Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We began this session by working through the student's homework. We worked on parts of the "lights out" game assigned before. I assigned for him to add the end condition and to reset the game upon win. For a longer-term project, he will be undertaking changes to the first assignment for today. That will be worked on during our next session."
"We went over the sorting algorithm in general and talked about the quicksort in details with an example. He was a bit confused with merge and quicksort. We went through step by step to sort the following array with quick sort algorithm (9,6,5,8,2,4,7,1,0) until he felt he had clear understanding. He will go over with the algorithm again using a computer program. He was motivated to learn."
"We went over more turtle graphics in Python. We went over her second assignment with turtle graphics. We also went over for loops in Python (i.e. for i in range(number)). These concepts are new to the student, so I'd like to go over them in more detail next session. She said that her professor covered the concept of loops in about 10-15 minutes, so a more in depth understanding would be helpful. She is doing very well and was able to finish her last assignment without any additional help. We are planning to meet again next Thursday."
