Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We continued reviewing his marketing handout for internet-ready appliances. We selected a specific appliance to focus on and downloaded the manual to help pull information for the handout. I showed him some basic Photoshop functionality that will help him design and edit the layout of the page. We then switched over to Access, where we had to create a simple project to track patients, doctors, and their schedules. We went through all aspects of the program: tables, forms, queries, and reports. I helped show him how to set up all four and connect the various aspects together."
"Today, the student and I worked on table formatting, protection of cells and workbook, hiding and unhiding columns, and tutorial resources online. He is a fast learner and he is doing well. He was attentive and active through the whole tutoring session."
"Tonight the student learned how to upload pictures from his camera to his laptop and transfer them from his laptop to his iCloud. He practiced using the shift key and mouse to highlight multiple items on his laptop. Wednesday we will be downloading the Chrome browser so he can use tabs and save pages to his home screen when he accesses the Internet."
"Our initial and only session included an evaluation of the student on my part. The parent wanted me to teach the student the basics of coding and computer science. The session mostly was of me observing the student to see his proficiency with the computer. I concluded that the student is pretty well-versed in using the computer and has the potential to learn coding with special communication such as of an Augmented Communication device. With a tool like this, I believe the student would be more than capable of learning graphical coding."
"We covered graphics with Java, like how to draw a flag. The student was pleasant to work with and I look forward to our next meeting. I left him to draw a star to use for his USA flag program. I believe after drawing the flag, he will be able to understand how to draw shapes using for-loops to draw out patterns."
