Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session we focused on loops, and in particular spent nearly the entire session on while loops. This included a discussion of when and why loops are useful, as well as when while loops are the appropriate loop to use. The student practiced using while loops by first writing a function that checks whether a given number is prime, and then using this function to write another function that prints every prime number that is less than or equal to a given number. In order to write this second function, the idea of return statements was introduced and their functionality explained. Overall the student seemed to follow along well, although she is still having some issues with syntax as she is still in the process of getting familiar with Python. She was attentive throughout the session, and asked questions when she was confused or when she wanted to know something that we had not yet gone over (which shows that she is interested in the material.)"
