Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We focused on questions that the student wanted to review from the beginning of his class work. We worked on basic counting principles (multiplication rule, addition rule, basic Venn diagrams with the exclusion principle). We then worked on some basic set theory questions, including basic set-related proofs."
"We went over the problems the student had in her programs and were able to outline a method to solve the postfix calculator program. We will meet later this week to review this program and discuss the next assignment."
"Covered Terminal navigation, some basic C code, reviewed some of work from class and looked at work for the coming week. The student was very engaged, taking notes. Recommended a site to look at with plenty of practice problems."
"We went over a lot of testing and added new things that the TA/professor suggested to test the project. We were able to implement all of the statistics so that we can check to see if there are issues in the code. Next time, we will just debug to finish the project."
"It has been a few weeks since our last session, so we went over some old material to begin the lesson. We went over if-then, loop conditionals, and switch-cases statements as review. After review, we did 2 practice problems in use the above methods. After the practice problems, we went into array topics (1-dimensional and 2-dimensional). We did one practice problem with them. To end the session, I went into greater detail about methods and what which keyword meant."
"Session 2 of heap memory. The previous sessions discussed the concept behind heaps so that he could get started on his project. This session covered his implementation of that understanding. We focused on initializing the heap and reserving the first free header space. He is still struggling through the big picture understanding, but showing great improvements towards understanding. While this assignment has "easy" concepts, the implementation of it can be very verbose. There are many facets that must be maintained to keep the integrity of the data structure."
