Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student needed help with homework in her Intro to Stats course. She had homework, and I walked her through how to complete it. She had to choose the proper statistical test (independent sample t-test, paired-sample t-test, and one-way ANOVA), run the tests, justify their use, and present the results."
"In this session, the student and I reviewed chapter 8. He took a test on Friday and will be given more time at the beginning of this week to complete it. We will have another session this Wednesday."
"Today I helped the student with a discussion question pertaining to how a small sample size can drastically affect the mean which in turn makes unusual data (less than 0.05) appear more often compared to a sample with a larger n. We then worked on a few problems involving using the z table to find the z score of a given percentile, using the z score to calculate the raw score, as well as problems about sampling distributions in reference to a population of interest."
"The student informed me that he would have a quiz on chapters 6.1 to 6.5 next Thursday. He was able to complete his homework assignment with relative ease. I helped him review for section 6.4 before the actual class."
"We covered problems related to confidence intervals and critical values. The student was struggling most with remembering the steps to do the problems, but the problems were all very similar, so we were able to practice them many times. It would be helpful for him to review the steps and continue practicing so that he is able to remember how to do these problems."
"I covered with the student drawing inferences about two means from independent samples (when sigma is known and when sigma is unknown) and calculating confidence intervals for the difference of two means."
