Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The client is continuing to prepare for his Intro to Stats course. We have been going through all of the modules provided by his instructor. His class starts in about 2 weeks. Tonight we did some review and also further illustrated properties of the normal distribution and how alpha is related to risk and Type I and Type II errors. We also covered z-scores."
"We covered standard deviation, representations of data, frequency, and relative frequency. The student had struggled in class to fully understand what her professor was teaching in regards to standard deviation, and she asked me to explain the concepts to her. Once she heard it from me, she had a much better grasp on the process and concept behind standard deviation. She will let me know how she did on her homework from last week."
"Tonight, we went over a 2 sample independent t test with assumed equal variance, and we used the variance pooled method to calculate the standard error and the confidence interval. We talked about what the null and alternative hypothesis would look like for these problems and how the alt hypothesis will affect the number of tails used. We discussed the difference between t critical and t calculated and how to go about coming up with a decision regarding null hypothesis using the critical value method."
"We went over the Excel bar chart and histogram. The student became more familiar with Excel options and formatting. The rest of his homework will be extra practice, and on Monday, we will meet to go over any questions that gave him trouble in the homework. He got a 100% on the 1st homework, showing good progress. He is proactive in asking the teacher for feedback."
"I helped the student go over his review sheets and homework in preparation for the quiz the next day. He struggled with a few concepts such as logical interpretation and independent events, but managed to solidify his understanding of the concepts towards the end of the session."
"Today, we did final review on Roman numerals and expanded the student's view of numbers. I threw in some scientific notation for fun, so we could talk about something with practical relevance. I expect him to do well on his quiz tomorrow!"
