Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This was a pretty straightforward session, where we cleared up some concepts just before the exam. We went over specific questions with regards to bond yield to maturity formulas, bond yield expectations theory, liquidity preference theory, forward contract arbitrage opportunities, put-call parity and arbitrage, Black-Scholes model, and the implied volatility concept."
"We worked on a review of the student's natural gas project. We ran pairwise VAR regressions and interpreted the results. We used Granger causality tests to identify causal flow to the variable of interest, tested the integration level of the variable, tested the consistency of cointegration relation, took first differences of nonstationary variables, and conducted main, unrestricted VAR regression."
"We covered utility (total, marginal, consumer surplus, budget lines, and indifference curves) and began elasticity. We used the student's practice exam and some PowerPoint slides. In order to prevent second-guessing, we discussed thinking about the correct answer before looking at the multiple-choice questions."
"I reviewed the topics on a practice exam problem that dealt with the problems covered on the AP economics exam. We also watched a video that reviewed the contents of the exam. His attitude was fine. I did not include specific strategies. The win is that he understands most of the main concepts."
"We reviewed the math for the student's exam, including the marginal revenue and marginal cost, and then the externality questions as well as the paper for social choice. The student's exam is tomorrow in the evening, and they will work on some derivatives to prepare."
"Today the student and I went over a practice final exam in preparation for the real thing soon. Today was our last lesson, and I have greatly enjoyed working with her; she is very bright and will do great things in academic pursuits."
