Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student received a perfect score on his spelling pretest! Excellent work! Consequently, we focused on spelling his Zippity Doo Dah words, particularly on definitions, and reading from the online curriculum books."
"The student and I went over his vocabulary for his test on Friday. After that, we did some research on Dwight Eisenhower. We finished off the session by going over spelling. I hope to start working on his writing and reading skills."
"The student will be pursuing Human-Computer Interaction Master's Program at one of two universities. She prefers one program because it can be completed within a year providing she tests out of 3 classes - one of which involves understanding computer programming. I read what the testing objectives will be for this program and started off with a presentation on how binary notation is used to represent the various types of variables in programming languages including positive, negative, and floating point numbers as well as text. I also went over basic computer design and how programs run on computers. We also made sure a Java compiler was up and running on her computer. We agreed to meet for an hour again on Thursday and for two hours the following Monday."
"Assisted the student with some science homework and worked on part of his review packet for Geometry. I've also asked that he fill out his purple notes to completion so that he can get a jump start on studying for his final next week."
"In school, the student will be working on place value, comparing numbers, and ways to write numbers, so our session focused on a pretest on all of these topics to identify his strengths and weaknesses. This will help us to focus our sessions to best meet his needs. We also discussed some reading comprehension assignments that his teacher assigned."
"We looked over the student's new course syllabus for the quarter, then talked about visibility modifiers (public, private, protected) and the "static" keyword (what it means for a variable to be static and what it means for a function to be static). Then, we briefly went over model-view-controller and did a short exercise on creating classes and inheritance."
