Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we went over fundamentals of Final Cut Pro 2. The student mostly just needed help on how to transfer the majority of his data to an external drive, and then needed some extra assistance on how to start and organize new projects and events within Final Cut Pro. He is a cool guy, and he showed up to the session excited about learning some new skills regarding the software. The student is planning on finishing out the rest of his project, and then coming to the next session with any questions that develop over the upcoming week. He's got a great attitude, and he seems excited to learn new material!"
"During this session, I worked with the student and moved through several of the Common Core 3rd grade math sections of practice problems. It was a great experience for her! She worked on multiplication, division, addition of three digit numbers, fractions, and graph reading. She did a great job and is clearly very ready for 3rd grade math next year."
"I covered Excel spreadsheet concepts that the student was interested in learning. His attitude was very positive and we covered all of the concepts requested, and with time left over covered some additional material."
"The student and I discussed various formulas: Sum, SumIf, Vlookup. Discussed some tricks for quicker, easier reports and generation: flash fill function, pivot tables/charts. We briefly touched on VBA and the use of data forms."
"The student and I launched his business website today. We discussed Wordpress concepts like transferring a wordpress.com site to your own domain, navigating the Wordpress interface, choosing a theme, editing widgets, the customization menu, adjusting color and typography to match the company's brand identity, and navigation/ pages. Secondly, we talked about the basics of user experience design and the benefits of planning a website through user personas, sitemap, and user flow, prior to working out the technical details of implementation in the web development interface. We also talked about web hosting services. We began laying out the home page, and one of our big wins was putting the company phone number at the top of the website."
