Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I assigned the student to write a program that involves empty arrays and having the user insert data into the array. At first, he had a problem on how the program should be written, but with the help of his notes from our previous sessions, he understood how to write the program and how it functions."
"The student and I covered hash tables, linked lists, and handling collisions. We worked on how to define the hash table, do an insert, and deallocate it."
"We covered STL containers and iterators. The student needed help implementing her own STL containers and iterators which need to be compatible with STL functions and lambda functions. The session went well."
"The student and I went over some more relational algebra. She had to modify some of her answers for the first assignment, based on some feedback from her professor, but she were able to fix her problems and feel more confident about it."
"During this session, the student created several complex functions dealing with null terminated C-strings. This assignment gave her some extensive practice using pointers and dealing with character arrays. Overall, it was a great session!"
"This week, the student had an assignment that involved reading a file, and processing arrays of scores. The wrinkle to this was that the assignment required using pointer notation, rather than the usual array offset notation. He had already made a good start. During the session, I took the time to explain why using pointer notation is a good thing to know. Using it on arrays is somewhat overkill, but doing so gets a programmer familiar enough with the concept that when it comes to using data structures, it's not such a shock. He was able to complete the project, and it ran successfully after only one, small logic error was detected and fixed. Very impressive."
