Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Tonight, the student and I reviewed recently covered material in preparation for her upcoming final. Specifically, we talked about monopolies and outcomes relative to perfect competition and barriers to entry."
"We concentrated this session on the concept of price elasticity of demand, how to calculate it, and its implications for revenue, using examples provided in the student's class. We went through the mathematical derivations while also explaining the intuitive concepts behind them. We agreed to follow up by email after the student has a chance to review her notes from the session."
"Today we went over definitions of supply and demand, law of diminishing marginal utility, laws of supply and demand, shifters of supply and demand, difference between demand shifts and changes in quantity demanded, double shifters, changes in equilibrium price and quantity, consumer surplus, producer surplus, disequilibrium, shortages, and surpluses. The student was very attentive, and he asked questions when he needed clarification or specific explanations."
"The focus of this session was an introduction to macroeconomic concepts. Online resources were used to illustrate key examples of economic concepts in regards to aid to third world country, and minimizing consumption of cigarettes. The explanation was clear and linear, which the student more easily understood and could answer questions about. Her answers to the reading questions are improving overall."
"The student and I did the entire Chapter 16 lesson and study questions together. I think this is the first time he's done this over two attempts at this class. He tends to rush through and skip parts; his objective is not to learn, but to get it done and be over it! Doing this lesson allowed me to coach him on self-instruction, which is very necessary in today's online learning environment. Slow down, read the entire question, take notes, review notes, verify answers. He absorbed the lesson very well. He has been tasked to go back and do study questions for Lessons 14 and 15, which he did not do last week within the required window of opportunity."
"The student and I first went over a discussion question that focused on the value of the dollar, and how a stronger or weaker dollar has impacted the United States. We took the time to identify several potential articles, and I provided suggestions. We then reviewed a number of sample questions related to Chapter 17 covering inflation, unemployment, and the natural rate of employment. I am forwarding notes to her for review."
