Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
Worked with the student on VLOOKUP function and WHATIF scenarios in Excel, as she does work in Excel for her class on spreadsheets. Went through examples found in books on Excel that I found at the library and used exercises from her class textbook. Will work more with actual Excel spreadsheets in the next session.
She hasn't actually programmed anything in a computer lately but has instead been studying algorithms in her class and preparing for the AP test. We completed a few practice AP questions in preparation for her practice test this Saturday. The questions were about finding problems in code and inheritance.
The student and I worked on her Excel project. We worked on entering formulas, formatting, getting started, translating her abstract ideas into concrete plans, organizing the worksheets, focusing in on what interests her most, figuring out how to talk to her professor during office hours, a plan of attack for finishing the project on time, and how to be the most efficient with meeting the requirements of the project.
Went over a multiple choice practice exam in preparation for the test. The student has a solid grasp on Java syntax and semantics. Logic behind the code is also decent but he ran into some issues with counting and algorithm implementation. The groundwork and ability are there, I think he just needs more experience.
To prepare the student for his AP test we re-covered two subjects which he had some trouble with: functions and ArrayLists. We first went through the steps required to create a useful function, which included choosing parameters and return types. We then addressed creating the functionality of a function. Afterwards we went over how ArrayLists work and how they can be used to produce compact and effective code. I also showed him the effectiveness of using two for loops to be able to solve most free response questions asked on the AP exam.
I met with the student to help her fine tune some points on her final exam project for her class, Visual Basic I. She completed most of the project before our session, so she was well prepared with specific, thoughtful questions and ideas. We talked about how she could include multiple hyperlinks and picture/video boxes in her custom application. She grasped the concepts almost immediately. I stayed on to help answer questions, troubleshoot code writing, and brainstorm other possible elements to finalize the elements in the application. At the end of our session, she felt very confidant that she would exceed the expectations on her project.
We reviewed the html tags the student has already learned, and applied those to the continuation of his game. We talked about the need to practice when I'm not there, and we decided he would create a few more pages without me so he could have questions for our next session
The student and I met and began the session by breaking the ice and discussing her past history with Microsoft Excel, which she stated was none. To help ease her into using the program, we did an activity of logging different information into the program, such monthly rent and populations of different countries, and creating graphs from these. Then, I showed her how to manipulate data in different categories and columns, and use basic arithmetic functions (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) to create new sets of data, such as averages. At the end of the session, we worked out a budget for six months, making up information for fake bills to create data, and I showed her how Excel can auto-adapt when new information is added, or updated. I look forward to another great session with her tomorrow!
We covered relations represented by matrices and directed graphs, equivalence relations and equivalence classes. By the end the student seemed to have a better understanding of the difference between an equivalence relation and an equivalence class and the relationship between the two.
We reviewed the first section of Chapter 1 in the student's textbook and made sure he understood each concept. Topics included were truth values, truth tables, antecedents or consequents, negation, compound statements, symbolic notation, well-formed formulas, equivalence, tautologies, and DeMorgan's Law. At our next session, we will review more textbook material (based on what has been covered in class) and work on the first homework assignment. We will also begin to prepare for quizzes/tests if any are announced by the professor.
Met the student and discussed his interest in game development. He showed me his current game and, unprompted, began enumerating the plethora of features he'd like to add.
Basic install of programming environment; basic Unix commands for compiling (and navigating through file system); overview of control structures that are similar to Java; assigned several small programs for the student to practice basic concepts
How can a tutor help you master Computer Science?
Whether you are taking a computer science course and having difficulties or would merely like to expand your technological skill set, Varsity Tutors can help connect you with the perfect match for your computer science tutoring needs.
Learning to code on your own is difficult, and oftentimes computer science courses don’t provide enough feedback to streamline the process. Students spend their time looking for that one unclosed parentheses they believe is preventing their program from running, when there are likely bigger syntactic or conceptual mistakes that are the real root of the problem. Want to avoid the common pitfalls that amateur coders experience? Learn computer science in a way that is intuitive, and work with computer science tutors anywhere across the U.S.
Tutors are available to work with you in a variety of fields—from general programming and algorithm design to database management or the complexities of artificial intelligence and computing mathematics. From the convenience of your own home, or even online, you can gain expertise that will help bolster your resume, possibly giving you a “leg up” in the job market for years to come. These computer science tutors are not only expert coders—they also have the skills to teach you what they know in a way that meshes well with the way you learn best. Computer science tutoring can happen whenever and wherever is best for you, in order to deliver lessons that are focused on your concerns and the concepts you find confusing. We will help you choose a tutor who can provide help for your specific background, building on your pre-existing programming and computing skills, whatever they might be. Unlike a computer science class, with a tutor you can spend as much time learning and practicing a concept as it takes until you understand it fully. And, since you don’t need to spend any time rehashing material that you already understand, your computer science tutoring sessions can be extremely efficient.
From novice students to expert coders, tutors are available to make computer science instruction as painless as possible. Let us help you succeed in this field, which is so important in the contemporary economy. Want to master computer science under the personal guidance of a tutor who is dedicated to your success?
