Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed the student's notes and chatted about a free response problem that she had to complete for her homework. She had just learned about the business cycle and unemployment, so I clarified a few points about peaks and troughs, as well as the different kinds of unemployment. We also reviewed the difference between GDP and GNP as well as different ways to measure GDP. She also had to make a discussion board post about how the government should redistribute income, so I talked through her argument with her and suggested several sources that she could use as supporting evidence."
"We went through the student's practice exam solutions. The topics covered were total costs calculation, predetermined overhead rate (POHR) calculations, COGM, COGS, equivalent units, and ABC costing. He will review the material in the morning before he takes his exam. He is a great student. He wants to be sure he understands the concepts."
"The student and I wrapped up the remaining quizzes he had in anticipation of his test. After that, we discussed some worksheet questions that were similar to a quiz problem. I think he is in good shape for the test."

"Today in our session we went over more concepts that will be on his upcoming exam. Some of those concepts include binomial distribution, Poisson Distribution, and Hypothesis Testing. The student showed a quick understanding of all concepts and feels completely confident in the material to pass his upcoming exam. I gave him some additional videos to watch about hypothesis testing to help in his studying."
"Today the student and I covered the Statement of Cash Flows and discussed a plan for the remainder of the semester. Our session today consisted of going through a comprehensive Statement of Cash Flows example and discussing each step in detail. The student has a great grasp on the general concepts regarding the Statement of Cash Flows and the best way to improve his performance on these problems is just through repetition."
"The student sent me his two honor's application essays earlier today and reviewed them before the call. He took my advice from last time and made the suggested changes. They turned out very well. He's going to submit them tonight before the deadline. We also discussed the basics of a cover letter. We agreed to meet again next week to review his first draft."
"The student and I reviewed his Finance homework over Chapters 4 and 5. The topics covered included present value, net present value, IRR, and incremental IRR."
