Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student and I focused on Globalization, going through her PowerPoint and reading from class to analyze the concepts and theories in more detail. She identified examples of each main topic within Globalization, then we analyzed the reading for the author's perspective, main ideas, key turning points in the move toward globalization, and relevance to the main theories discussed in class. Next time we will dive into Liberalism and Mercantilism, two related theories of economic globalization."
"Today the student and I prepared for her exam tomorrow. We went over Ricardian comparative advantage, endowment economies, production economies, imports/exports, and trade analysis. She was very attentive and an excellent student!"
"Today we covered course goals, and then we studied class materials for Macroeconomics. We discussed production functions, Y = AF(K, N), definitions and used mathematics using data sets. The definitions included, factors of production, Marginal Product of Capital (MPK), and Marginal Product of Labor (MPN). It was a productive session and the student remained focused and motivated."
"Today, the student began to work on the assignments that she must undertake to catch up on the work she missed at the start of the semester. In particular, she is working on the management assignments and economics concepts that she has missed, in order to catch up in those classes ASAP!"
"We covered a lot: rival, nonrival, excludable non-excludable, supply, demand, social surplus, and began getting into the details of CBA. All in all, he was a pleasure to tutor and was eager to learn. I wish I had more time with him before his exam. He really got the hang of the material."
"We covered all topics reviewed so far, specifically focused on externalities and types of goods, as well as how the supply/demand curves shift or move. The student seems to struggle with graphical interpretation and with the creation of logical arguments. We will cover that next session. She had an overall positive mindset but seemed stressed about upcoming test anxiety. Strategies for test taking included use of mapping out an exam and focusing on the easy questions with no partial credit first. "
