Session Summaries by English Grammar and Syntax Tutors

English Grammar and Syntax Tutoring review by Samantha in Philadelphia, PA
The student informed me of his desire to become a lawyer so I taught him some new vocabulary that pertains to law. I also provided him with a vocabulary notebook that we will use to record vocabulary words that he finds difficult with along with their definition, pronunciation, and common use. At the conclusion of our sessions, he will take this back to his home country with him. We also did a mock-trial speaking exercise to use the new vocabulary words and practice speech.

English Grammar and Syntax Tutoring review by Ashley in Philadelphia, PA
Today we reviewed the alphabet sound material from yesterday. Using online videos of people spelling their names, the student would listen to the name and spelling and then try to spell it accurately, and well as recite the letters out loud. We then moved onto vocabulary that is often used in the kitchen. Using items in the student's house, we made flashcards for the English words refrigerator (fridge), stove, knob, sink, faucet, coffee grinder, coffee maker, blender, mixer, fork/knife/spoon, and cutting board, among others. Homework was to spell common English names and recite the letters as they are spelled. The student says she loves to supplement her ESL practice with reading the newspaper and using an app on her phone for vocab, so we have been focusing mainly on sounds and pronunciation.

English Grammar and Syntax Tutoring review by Emily in Philadelphia, PA
Today we started off by reviewing job and work vocabulary such as experience, skills, qualifications, temporary, permanent, retire, etc. We then moved into the focus of today's lesson: defining relative clauses. He tends to get stuck when having a conversation and coming to a word they don't know. They freeze, don't say anything, don't know how to continue. Being able to describe words they don't know using words they do know is an important skill they need to learn. Our lesson was on defining words using relative clauses: a thing which, a person who, a place where, it's similar to X, it's like X but it means X, it's the opposite of X, it's a kind of X, etc. Knowing these phrases is key to explaining words. He learns quickly.

English Grammar and Syntax Tutoring review by Nina in Philadelphia, PA
This session, we worked a lot with the verbs "to be," "to have," and "to want." We did a combination of different exercises that I used to test her understanding; some of these exercises involved synthesizing sentences using the provided components, while others were more involved and required her to produce completely original sentences on her own. This helped her become much quicker at conjugating the verbs. Since she is about to travel to Argentina, we are starting to shift our focus to some travel vocabulary. I only had a bit of time to introduce this subject, but we will continue with it next session because I think it will help to ease some of her worries about traveling.

English Grammar and Syntax Tutoring review by Cinthia in Philadelphia, PA
Today, I gave the student a writing assessment which he worked on for about 15 minutes. After reading an article on "The Simpsons" TV show that outlined its basic themes and its long success, we discussed what story, themes, and characters are. I asked him if he had a favorite TV show, movie, game, and what his favorite hobbies are. His writing assessment was to explain his favorite game, League of Legends. He let me know that he needs most help with biology. I reviewed the chapter his class is on while he did his writing, so that we can work on biology more in depth for next time. We then worked on all 20 vocabulary words from Unit 10 of his book for about 45 minutes. I had him spell each word on paper and use it in a sentence. We paused often to discuss homonyms, antonyms, or synonyms of some of the words. We also discussed their meaning and common usage in English conversation. The remaining 15 minutes he outlined what he has done in Biology class so far, and we talked about his schedule, tests, and what we could work on in the future. His attitude throughout the session was very engaged and motivated. During vocabulary work he wanted to rely on the Chinese translations, so the in depth conversation and further examples of each word seemed to help his understanding greatly. Today's writing practice also helped, so I will be giving him casual journal assignments either once or twice weekly so that he can practice expressing and elaborating his ideas in English. I left him with reading practice: "The American Civil War" and "The Simpsons" article. We will have a brief discussion on the reading in the next session. I also instructed him to elaborate certain ideas in his "League of Legends" writing and to correct the grammar mistakes in it that I reviewed with him.
