My approach is to identify where the student is having problems: either with the applied side of a problem or with the theoretical. If it is with the applied side, I endeavour to aid the student with figuring out the computer package and answering the problem(s). Then, I analyze the output with the student in order to allow them to write up the results of their work. If it is on the theoretical side, I determine with the student exactly where they are having problems and then proceed with a review of the necessary course material and background, Then, I guide the student to applying this in the solution of the problem.

Excellent! I will defer to my daughter whom is at Mount Allison taking a Summer Class in Macro Economics during a period where the Professor has sort of checked out during Covid. My impression- here's the textbook, Here's some worksheets to turn in, and there will be an exam. I believe Juliet has been very helpful to my daughter. I am writing this before the end of the adventure. Her exam is on 5 September 20. Fingers crossed..
Everything went well with Jocelyn. I find her to to be bright and hardworking.
