Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went through a test then through a practice AP exam. We went over some main concepts such as short circuiting and pointers/objects. We will meet next Monday and Tuesday to prepare for the AP exam."
"Today we started out with a free response question the student received in class. We went on to go over multiple choice questions that she had questions on. We went over two questions that dealt with recursion, tracing through exactly how the program called the methods recursively. She at first struggled with tracing the recursive methods, but as we went on she got a lot more proficient at it. We also talked about a question that dealt with pass-by-value vs. pass-by-reference. I gave several examples of this concept as well as explaining what it is exactly, and it seemed like she understood the mini lesson. After the multiple choice questions we went online and did a few exercises."
"This session was mostly trying to gauge where the student was in his preparation. We focused mostly on the most important strategy for the multiple choice questions. This was an effective way to gauge his level of understanding of code. I left him with a problem to finish, using the method we talked about."
