Hello Pete,

"ждать" and "ожидать" are synonyms and have the meaning "to wait", "to expect". Number 3 uses the past tense of "ждать" - "ждала". However, you can also use "ожидала" - meaning would be the same.

Regarding your second question. It`s like in English:

1. "I have met the client" - without preposition.

2. "I met with him" - here we use the proposition "with".

Please, let me know if you have any questions.

Also in the lesson notes - this time for example number 4 in the present tense you use с клиентом - "with the client" (instrumental case?) but you use клиента (genetive case but no preposition?) for the past tense. Can you explain please

In the lesson notes for number 3 you use ожидать - "to wait for" for the present tense, but for the past tense you use ждать which according to my dictionary is a different word, meaning "to expect". Neither word seems to have a separate perfective or imperfective form. Please explain.
