Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I crushed his synthesis task, which combined all of the tools we explored yesterday regarding dictionaries. He even suggested a function that I had never used to iterate through the values of a dictionary, and ended up finding a more elegant solution than the one that I had in mind. That definitely was a great win today."
"Today, the student and I worked through a number of questions that I wrote in reference to his midterm 1 review. These questions included subjects such as list iteration, concatenation, arithmetic, use input, logic blocks, and Boolean concepts. He performed very well today, tackling the subjects with confidence and excelling at a number of the prompts. He is well on his way to become a very accomplished programmer within Python. I left him with a call to continue studying the code we have developed together as well as his other course materials in continued preparation for his final. We meet again on Friday."
"In this session we reviewed some fundamental concepts of Java and computer science in general. This included a discussion of Java as an object-oriented language, memory and data types, and writing some basic methods. The student was not struggling with anything in particular, but simply needed some review to refresh his memory on several concepts. The student is clearly interested in learning the material and preparing himself for future computer science classes."
"We continued work on her lab with shared memory and forking processes. We were able to get a test project running that demonstrated how share memory worked. Then we came back to her project and began implementation of it."
"We covered converting numbers from decimal to octal and vice versa. The student was eager to learn and was willing to do multiple practice problems and watch examples until he understood the material. I believe he understands the material, but I do not think he has fully mastery of it yet. After some more practice problems I believe he will be able to master the material. We will continue to work on this."
