Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today, we covered monetary and fiscal policy in preparation for a test the student has tomorrow. I think she was doing well with the practice questions she encountered in our session today. I expect she will do well on her test. She did enjoy seeing how well she was doing the practice questions. I got a copy of all scores/grades so that I can see what she has left to turn in as well as what we need to do to improve her grade going forward. Little by little she is getting caught up in class, and I don't think she will fall behind in the same way again going forward."
"The student and I went over his goals and his struggles. We started by collecting materials that we will review and his textbook. We started to review his second midterm (producer theory), and I explained each of the questions he got wrong and helped him learn new ways to think about and approach the questions. The student had a good attitude; he seems eager to do well on his final exam and confident that we will be able to get him there. We will meet again in a few days, and he will be sending his other exams and problem sets for me to look at before we begin covering those."
"In our session today we covered 2 problems and a bonus problem. Each one offered an opportunity to review regression basics, including the equation, dependent and independent variables, the intercept, the coefficients, how to handle categorical or dummy variables, a correlation matrix, and residual plots. We have one more session planned for tomorrow in order to help the student prepare for an upcoming test on unit 3."
"Tonight we went over some of the student's homework - she was feeling motivated because she got a 100 on her paper, and so we were able to get through a lot of material. She was able to figure out the answers to a lot of the questions on her own, which was great. She is doing well in her economics course!"
"We went over classified balance sheets and accrual adjustments for investments, accounts receivable and accounts payable."
"We covered several topics from calculus. In particular, we reviewed limits of various functions, finding derivatives, and the average rate of change. We then went over a problem set the student had. He initially had difficulty with some of the concepts, but overall, he ended the session with a good understanding of the material."
