Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on his finance test. Topics covered included: calls, puts, intrinsic value, time value, debt/ equity ratios, share price, and shares outstanding."
"We worked through the first question of a long case study regarding rate sensitive assets and liabilities of a commercial bank specializing in real estate loans. He was extremely willing and eager to learn and requested copies of my notes to help him do well in his studies. We are going to continue our work on the case study later in the week."
"The student wanted to discuss the write up portion of her project. We broke down the capital budgeting analysis for their 3 marketing proposals and the project in general."
"We covered the basics of quadratic functions/equations. In general, the student seemed quite proficient when it came to the mechanics of basic algebra, but has some gaps in understanding the meaning of some of the things he is doing. My goal was to help him understand what he needs to do to solve each problem and remember which technique he must employ. Once he is on the right track with remembering how he needs to do something, he was almost always able to solve it flawlessly."
"The student and I covered Writing and Reading today. We spent the first half an hour working on improving paragraphs, practicing how to combine, move, and separate sentences. We spend the next half of class reading humanities passages, focusing on how to extrapolate conclusions or details from the text."
"We mainly reviewed what the student's current study strategies were and what she hopes to get from tutoring. Her plan for doing well in this class is to take handwritten notes, create flashcards, read ahead of time, and utilize the textbook quizzes, which are all important strategies. Our plan for tutoring sessions are that she will email me ahead of time if she has any specific areas she would like to review, and we'll cover those. Also I will create practice question sets for her to work with. For this session, we briefly reviewed decomposition, synthesis, exchange reactions, and identifying histology lab slides. She seems enthusiastic for the material and on top of her work so far. I will create mock terminology quizzes and send them to her as soon as possible."
