Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Practiced for upcoming math test with addition/subtraction/multiplication/division of integers, as well as coordinate plane practice. Performed very well!"
"For Student 1, I helped him first w/ his homework, which was on inequalities and graphing them on a number line. I then went over a Cartesian coordinate graph and how to find coordinates on the graph (which he quickly remembered how to do ). I then had him solve inequalities algebraically and graph those on a number line. I was impressed that he remembered that when you divide by a negative number in an inequality, that you have to switch the signs of the inequality. He is a serious student and is clearly intelligent and talented. With Student 2, we spent most of the time going through decimals. First, we did subtraction with decimals, which he did quite easily. Then, we did division with decimals. He only needed a bit of direction on this and was able to do quite well after that. Finally, we did an activity in a reading comprehension book he brought that included a series of questions on a book based on what was contained in the table of contents. Again, he did a nice job with this activity. He is energetic, inquisitive, and supremely confident in his abilities as a student."
"Discussed geometry and physics. The student completed his science homework for the week, and finished his mathematics homework with excellent aplomb."
"Today we finished a discussion of the logit and probit, and went on to heteroskedasticity and how to correct for it, covering topics such as how to check for heteroskedasticity, White robust standard errors, and weighted least squares"
"The student and I started working on hypothesis testing. We talked about what hypothesis testing looks like in a problem with two data sets. This session we focused on four different tests for difference, primarily spending our time on the second and fourth. These tests allowed us to determine the difference between two experimental groups. We reviewed the difference between the rejection region approach to hypothesis testing and the 95%CI approach. Overall, she did very well and seemed able to determine when to use which test."
"We worked on planning how to solve problems using hypothesis tests, including choosing which test to use, defining hypotheses, and finding data to use in the formulas."
