Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked through a number of small issues that the student had with inheritance and working through the design of a program that modeled a set of accounts. We also worked through the use of an external Yahoo library for getting stock prices. He seems to still need a little more experience working with inheritance and the making of class schemata using abstraction, but he did have a great deal done for our session in advance."
"We were able to run through several of the labs the student needed to work on. With each lab exercise, I explained not just the solutions but the techniques used to utilize the solution itself. After doing that, I talked with him about Java graphics packages and the skills he will be utilizing in the course's second unit. We talked about the differences between Java native packages and the packages his professor constructed for Unit 1. Finally, I talked to him about animation in Java and how the basic graphics skills he will learn will be applied to that type of exercise."
"We double checked a part of the program to make sure that it will add items to the cart correctly. We also went over the sample midterm to review the material before the test."
