Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I assisted the student with her binary conversions homework, and showed her some alternate techniques for working with binary and hexadecimal. We also spent time improving our lunar lander game."
"The student and I met to go over how to use PowerPoint and Microsoft Excel. She will be transitioning jobs and being familiar with these two programs will be helpful."
"We went through midterm review packets 3 - 8. The student only occasionally needed my assistance. Generally speaking, my answer usually involved running the code and testing its extreme values. That strategy applies to both understanding and debugging code in most circumstances. We reviewed simple data types; arrays; ArrayLists; class types; objects; a wide variety of common method calls, especially to arrays and Strings; common syntax errors; basic run time errors; common looping errors; object declaration; and object instantiation. All of these subjects can be reviewed more deeply by searching "Java [subject] [optionally: tutorial, practice, examples, help, forum, tips]"; I have tried to refer to these subjects by the precise language by which they can most easily be more deeply investigated."
