Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed compound interest and future value. The student mostly just needed review and practice before her final tomorrow. She is always an enthusiastic learner and a pleasure to work with! I offered some shortcuts in her calculation to help her save time on her final exams. The steps still offer all of the needed calculations, but are a little more conducive to a time limit. The student is planning on reviewing the remainder of her course material prior to the start of her final. The student has done a great job overcoming the challenge of being a visually impaired learner in a class that has so many visual prompts. I'm really proud of her and I think she's going to do a great job on her final exam. Nice work!"
"The concepts covered today are extremely difficult to understand and the student did a wonderful job maintaining focus to comprehend the material. Mostly, we covered Ordinary Least Squares (OLS). We went over the 7 classical assumptions, linear models, error terms, coefficients, regression analysis, populations model vs. sample model, expected value or mean, serial correlation, variance, heteroskedasticity, standard normal distribution, collinearity and multicollinearity, and more. This was a demanding session, and the student did great to get through it all."
"The student and I had a great initial session. We focused on a chapter related to internal controls and cash management, and I provided assistance as he completed several multiple-step questions that covered the concepts of internal control, and also the role of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. He also successfully completed additional problems that required the identification of operating cash flows, and the completion of the bank reconciliation process. He did an excellent job! Finally, we briefly reviewed a problem from a previous chapter that involved adjustments, and I provided assistance in order to figure out how several corrections could be made."
"Topics reviewed included: Journal Entries pertaining to Intangibles, Balance Sheet presentation of Intangibles, Amortization of Intangibles, and Useful life vs. Legal life of Intangibles. Student shows a good understanding of the topics. Productive session."
"We covered her Chapter 4 on hypothesis testing. At first, she was not seeing the similarity with what she already knew from intro statistics, and then she started to get the hang of it and see where she knew the econometrics (she picked up on joint hypothesis testing quickly). She did well, and this will prompt her to finish reviewing the chapter."
"We reviewed sample average and standard error related concepts and definitions. Reviewed Z-value and p-value related definitions, concepts and formulas. Reviewed using N(0,1) accumulated probability distribution for hypothesis testing. Reviewed t-statistic and t-distribution related concepts, formulas and calculations. Reviewed significance level, degrees of freedom related concepts."
