Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered as much material as possible this session to help the student prepare for her midterm. We worked on select questions from the practice midterm, and I gave lessons explaining concepts like supply/demand graphs, elasticity, shifts in supply and demand, etc. We are meeting again tomorrow to continue preparing, so I asked her to go over some of the concepts that we covered because I will ask her about them tomorrow. She will continue looking through her practice exam, and I will help her through the harder problems tomorrow."
"We worked through 50 quantitative methods problems covering transportation, assignment and network models, integer programming, and waiting lines and queuing theory. While most of the problems were straightforward, many were quite difficult. The student was able to work through the problems. Some of the problems required knowing material not covered in the textbook or in class."
"The student and I reviewed an article in order for her to complete the next summary/ response for her course that focuses more on strategy and operations. We discussed an article which highlighted the operations of a convenience store. She already had identified several important and excellent operational characteristics related to the company's success, including the fact they were privately held and used innovative strategies. She was also able to relate their operations to those of a computer company, and I provided her with two links related to the computer company, as well as the concepts related to operational strategy."
"Today, we focused on quantity purchase decisions, EOQ, and capacity planning. The student seemed to have a good grasp of capacity planning."
"For today's concept we reviewed finding a linear regression model and its equation. We did a walk through of how to find the model equation on Excel and it helped the student, especially for future use. In addition to the linear regression model, we reviewed the Durbin-Watson test and used Excel with a problem from a statistics textbook. I found that this helped him a lot and he told me that he reviewed the concepts again. As always, he was engaged and asked me questions on things that he didn't understand. Today was a good session and I will probably do another session very soon."
"The student and I covered process flow charts and Little's law, plus applications. We went through end of chapter practice problems. I suggested practicing as many problems as possible in order to familiarize herself with the questions and processes."
