Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We discussed not only Type I and Type II errors, but the alpha (power) and beta associated with them. We discussed possible research projects she could apply her Statistics to in the field of pediatric medicine."
"The student and I met for the last time before her final. Once again, her final is on z-tests, t-tests, independent samples t-tests, and related samples t-tests. We had done all of the handouts given to her by her professor, so I picked several book problems to work on. We did two of each type of test together in the format of her professor's worksheets. She really started to catch on by the end of the session."
"The session focused on general probability, combinations, set theory (unions, intersection etc.), and conditional probabilities. The student showed signs of improvement in terms of solving probability problems and working with combinations."
"The student and I had an hour-long, online tutoring session to prepare for her test. We reviewed conditional probability and the geometric (calculating outcomes using a fair v. a "bent" coin). She received an A on her Statistics test at Brown University later that day, and has shown great improvement!"
"In this session, I covered Law of Large Numbers and the concept of Expected Values. I gave the definition of each and explained them in detail with examples. I also talked about some properties of expectation and demonstrated how they can be useful to solve the problems. I then lead her through her homework, mostly guiding her towards the correct approach."
"We wrapped up uniform distributions and began working on problems with the normal distribution and z scores."
