Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we discussed the student's latest assignments. The first was a dice-rolling frequency distribution generator, which counted the number of actual and predicted rolls of two dice which added up to various totals, out of a given number of imaginary rolls. The second was a coordinate geometry calculator which managed linear equations (in standard form, as LinearEquations objects) and points (as Coords objects). We made several notes on his assignments, and I told him to contact me by phone if he has any more questions before his test. Have a great evening."
"The student and I wrapped up tasks for the latest sprint for her group project. We increased test coverage and went over updating feature branches with changes from the master branch. She had been struggling with getting features in on time, but we managed to complete a couple of features with some unit tests which should hopefully get her a good grade for this week! Tomorrow we'll work on a lab assignment and once we get some tasks approved on the next sprint, we'll revisit the group project. For now, it seems that we've just about caught up."
"Today, we covered stacks and queues. I left some code to help the student with the assignment so that a portion of it can be finished before we meet again tomorrow. Today's session went very well."
"We finally nailed B-Trees, and then reviewed heaps (inserts, deletions, array notation, and heapify). Then we worked on the beginnings of lab4, and knocked out two of the functions that the student needs to implement. These functions involved hashing functions for a hashtable class."
"We covered containers, arrays, arraylists, constructors, objects, and talked about what else the student would like to go over in the future. She understands the general idea of what we are talking about, but it will be good for her to have a good review to solidify her understanding of these concepts."
"We resolved some issues with the structure of Cucumber for Java JUnit, Step and Feature files. Basic JUnit asserts and Regex were introduced. In the next session, we will look into driving a browser using Selenium."
