Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we looked at how unemployment effects GDP, along with some flaws with GDP. Our progress has remained slow but steady, and I am happy with where we are currently. I think that we have built a solid base for him to work with when he starts his class in the winter."
"This was our last session before the student's midterm. We did some more practice problems and went over key formulas and concepts to study for the midterm."
"We went over the student's problem set: income/ substitution effects, cost-minimization, average and marginal product of labor, and changes in budget constraint."
"The student is preparing for an upcoming exam. We reviewed class notes and two recent homework assignments on time series analysis and forecasting models. I pointed out topics where the professor may ask a subtle conceptual point requiring the student to carefully understand the exam question. She felt very comfortable with the material."
"The student and I continued working on the sampling distribution and its statistics. He seems to be understanding it."
"The student and I continued to review topics in Chapter 18 related to performance and remedies. We reviewed the concept related to "good faith", and also the difference between material vs. nonmaterial breach and how to determine whether or not a breach is material (e. g. based upon time). We also learned more about anticipatory breach, whether or not the party who had to perform the initial action can obtain recovery, excuses for nonperformance (including impossibility and impractibility) that result in "no breach" and six additional situations that result in discharge (from the contract). Finally, we started covering the remedies associated with a breach of contract."
