Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student worked on his Finance homework. Topics covered included the percent return on investment, margin requirements, maintenance margins, and margin calls. Next we worked on shorting shares, gain from sales, geometric mean, and the rule of 72."
"The student worked through an entire math section under timed conditions. We then reviewed all the problems he missed and discussed general strategies he could apply on the math section. I believe a 28 would be within his grasp with further application. This was our last session, so I have recommended he keep practicing full tests under timed conditions to work on strategy, as well endurance and time management."
"The student and I continued our discussion regarding yesterday's session while incorporating the following: labor force participation rate, real GDP vs. potential GDP, U3 unemployment vs. natural unemployment, the relationship between GDP and unemployment that shows - when real GDP is above potential GDP, U3 unemployment is greater than natural unemployment (and vice versa for both variables), the labor market supply and demand diagram, labor market equilibrium, quantity of labor demanded vs. supplied, demand for labor, supply of labor, diminishing returns, labor market equilibrium, etc."
"We covered review problems for midterm exam, including NPV, incremental cash flows, and portfolio standard deviations. The student will now practice these problems at home."
