Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I spent this time solving for different variables in order to perform the correct hypothesis test for his project. We also spent time discussing how to manipulate data in order to get a random sample and avoid bias, so that he could include this description in his project."
"We looked at some problems the student was struggling with. They all had to do with hypothesis testing and creating confidence intervals. Much of her difficulty had to do with understanding how these two things are related, and how they are different. We discussed this in depth and she understood much better."
"We covered the basic probability principles. We worked through problems solving for the number of combinations that can be made of k objects from n total, and basic probability tables. The student was initially struggling with some of the concepts, but was coming along fine by the end of the session."
"The student and I went over probability and probability distribution. We covered the complement rule; the rules for "AND" and "OR" problems; and calculating the mean, variance, and standard deviation for probability distributions."
"Today the student and I covered hypothesis testing. We went over a worksheet he has been covering in class. Specifically, we looked at testing population proportions. We determined the appropriate decision to make about the hypothesis based on z-statistics, P-values and confidence intervals. He had a few more problems to cover for class on his own, and we will review those during our next session."
"Today the student and I went over box and whisker plots, shapes of data distributions, the empirical rule, Chebyshev's theorem, and also started going more into probability theory. I'm really proud of how quickly he is picking up the concepts that we are covering and think he is going to do great on his upcoming exam. There weren't many strategies that I could teach him besides key words that point towards the relevant equations/ concepts that he needs to use to answer a problem. More than anything, we focused on going through illustrative examples to give him a more concrete understanding of the concepts we were covering."
