Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I were able to review a homework activity that focused on inventory accounting concepts - LIFO vs. FIFO, as well as the weighted average method of inventory under a perpetual system, the calculation of balances, ending inventory and cost of goods sold, and the evaluation of lower of cost or market, etc. He did an excellent job!"
"The student and I concluded our discussion on the week 2 materials. We focused mostly on the statement of cash flows for the first portion of the session; then, we spent the latter half of the session on ratio analysis. Throughout, we did comprehensive practice problems to cement his understanding of the material. Although we went at a slow pace, I allowed the session to naturally progress so that he could understand the material at a deeper level."
"As per usual, we went over the student's homework for the week. Today, the subject matter all related to the resource-purchasing decisions firms make. Specifically, we went over demand and supply of labor, marginal product of labor, and marginal revenue."
"Today the student and I went over his exam that he took last week. Most of the mistakes he made involved supply and demand. Therefore, we drilled through supply and demand problems, talking about their shifts and subsequent price/quantity changes. His next exam is coming up, so we began to prepare for it."
"Today we continued working through the student's online homework for the course. Today the material covered monopolistic markets, including their features, cost curves, and inefficiencies. He learned how to calculate a monopoly's profits, the deadweight loss, the transfer of consumer surplus to producer surplus, and to find a monopoly's profit optimizing price and quantity."
"Today, the student and I reviewed topics related to the test she has tomorrow. These topics included, production possibilities curves, opportunity cost, and trade offs. We did not schedule the next meeting, instead referring to her contacting me when I am needed. I am confident she will do well on her assessment tomorrow."
