Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered the addition and multiplication rules of probability. We also covered independent events as well as mutual exclusivity. The student was struggling with "given" statements, as well as the converse probability. The student was optimistic and worked hard at grasping the content. I recommended working on the general formulas and tried a step-by-step guide to approaching problems."
"Went over significance testing, particularly with the main forms of z and t testing. We made sure she learned to identify proportions with the z test and means with the t test. I then proceeded to show her the commands on the calculator that allowed her to do such operations and how to input the required information. After going through a couple of examples together, I had her try out some test questions. We then moved on to two sample/proportion and paired tests, and made sure she was able to identify them based on background information."
"The client needed help with homework on t-tests. We started at the beginning and defined what t-tests do. All of her examples were for one-sample t-tests. We wrote out hypotheses, practiced looking up critical values, calculated t-test statistics, made decisions about rejecting the null hypotheses, and wrote up results. She had 3 problems like this. Then we practiced calculating confidence intervals based on a sample mean. She now has step by step instructions for all of the steps above."
"The student finished up his project, which included linear regression and analysis of two different variables. He got most of the concepts, but just wanted a guide to refresh and help him make sure he was getting everything correct."
"The student wanted to spend this week reviewing for his final exam. During this session, we covered the concept of a hypothesis test and when to use it. We focused on problems that conducted hypothesis tests for population proportions. In our remaining sessions, we will cover hypothesis tests for means and variations."
"Concepts covered with the student were calculating confidence intervals, testing hypotheses and modeling data by the linear, quadratic, exponential, power, and logarithmic functions and using them to make predictions."
