Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

During this first session, the student and I worked on the basic structure of a Java program, focusing on branching (if / else), variable types, and input / output (using Scanner and the standard System.out methods). I assigned a calculator program for him to do for me for next time. We began it during the session. He is to add several functions as well as to "tighten up" some the code, which I left verbose on purpose.

We continued working on the maze game we constructed in our last session, this time focusing on implementing conditional loops. We used pseudo code to sketch out the game's plan and the student picked up that methodology very quickly. She is beginning to intuit what needs to come next in a code and where bugs might be. She seems engaged and excited when her code works and is clearly very interested in learning more. We will continue to develop the maze program, adding a timer and a scoring system.

Today we covered the same program from yesterday. However, the student was able to install the curve fitting toolbox for Matlab, and I assisted him to make the corrections needed to his spline for his assignment. Tomorrow we will be meeting to go over any problems that came up with finalizing this project, and begin the next project.

Continued helping with the test. The final answers were rather tough, so I spent awhile going over the concepts so she could answer the questions.

Played around with Scratch, a browser-based drag-and-drop programming environment for children. We set up basic keyboard events to control a sprite's position and did basic editing of vector graphics to alter the sprite's appearance. I also introduced the student to the concept of DRY (don't repeat yourself) by using a variable to control the sprite's speed instead of setting the speed directly in multiple places.

We went over the code he had. Then we discussed psuedocode for rest of his game. We plan to meet soon when he has some more code written

We went over more Python basics and went over again the basics of programming logic -- if-statements, loops, and variables.

We covered assembly programming: jump instructions based on FLAGS, comparison between values, labels, flow of assembly programs with various kinds of jumps, code examples, EBP, ESP, and stack frames.

The student and I began our session by reviewing the latest topics covered in his class: recursive code. This involves fascinating but rather unintuitive approaches to coding, so we took our time understanding how to define recursivity, how to approach certain problems through a recursive lens, and how that might simplify code writing endeavors in some cases. We then turned our attention to his homework, which asked about recursive approaches to exponents, factorials, greatest common divisors and the Fibonacci sequence. At first, it was tough to establish a recursive mindset to solve these problems, but once he grasped the two requirements for a recursive function - a 'base state' and a recursed modifier - we had no problem defining recursive methods for each of those problems. With the time we had left, he and I discussed the possibility of creating a 'Game of Life' - a classic coding endeavor with some rather interesting properties that would do a lot to compliment his growing expertise in computer science.

I had the student work through various problems to understand the logic behind nested for loops. We also went through some compiler errors.

We reviewed online assignments that dealt with domain, range, and increasing/decreasing intervals. We also went over an excel project that dealt with pivot tables and formula notation.

The student and I made some configuration changes to his Mac computer. He had a few questions that I was able to answer.
