Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

The student and I worked through challenging concepts in her consumer behavior class. Specifically, we worked on understanding value ratio, classical conditioning, operant conditioning, diminishing marginal utility, and opportunity costs.

We continued Chapter 11 dealing with the differences of private property vs common property. Went over Common resources, rivals, and other negative externalities. At the end of the session we went over 5 sample test questions in preparation for his exam.

I met with the student for two hours last night, and we went through his micro review packet for his final exam. We discussed Cobb-Douglas Utility Functions, and finding optimum quantities in terms of prices and income. We also discussed how to calculate price and income elasticity of demand using the optimum values of q. We also discussed how businesses find profit maximizing levels of output under perfect competition and monopoly. We worked on solving an equilibrium model given aggregate supply and aggregate demand with and without taxation, and used Total Cost functions to find a delightful variety of other cost functions.

The first student and I worked on his Language Arts homework dealing with personification. We worked on trying to find lyrics in a song that used personification, and then he had to depict those lyrics in a document. We talked about why the lyrics were specifically personification, and then came up with ideas to depict them. The second student and I worked on her long division and simplifying fractions.

The student finished the homework over chapter 12 and 13 that covered: marginal/total revenue, total/marginal costs, the curves associated with marginal/total costs and revenue, average total costs, break even point, social cost, social benefit, price discrimination, and perfect competition.

In yesterday's session we started preparing for the student's final. We went over the earlier chapters that we had not previously covered and were on her second exam. She did pretty well with this stuff. It came more easily to her than the previous material we had covered. We plan on meeting today to go over that stuff.

We finished the homework assignment that we started on Thursday- It dealt with drawing detailed supply and demand graphs and showing what happened to the equilibrium price and quantity due to the shifts. We also went over in depth the difference between shifts of the supply and demand curves and movements along them.

The student voiced an interest in focusing on the later portions of her slides that I had requested she provide me prior to our session. We began with long run average costs, but decided that beginning with short run (which is included on her midterm) would be more inclusive to ensure we covered all of the material. We discussed the differences, the calculations, and the intuition behind profits, revenue, and costs. With the focus on total cost, total fixed cost, total variable cost, average fixed cost, average variable cost, and average cost. We did not get to covering the relationship between these costs, but did cover the intuition and mathematical derivations behind understanding the cost function.

The student and I reviewed chapter 15 in his textbook, as well as the teacher's PowerPoint slides from class. We then went over a worksheet of practice problems. We covered positive and negative externalities, interest rates, cost disease, and monopolies versus free markets.

Worked on indifference lines and mapping, the budget line, and how to derive a products demand curve from the budget line and the indifference curves. They will be working on more questions and will email notes about the work to me tomorrow.

The student was engaged and very willing to learn the concepts behind microeconomic theory. We worked on cost curves marginal and average long term and short term. Also worked on exercises on economic profit and accounting profit. Will schedule a session for Monday morning to meet on statistics.

This was our first session. We reviewed the last several chapters in the course, including Game Theory, Elasticity, and Market Equilibria. The student did poorly on her first midterm, but her professor has allowed her second midterm to overwrite her last score. During our next session we plan on doing more targeted review in preparation for the second midterm.

How can a Executive Functioning tutor from Varsity Tutors help you master Executive Functioning?

What is Executive Functioning?

Executive functioning is a term used in educational psychology to describe the cognitive processes that drive organization, planning and rule acquisition. Executive Functioning is the ability to regulate ones sensory experiences across a vast array of different disciplines and environments.  It promotes the learners ability to organize, engage, and integrate all areas of learning in and outside of the classroom environment. When students struggle with executive functioning, they are often disorganized, have difficulty planning ahead, don’t follow through on expected tasks, and/or give up on tasks easily.

By offering tutoring for Executive Functioning, Varsity Tutors helps the learner to increase processing speed, emotional well-being, self-regulation of attention, and organization of current and new tasks.

This sounds like my child. Should I be concerned?

Difficulty with executive functioning is common among school-age children. Organizational skills and study habits are not consistently taught in school settings, so children often rely on their own instincts for how to handle organizational tasks, homework, test preparation and other significant aspects related to academic success. Every child handles these aspects differently; if your child is struggling in any of the following areas, Varsity Tutors can help:

  • Using an assignment notebook
  • Taking complete, useful notes in class
  • Completing assignments fully and on-time
  • Completing long-term projects fully and on-time
  • Preparing for quizzes and tests by studying (separately from doing homework)
  • Scheduling time each day for homework and studying outside of school
  • Sticking to pre-made schedules for school and non-school related tasks
  • Breaking down tasks into manageable pieces

How does Varsity Tutors help students overcome these issues?

Our experienced directors in Houston, TX begin by assessing the specific areas in which your child is struggling by asking specific questions that pinpoint difficulties. Once we have established the areas to work on, ourHouston directors will select a tutor who can provide individualized, one-on-one instruction that will support your child’s development in these areas.

How can I monitor progress in Executive Functioning?

There are three easy ways that parents can monitor their child’s progress:

  • Be a part of the solution: Monitor your child’s assignment notebook, backpack and grades every day. Parents who are involved and ask questions help their children to stay on track.
  • Be a motivator: Keep an eye on your child when they study or work on school-related tasks. Praise any improvement you see your child making verbally. This will keep your child motivated while keeping you informed of their progress.
  • Ask questions: Speak with your child’s tutor, teachers, coaches, and any other adults that your child works with on a regular basis. Ask them if they see improvements in the specific areas that your child is working to improve. Their input is very valuable to measuring your child’s success.
