Print a 2D array to text area

Print a 2D array to text area

I'm working on a program and don't have any java experience, so it's been a bit stressful.  Below is my code and it's supposed to record input each time you click the "enter" button and then output the array to a text area when you hit the "run report" button, but I can only get one value of the error to ever output when the "run report" button is clicked.

I'm sure it has something to do with my loop or where I'm declaring the variables, but I haven't figured out what the problem is yet.  Any help is appreciated!

     double[][] sessionArray = new double[10][2];

            //Exceptions for erroneous data
            try {
            tutorMinutes = Double.parseDouble(
            if (tutorMinutes <= 0 || tutorMinutes> 240) {
              throw new Exception();
                } catch (Exception e) {
                JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(this, "Invalid Input - Minutes must be greater than 0 and less than 240 - Please Try Again",
                  "Error", JOptionPane.ERROR_MESSAGE);

           try {
           tutorCost = Double.parseDouble(
           if (tutorCost <= 0) {
