Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student and I went over different uses of Excel. We specifically went over using VLOOKUP, ISNA, MID, and OR. We also concatenated strings in order to put a word together. He seemed to be getting the hang of Excel pretty quickly and seems very ready for the test. I highly recommend for him to memorize the few formulas in order to give him a time advantage on the test, and also to practice these formulas several more times leading up to the test to make sure that he has remembered how to use them properly."
"We addressed tenses (past v. present) used in APA and the act of writing a conclusion. The student is still struggling with her professor of this course. We have plans to meet again tomorrow night to address her next paper, which she will be writing between now and then."
"We went over the process of editing and printing photos again and the student seemed very confident with the process by the end of the session. We also explored how to attach a photo to an email and send it."
"Today, the student and I covered some topics involving Microsoft Word, Microsoft Windows, and Google Chrome. We reviewed some of the topics we had previously covered in Microsoft Word and Windows. Since the student uses Google Chrome as her default web browser, I showed her some of the settings that you can change and also how to create bookmarks."
"The student worked on his final assignment this week. He finished the pseudo-code involved with the program and figured out the logic for how everything would run. He is now fully incorporating while loops, if statements, and Boolean logic. This project shows that he is making real progress. Next week we'll dive into the actual Java of the project, and then he will be ready to submit."
"During this session, the student and I continued to review concepts in Excel as well as working through some mobile app questions. In Excel, we reviewed and practiced multiple concepts including: Merge and Center Drag, auto fill for months, replicated series, inserting columns, renaming and creating new sheets, highlighting and copy and pasting whole sheets, changing column widths, the SUM function =SUM(), including dragging the sum function across columns, simple sums using =, +, -, making cells bold, and referencing cells between different spreadsheets. He continues to improve with his Excel skills, as the material becomes more intuitive for him as he uses the program more. For our next session, he is going to continue entering data into the spreadsheet we built so we can continue to add functionality at our next session."
