Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed his discussion and homework for the week. I also reviewed a paper he needed help on and we went through it in detail. Very productive session!"
"We completed the student's questions about her last homework and worked through her final review packet. Very bright and attentive student, enjoyed working with her!"
"Covered and reviewed section 3 homework and completed part of section 4 on comparing means and establishing statistical parameters."
"The client is taking introductory statistics and needed help getting started. Today is the first day of her online class. The first thing she did was send her homework assignments and we realized that she'll be using Excel. I walked her through the process of installing the Data ToolPak, which is a data analysis add on that must be manually added to the program. Then, we read through the assignment and I showed her how to complete it. It was basically about creating a data set and running descriptive statistics such as the mean, median, mode, and elements such as skewness and kurtosis. We scheduled a follow up session for tomorrow."
"Today we reviewed the student's homework assignment for unit 6 on hypothesis testing and confidence interval calculations. This assignment also included information on Type I and Type II error- so we discussed the differences. The student struggles a bit with where to start on a problem and how to writing answers in the context of the problem. The first issue can be solved with more practice problems. The second we will work on next time by creating fill in the blank sentences."
"The student worked on a regression assignment and a time series assignment using Excel. He generally had a pretty good handle on what he needed to do for these assignments, so the session went smoothly."
