Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"This student and I had a great initial session, and he indicated that the review was very helpful. We reviewed several outlines with content related to topics such as scarcity, marginal decision making, economic resources, the PPF (and evaluation of efficiency, what is attainable), absolute vs. comparative advantage, opportunity cost, supply and demand, movement vs. shifts, equilibrium, and consumer/ producer surplus."
"We reviewed approximately five assignments together. The sections included consumer price index, measuring a nation's income, and the Unit I exam. The student had some issues with the calculations in consumer price index. She understands GDP and GNP well and felt more confident in those sections. We covered a ton of material in our time, and she worked hard the entire time. She made over a 96 on every assignment that we looked over. She did well and completed the section with exchange nearly without help."
"We reviewed the AD/AS model and the impacts of monetary and fiscal policy on the dependent variables of inflation, unemployment, output, etc. We also touched on the balanced budget multiplier and the Phillips curve. The student showed a high level of engagement in the material and understanding of what the models represented. He seemed to get genuinely excited in our macroeconomic discussion, giving reasonable expectations of overall success in his course."
"We went through two of the PowerPoint lessons the student had. The main focus of the two lessons was understanding consumer and producers surplus, especially as they are shown on a graph. She made excellent progress, and by the end, she was able to interpret graphs and discuss changes in surplus."
"Went over her review sheet from her final. Discussed expansionary/contractionary fiscal policy, recessionary/inflationary gaps, autonomous spending, consumption function, etc. We plan to continue and work through this review in our remaining sessions to prepare her for her final exam."
"Went through about 10 questions on the test review sheet the student had from school. We reviewed general concepts about monopolies and profit maximization and discussed test strategy with the goal of passing."
