Today we discussed what her goals were for the summer. We talked about the transition from Junior high to High school. Gave assignment to read and analyzed the first chapter of Lord of the Flies.
The student and I reviewed Chapters 5 and 6 of the Official SAT Guide--those cover sentence completion and passage-based questions. We discussed the following strategies: looking at the charge of a sentence and the context of each blank (positive or negative); boxing clauses, conjunctions, and other transition words as well as negatives and identifying their purpose (e.g. to indicate agreement, contradiction, dependence, or temporal context); underlining key phrases or hints within each sentence. When using these strategies, the student missed only one question in 10. However, we will need to continue improving his speed in order to match the pacing of the test. The student should be taking his practice SAT in segments this week, on a schedule we agreed to on Sunday, and emailing his responses by Friday. He was too busy last week to complete a practice exam.
We worked on a packet for a test. We reviewed various concepts, such as geometric progressions, arithmetic sequences, the sums of these, and limits of various kinds. We're meeting tomorrow to work on the rest of the packet.
We covered chapter 12, with the two main concepts being weighted average cost of capital and marginal cost of capital. One of the biggest points was that even though there are no explicit costs for retained earnings, we still need to treat it like common stock (not including flotation costs). We also did a couple of tax problems for fun.
We covered topics from Chapter 7 of his Finance book - capital budgeting. We went over some spreadsheets. We talked about planning for upcoming Harvard Business Case reviews and material due this Tuesday.
We examined side-by-side the sheet of formulas and the prior exam to review which formulas to use for each particular type of story problem. We identified specific questions that the student can ask his professor early this week. I provided guidance on how to do that for maximum results. I asked for an email by Tuesday on the outcome of that conversation, so that we can have a proper focus for our next session.
The student and I worked on an essay assignment that was due the next day. It looks like she is going to have to work hard at this class because of how much material they'll be learning. We're planning to meet twice a week to go over concepts and review specific class assignments.
We covered topics on Portfolio Management including: asset allocation, diversification, rebalancing, alpha, and beta. We also covered different types of assets including: stocks, bonds, and mutual funds and the pros and cons of each.
This was my first session with the student so we spent a little while getting acquainted and looking over the format of the notes and material. One of the major takeaways for her was learning how to amortize payment schedule using a financial calculator. Lastly, we discussed the interpretation of financial ratios and I was able to give her a quick helper to use on major financial ratios and their purposes.
The student and I worked through a practice test that he had begun. The English section was really strong. We worked through questions that he had missed, and he was able to identify with great confidence the questions he knew were right and the questions he thought may be wrong. English was great. We also worked on math which was pretty good. Often, he would get tripped up on problems that involved several steps. Once he got stuck he would just take an educated guess and move on, which is not an awful strategy. I explained these more difficult math concepts and he started to pick them up. For next time, he will have a practice exam sent to me in advance so I can spend some time looking at what would be good to focus on.
Reviewed adding and subtracting negative and positive numbers (he's doing that in school), and showed him how to multiply and divide using negative numbers. Did math and reading comprehension problems from practice guide.
