Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed SQL INSERT, UPDATE, JOIN, and SELECT. The student wanted a refresher and had a positive attitude. The student will do practical application at work."
"We set up the student's social media account, including her profile, security settings, adding friends, and posting a status. We talked about social media marketing and some other avenues for promoting her business online. We discussed ways to use email lists and creating a database for business emails via Excel. She was unfamiliar with social media in general, but was willing and able to set up her account. She will continue filling in account details. Our computer platforms are different, so there are a few things I will research and help with on our next session."
"We worked on a class project to design a database based on the given requirements. We worked on designing the ER model along with the schema. We ensured the model was normalized as well as followed previously learned concepts."
"We worked on a review of a new assignment, which was a card game. We did the first function, which was to distribute the cards. The student did a good job setting up the materials. We are getting there, but still have some issues that need to be fixed. I have asked the student to send me the code so that I can check it."
"I covered basic SQL commands and queries. I also covered basic query concepts and interpretation of select queries. The student was struggling with understanding of basic concepts and query structures. She was very excited about the reviewed material and made significant input in the course of the lesson.

She was given some research and practical questions as follow-up to the next class.
