"I had the student work on his Finance review. Topics covered included market exchange rate, arbitrage profit, loss/profit, options, and market derivatives."
"Student is very interested in learning more about financial models and asset valuations. I found him o be a very engaging student and knowledgeable about various topics of which he is interested in studying. I imagine that he will prove successful as we have further sessions. He wants to work on a project and we will use our sessions to build on the progress of his project. We discussed an outline for his project and we will pick up next week on his progress and go from there."
"We covered applications of real options, net present value, and capital budgeting. The student is very engaged and wants to learn the material versus knowing how to insert numbers into a formula and solve. He was eager to learn the material ahead of time before attempting future homework assignments. His professor will provide practice problems for our next session."
"The student and I covered converting percentages to fractions and vice versa. She is vision impaired so mostly she is just struggling with the practical aspects of completing her assignments, other than that she is doing great! She is a great lady and she comes to all of our sessions enthusiastic and ready to learn! I asked her to try to get ahead on her Business mathematics course before our next session. We completed her daily math assignment together. She is a total inspiration to me! She does not let her impairment keep her from pursuing her education and her passions, and I'm really excited to be working with her. Awesome lady!"
"The student and I were able to work through a detailed problem involving the calculation of price and efficiency variances (focusing on direct materials) as well as the calculation of price/wage and efficiency variances (focusing on direct labor). I listed the formulas, and he was able to also compare and reference them with the listings in the textbook. In addition, we completed the required journal entries as well, and he obtained a better understanding of favorable vs. unfavorable variances, and whether or not they should be debits or credits within each entry. As a side note, we also initially reviewed his progress in tax accounting, and he is performing well!"
"This was a productive first session. We covered many subjects including ordinary least squares, linear regression, using summation notation, understanding mathematical symbols and functions, dependent and independent variables, logarithms, and averaging for regression. The student was very capable and understood core concepts. More practice and familiarity with problems will help with tests. "
