Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student worked through his first homework of the semester. He seemed to be doing well with the material, but it is hard to say since it is mostly review."
"We covered the final term paper assignment - PowerPoint slides to match the report. We also reviewed advanced concepts of product launching, placement, promotional options, push-pull marketing programs, etc."
"Today the student and I worked on a large project for her marketing class. Much to my delight, the project involves one of my favorite restaurants and the creation of marketing plans for the location. This project is a group assignment and we were able to create a substantial outline for her portion. We scheduled our next meeting for Sunday and as soon as she is finished writing, we planed for some proof reading as well."
"Today, the student and I continued to review a sample quiz in order to reinforce his understanding of concepts related to production costs and the evaluation of these costs. We reviewed questions related to the "u-shaped" average total cost curve and how the decreasing portion demonstrates economies of scale - as quantity produced increases, average total costs decrease (and he also understood how the increasing portion represents diseconomies of scale - as quantity produced increases, average total costs increase), the identification of the marginal and average fixed cost curves, the relationship between marginal cost and average total cost, and the optimal, efficient point of production (the minimum average total cost point)."
"Worked on project involving fast food Corporation. Finished SWOT analysis. Discussed and documented innovations involving menu enhancements, restaurant style service, and kiosk. The student shows good interest and is eager to participate."
"We covered the student's marketing plan project in terms of deciding a topic, the format, and the due date. He needs to find out if he will have the latitude to modify the format a bit as long as he covers all the topics and material that the professor expects."
