A little bit about me, I am currently a student at the University of Hartford. I major in Computer Science and minor in Data Science. I have been learning and working with Java for over 2 and a half years now. I currently work as a TA for a computer science course teaching the fundamental concepts of Java.
As a student myself, I can understand the frustration of not being able to follow along with a certain topic in class whether that is due to bad teaching or just the concept overall is difficult. What I've learned from my TA experience is that students learn best when they feel like they're being understood. My initial focus when teaching is to find out what you already know and your view of the concept we're going over. I believe this would allow both of us to efficiently utilize our time in the session.
