Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered Chi-squared test for independence and homogeneity. The student wanted help distinguishing between the meaning of the two even though the calculation is the same. We also discussed surveys, experiments, and observational studies in more detail."
"We continued reviewing the material of the course. We spent a long time on dummy variables, interaction terms, and their influence on regression lines. We discussed extrapolating coefficients from regression lines in the presence and absence of interactions and dummies."
"Today we covered the Central Limit Theorem. The student provided his scores/grades to note progress. We also worked through example problems provided in the book he has."
"Today we continued with the preparation for the student's midterm. We covered an entire unit on probability and permutations. We did all the problems in the unit while spending time on each problem to help her understand the basic concepts. We'll continue on Thursday."
"This lesson we covered binomial statistics and their application. There were slight problems with minor mathematical errors, but overall the concepts were understood. No new major scores to indicate progress, overall consistent homework and quiz performance. No extra practice, but we began review earlier chapters to go over recollection of formulas and concepts. No concerns"
"We covered two sample t-tests and confidence intervals for the difference between two means. We also covered confidence intervals for proportions as well. The student had some trouble recognizing when to use different tests, so next week I will show her a breakdown to identify the proper test. Once we decided which test to use she was good at solving the problem."
"Reviewed sections 4.3, 4.4, and 4.5 and the HW in each section: log functions, exponential and natural log (ln) functions, graphing and transformations as well as algebraic method. The student is very hardworking, and got an A on his last test and As on recent quizzes, so great work."
"First we worked on one of her homework assignments. Her assignment was on sequences and how to find their sums using Gauss, Euclid, or summations. We ended by studying work that involved solving trig equations (in particular quadratic ones)."
"The student and I wrapped up our prep for his final back where we initially began working together: finding Lagrange multipliers and using them to determine maximum and minimum values. After our practice today, he showed considerable improvement in using Lagrange multipliers, and he is much more confident about tonight's exam."
"The student has a test on Wednesday for Algebra 2 and wanted to be prepared. We spent the full hour and a half reviewing and doing example problems. She drew and filled in the unit circle three times, and we went over examples from her textbook and worksheets. The main focus of the review was the trigonometric values of 45-45 and 30-60-90 triangles. I am confident that she will do well on the test. Her mistakes on the quizzes were very minute, and were only counted wrong due to small errors."
"In this session, we reviewed the chapter on probability in preparation for the chapter test. We worked through the last 3 sections of the book that we did not work on last session, then went through the review questions and the sample exam in the book."
"We covered the rules for multiplying and dividing exponents as well as raising an exponent to a power. We also covered fractional exponents, finding the inverse of a function, plotting both the function and its inverse and finding the points of intersection, finding f(g(x)) and g(f(x)) in two different ways, and how to determine the domain and range of a function. I left both students about 20 problems having to do with the rules for exponents for extra practice."
