Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"After a few basic points based on the last assignment, we began by talking about object-oriented programming (in general). Examples were adduced from the physical world to help teach the basic points. We then began working on a basic shape calculating program, steadily building the basic concepts of public / private scope, public methods, getters / setters, constructors, and the use of self-created packages. In the course of our discussion, some basic CIS topics were discussed informally (binary numbers and keyboard input) to help explain some questions he had about the assignment and the work that we were currently doing. We finished with an assignment that requires the writing of two classes-one to model rectangle calculations and another to model right triangular ones."
"Today, we reviewed all the material the student had come across at this point in order to help him prepare for his exam."
"Tonight we worked more on the calculator GUI. Tonight, we added methods for handling plus and minus buttons. Plus works great. The student is going to go ahead and implement the flawed code for the remaining operators since it will speed up the process for next time."
