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.
