Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The students had trouble understand graphing functions of sine and cosine. We went over phase and vertical shifts. By the end of the session, they had a great understanding of the material, and I hope they do well on their test."
"The first session with the student went quite well. We jumped right into his exam review sheet and dealt with the conceptual framework. With respect to the framework, we dealt with the assumptions and principles. As a prelude to the Revenue Recognition principle, we defined cash basis accounting and accrual basis accounting. We then tackled the revenue recognition & matching principles. Adjusting entries consumed the rest of the time. We worked the adjusting entry problem on the test review. I also suggested that he do the originally assigned homework from the chapter, and we will discuss it next time."
"The student and I went over fluid dynamics and calculus. In fluid dynamics, we talked about the Cartesian diver and the physics behind it. We also discussed Bernoulli's principle. In calculus, we talked about finding derivatives through limits, and the mathematics behind canceling h and plugging in zero. He is a smart student, and I expect him to perform well in his classes."
"The student and I worked on Work today. Work is a physics concept measuring force over a distance. Calculus can be used in the form of integrals when the force being applied is not constant over time. We practiced some word problems together."
"The student and I covered the weighted average cost method for valuing and accounting for inventory. She actually did not struggle with the concepts once we reviewed. She worked through the examples and sample problems very well. She was engaged and attentive during the session, displaying a positive attitude toward the material reviewed. She ended up gaining mastery of the subject matter."
"The student and I went over some homework problems on basic transactions (journal entries and effects on accounting equation). We plan to finish these problems tomorrow and complete a review of basic accounting topics."
