Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I met today to review an assessment that focused on Chapter 14, primarily "simple linear regression." We were required to develop a null and alternative hypothesis to evaluate slope significance, and in the process, we reviewed how to calculate/estimate the slope and y-intercept of a set of data points, as well as the t-statistic and p-value in order to form conclusions. We also used a regression line to estimate an outcome of "y" given a specific "x." He did a great job."
"The student and I were able to bounce some ideas off of each other to help her in her in-person interviews. She needed some help answering some value-based questions. We talked about how she should incorporate some personal stories into her interview. We talked for 15 minutes, and I am hopeful that she will feel more confident and hopeful in her next interview!"
"We specifically covered a case study review. The student was interested in the material. I showed him how to read graphs. I encouraged him to read the case and discuss it with his colleagues. I told him to stay ahead and review 100-400 level business terms."
"The student and I continued our discussion on inventory costing methods. This time, we did a couple of problems on valuation (lower-of-cost-or-market). She realizes that she has a hard time figuring out what information to use to solve a problem. I told her that I will show her an example of how to combat that issue in our next session; she has a better grasp of the concepts this time around."
"Tonight's session focused on simulations and optimization. Using the Analytic Solver Platform add-in for Excel, we worked through several problems finding minimax, minimum, and maximum solutions. We also worked with decision trees. The student did well setting up the problems and is going to work through additional problems before our next meeting."
"We went over hypothesis testing for his project. The student needed a little push in the right direction. I explained the reasons behind the test and why we use certain test statistics formulas. This was a great session!"
