Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session, the student and I reviewed her homework assignment due Wednesday regarding ANOVA tables and variance. We also did this in preparation for her test on Wednesday."
"Today we continued with ANOVA, but this time focused on repeated-measures designs. We discussed what this means conceptually, as well as longitudinal designs and their benefits and limitations. We went over how to interpret reported statistics in an example study, including how figures like graphs can misrepresent actual results. The student is doing well with the general concepts we have been covering, and is making quick progress through the course."
"Our final session was to prepare the student for completing her final exam. We went through problems from her last assignment so that she would be prepared. We went through material covering confidence intervals, distributions, and hypothesis testing. She has picked up on statistics well this Summer session."
"I assisted the student with preparation for her final examination--we reviewed hypothesis testing, construction of confidence intervals, using confidence interval bands to determine a minimum sample size, and converting normal distributions to standard normal distributions in order to calculate various probabilities. It was a pleasure to work with her!!"
"We covered the binomial distribution and sampling distributions. The student has had difficulty understanding the previous material, so we will have an overview of that material along with the more complicated topics."
"Today the student and I went over his homework for the next module in his class, covering mean, median, mode, as well as variance and standard deviation. He had no trouble with the mean, median, mode problems but got thrown when it came to standard deviation. Much of his confusion seemed to stem from an example that had the same value for the mean and sample size, which confused him when using it for reference. After we cleared that up and discussed the nomenclature and symbols and their meanings, he had very little trouble solving the remaining problems."
