Missing Wednesday Class

Hi everyone, I won’t be in class tomorrow (10/23) because I will be heading to Boston with the SGA if you have any questions on the homework or the class let me know through email and we can work email, or over video call if necessary.

For Data-Structures students, I will be rescheduling my group review to 11:00 AM on Thursday in room 314.

Best and see you Friday or Thursday.

Individual Review Times & Digital Communication

Hello everyone,

Now that my schedule is mostly finalized I wanted to distribute the times I’m available to meet one on one to work together through challenges in the class.

I have attached an image of my general free time schedule, there are a lot of events I need to attend with Student Government so please let me through email or in class to schedule a concrete time whenever you want to meet.

Also if you would like to work with me through video chat you can send me an email, and we can use Google hangouts or Skype.

Thanks and see you Friday

Supplemental Instruction Group Review Times

Hello everyone,

Just a quick heads up on when my group review times will be happening.

For CSC-111 I will be having my group review sessions at 11:05 AM – 12:05 PM on Monday and Friday.

And for CSC-220 I will be having them at 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM on Wednesday and Friday.

If these times do not work for you and you would like assistance with anything related to the course, please feel free to email me at jtalvarez0001@student.stcc.edu and we could work through email or set up a time for an individual review session.

Most weeks including next I will be available during college hour on Monday so we can use this time to set up a review session.

The rooms have not been determined yet, as for the Monday CSC-111 session I will start in 314 and if a class starts we will move to another computer lab.

I plan to cover the homework and practice creating and submitting your java source code.

Thanks and see you all Monday.

Supplemental Instruction (SI)

Introducing Jimmy Alvarez, Java Certified Programmer. We are lucky to have his services as a Supplemental Instructor for all Java courses running this Fall 2019 semester.

The college has a new program called Supplemental Instruction (SI). Through this program, you will have the opportunity to meet weekly with our SI Leader, who will provide weekly review sessions for all interested students. The Leader is a current student who has recently taken the course and done well. They will be in class with you every day, hearing what you hear, and reading what you read. During each review session, you will have a chance to get together with your classmates to compare notes, discuss concepts that might be confusing, review material for tests and quizzes, and ask any questions that you might have.

Sessions will begin the week of September 8th, and run through the end of the semester. You can attend as many review sessions as you like; each one will be different because you will have new material to discuss. SI sessions are informal – bring any notes you have, your textbook, or a classmate! By coming to these sessions, you will be able to develop a better understanding of the course content as well as more effective ways of learning.

If you are unable to attend the group session, but would like to meet with the SI Leader, you can set up an individual time to meet with them. You can let them know you would like to make an appointment with them when you see them in class, or feel free to send them a note through their college email.

I am thrilled that we have this new opportunity for you, and I am hopeful that you take advantage of this program.
