Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"She is an extremely motivated student needing help with some aspects of statistics. In this session, we reviewed the homework assignment that she has to submit tonight for her course. During our session, we covered how to calculate a confidence interval and a margin of error. We discussed the differences in terminology as well as how the formulas differ in regards to using a mean vs a proportion. Finally, we did some null hypothesis problems in which the z score had to be calculated and interpreted in the context of the problem. I left the session feeling that she understood the material and continues to improve."
"We went over two different homework sets- numbers 8 and 9. Set 8 focused on t-tests, and 9 focused on correlations. There is only one more unit left and a final exam."
"The student informed me that he did well from the test. However, the teacher took off points due to student not showing appropriate amount of work. I advised him to learn from the experience and be mindful of it going forward. We proceeded to work on the next chapter."
"The student and I met to go over the final part of his statistics project - data analysis and conclusions. During this session we discussed the implications of the confidence interval we calculated for the difference in declined credit score means from January to May. The project didn't require any type of formal overview or speculation as part of the conclusion, so we were able to wrap up after discussing how the test results are used, and what the numbers can and cannot tell us."
"We had one of our better sessions today. The student sent me some pages about probability laws she was working on and we spent the whole time on those and discrete distributions. She seemed to follow along well today. We will likely meet again by the end of the week."
"We covered topics from probability, algebra, and geometry. We covered probability problems, estimating the mean from various distributions, and solving algebraic and geometric problems. While unsure of the material at first, the student quickly grasped an understanding and worked through the problems."
