How can I help my student with Spanish class?

  • Visit my website to see daily agendas.
  • Practice flash cards with them.
  • Ask them to see their homework.
  • Ask them to see their stamp sheet. It shows what skills they have been able to produce verbally from memory and will need to do before the end of the grading period.
  • Review their notes with them.
  • Encourage them to study and come to tutorials (see hours below).
