Fall 2020

SY110 Tutoring

I typically provide 2 tutoring sessions in the evening each week in large group, small group, or individual sessions remotely.

If you are serious about passing the SY110 exams and want to actually learn the material, work through my flashcards.

I’m serious. it works, and there is an app that makes it easy

Tools

Quizlet is a flashcard tool that implements proven pedagogical techniques to help students master topics through repetition and games. It can sync with desktop and mobile devices and tracks students’ progress. Quizlet is free for students.

In the window below, you can preview one of the dozens of slide decks for the course, Chapter 3: Computer Architecture. If you want to track your progress and do practice tests, join the SY100 Quizlet Course (free).

It’s efficient. It automatically detects topics that the student is having difficulty mastering, and emphasizes those areas while reducing emphasis on areas where the student demonstrates mastery. In other words, it saves Midshipmen time. I also share results with profs to help Midshipmen represent their time, effort, and progress.

Schedule

My schedule for Fall 2020 will typically include a Topic Review and appointment-only sessions on Monday nights. A link to the sessions is located on the course calendar, or you can look me up in the USNA directory and contact me directly, or use the form below to send me a message.
