Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed the final information one more time and went over various topics the student's professor gave her. She did a great job of going through the information and asking any last-minute questions. It was a pleasure working with her throughout the semester, and it was great to watch her progress."
"We went over problem sets from the student's class in preparation for his final exam this afternoon. Topics covered included price discrimination, social welfare calculation and the distinctions between monopoly, oligopoly, monopolistic competition, and perfect competition. We went over charts and diagrams for finding equilibrium prices and quantities under the different models, which the student may be expected to reproduce on the test. We also went over some fairly complicated math for a problem set question concerning monopolistic competition."
"Today we went over marginal propensity to consume, multiplier effects on fiscal policy, initial and total effects of taxes, initial and total effects of government spending, contractionary fiscal policy, expansionary fiscal policy, theory of liquidity, interest rate sensitivity, investment accelerator, and long run effects of money supply changes. The student understood some of these concepts and will continue to do his reading to reinforce his knowledge. I quizzed him on shifters of SRAS, LRAS, and AD. He got about half right. I will continue to teach him about the causes of those shifts so that he feels more comfortable tackling such problems."
"The student and I had a great initial session, and we first reviewed a discussion question related to real capital GDP, economic improvements in the standard of living within developing countries, and the more solid impact of improvements in the area of knowledge and technology to increase the standard of living within countries. I was able to find a source of sample questions and problems (and will continue to try to access more) with the original intent to review what questions may have been missed on the last test. However, we primarily focused on questions related to her upcoming test and placed an emphasis on calculations related to unemployment. I am forwarding a set of notes to her and additional questions from Chapter 10."
"The student and I reviewed economics practice exam 1, WTP and price related concepts and applications, demand and supply curves, elasticity, movements along the curve, shifts in the curve, and conjoint analysis."
"The student and I walked through highlights of Chapters 19 and 20 study guides and discussed journal entry style and topics. The student will study chapter 20 and collect thoughts for a journal entry. In our next meeting they will flesh out the journal entry and we will discuss the quiz."
