Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student is extraordinarily bright and easy to work with. The trick is to teach him quick, yet thorough, methods in order to make homework less cumbersome and more intellectually profitable."
"The student's two upcoming finals are in Science and Math; first we went twice over all the terms in the "Part 2" Biology study packet, and then using the answer key to his geometry study guide, I covered the answers with sticky notes and asked him how to solve each type of problem."
"We discussed Integration of Trigonometric Functions (i.e. sin, cos, tan, cot, sec, csc, etc.) and how to use trig identities to solve the integral. We also talked about Integration of Partial Fractions during the second half of our session. We discussed the first two cases of partial fractions in the textbook. The student did a couple of practice problems to demonstrate his understanding of the Integration of Trigonometric Function. We'll continue to talk about the remaining cases of Integration of Partial Fraction next week. "
"We continued reviewing for her final exam, which is tomorrow. The main concepts were compound functions, logarithms, interest, and systems of equations with matrices."
"I helped my client study for his exam today by going over some problems on his previous test. The topic covered in this session was mainly trigonometric function. After going over certain problems, my client was satisfied and he seemed prepared for his exam."
"We started from the ground up. We covered variable assignment and declaration, how to read text input from the user (using System.in), what exactly concepts like methods, classes, and memory are (and differences with their counterparts in Python), and wrote a short program illustrating those things. When we wrote the "Hello World!" program and went through the quadratic program line by line, you seemed to have several "aha" moments as we progressed. This is good. I think some of the material from the first few classes is starting to click, and you have a significantly clearer idea of what each basic aspect of Java actually does than you did at the start of our session. We have something to build on. Also of note: Java seems to be less scary and foreign for you than it did. This psychological shift has been and will be greatly helpful for your subsequent comprehension of the material."
