Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We had an excellent session! We primarily covered and reviewed monetary policy concepts. She had completed a number of questions and I verified that her answers were on track. We discussed both expansionary and contractionary policy, the Federal Reserve tools used to adjust the money supply, fractional reserve banking and money "theory". I will be following up with her regarding one of the specific monetary theories (which is the quantity theory of money), as well as an application of the Federal Reserve required ratio."
"Today this student and I continued to prepare for her AP macro and micro exams. We focused mostly on macro topics, going over more obscure concepts like monopsonies as well as reviewing perfect versus monopolistic competition. We looked at both multiple choice practice questions and FRQs from the past AP exams. Even though she has not reviewed the micro material since last semester, she is doing well--getting many questions right, and easily understanding why the correct answer is correct on the ones she misses or has not learned yet."
"We began Wednesday by reviewing a set of questions on fiscal and monetary policy, which the student did very well on. We then wrapped up our substantive review by covering a bit more on the Phillips curve and foreign exchange rates. With our topic review finished, we set up a plan to cover practice questions and specific trouble areas on Saturday, as well as set up a schedule for her to do a bit of independent review and practice every day over the next week."
