Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over some of her practice problems for chapter 9 and chapter 10. For chapter 9, we discussed how to use t-tests, z-tests, and the Chi Square to test null hypotheses. For chapter 10, we went over how to use the f-statistic and the average difference to construct confidence intervals and test hypotheses. The student excelled in constructing one-tail and two-tail null hypotheses and identifying variables."
"The student and I covered comparing population averages, both large and small. We practiced using the "observed statistic" method (p-value) and the "rejection region" method. We also practiced calculating confidence intervals on small populations. I think going over the odd problems first is helpful. She is gaining a stronger conceptual understanding of the material."
"This session we prepared for the student's trimester final in this course. We worked through several multiple choice practice tests for each unit covered during this period."
"We started at the beginning of the student's course material and reviewed unit 1. She was concerned because she didn't understand why she got some problems wrong, and we worked through explaining how to get the correct answer. We went through standard deviation and the proportion of the curve, along with basic graphing and boxplots. We will continue tomorrow into unit 2 and probabilities. Her spirits were high, and she seemed relieved to be understanding some of the content she was missing."
"I helped the student go over Section 4.8 homework. He struggled slightly with the materials as he was recently done with his test. I gave him a brief revision before going more into the materials."
"We covered linear regression and identification of hypothesis for testing. The student was having trouble with the applying these concepts. She was also having trouble with the ambiguity behind some test questions. I gave her a step procedure for solving engineering problems, which will help clarify test questions. I asked her to complete some additional practice problems."
