Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I talked about objects, reflection, and assemblies in preparation for his next project. He should read through the examples on the blog his professor sent him to get a better understanding of how reflections are used."
"The student and I covered concepts, including the definition of a computer, a basic overview of the history of computers, emphasizing the rapid advancements made in the past century, and different types of computers. After that, we discussed the basic components of computers, different types of operating systems (Macintosh, Windows, UNIX/Linux), and the history and significance of the Internet and Internet browsers."
"The student and I reviewed some math problems and verbal reasoning. He continues to make progress on the math and we are strengthening in core concepts. Verbal reasoning is very strong -- his only hindrance is vocab-related, which can be ameliorated with rote memorization efforts supplemental to sessions."
"The student and I reviewed statements that we began covering last time and introduced new statements. We also finished the chapter of "Python for Kids" and moved on to the "Getting Loopy" chapter, which began with discussing for loops. Conceptually, these were more difficult for her, so next time we will cover them more."
"The student and I spent some time going over recursion from a very high level, and then we began to install Wildfly 8.x (a web server) on his computer so that we can begin to get things set up for web development."
"We had warm-up exercises on 2-digit addition with regrouping. The student also counted by 10's to 1000 and went over addition flash cards. He showed good improvement from last time we did these. We then played a dice multiplication game. For homework, he is to complete more addition with regrouping problems."
