had with him. We also went over the colors of the pieces of road he had. We then went over numbers and Student 2 joined us. I went over 1-10 thoroughly with Student 2 and he made very nice progress, so I will open the next section with numbers."
"At the beginning we went from some pages in the exercise book to practice consonants and some double vowels that are easily confused, then we went through words in the new picture book and 'I Spy' books to practice vocabulary. We also went through 50 flashcards and extended the vocabulary to the objects in the pictures. I encouraged them to use Chinese as much as possible during class. I gave them each one sheet to practice writing characters as homework. We went through body parts words and counted numbers from 20 to 1 backwards, and 0 to 40, and 90 to 110 onwards."
"The student asked me to help him with two Chinese projects today. The first one is a presentation about his home town which he will present on Wednesday. We looked at his writing and found corresponding images for the PowerPoint slides together. The second is a food sharing project. I introduced him to 4 different dishes with the background stories. Wes eventually chosen the red egg as his target food to share in class."
"We worked on vocabulary terms and a new reading. I explained a few cultural aspects of Chinese family systems and marriage mentioned in the text. We also went over the three grammatical issues."
