Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student and I covered decision trees and worked through several examples of these, and worked on further practice problems using linear regression models. For next time, he will continue to work on practice problems, and we will cover any questions that arise before the final review session."
"The student and I went over the most recent section he had covered in class - comparing two independent samples. We went through all the practice problems in the section, and he seemed to have a good understanding of the concepts."
"We started a new section dealing with polynomials and synthetic division, which he understood quite easily. He was noticeably happy at the end of the 2 hours."
"We reviewed past practice tests and concepts. We also reviewed binomial distribution and geometric distribution problems. We devised the main differences between both via definition and concepts. We broke down all equations and variable incorporating the concepts of binomial and geometric distribution. We reviewed mean and standard deviation formulas to be utilized in word problem analysis. I assigned homework to finish last six problems of practice test and review chapter 8 in order to prepare for upcoming test and quizzes."
"During this session, I prepared my client for a test that she will be taking on Thursday the 20th of March. The test will be focused on integration by parts and finding volume. She understood latter part of the test material, and only needed help in understanding integration by parts. I explained it to her thoroughly, and worked out many examples to ensure that she had better grasp of the material. After I was done explaining, I gave her some problems to work on her own. She followed the right procedures in answering these problems. I gave her hints on what to do and she figured it out by herself. By the end of session, I was certain that she understood the material very well and with extra practice she will alright for her test."
"The student's homework this week centered around probability. We worked through all the types of problems that he might see in his first two homework assignments. He grasps this material very well. I did not assign him any additional work because he has plenty of homework left to do in the class. His test is going to be the week after spring break so we are discussing maybe having a session at the tail end of spring break."
"We completed ten problems from his area + volume review sheet. I believe that he has a great understanding of the material. Later, I created a video explaining each of the problems step-by-step."
"We went over an extra credit problem that dealt more in logic than statistics. By the end of the problem, she understood the steps and was able to repeat back to me how we pieced together the solution. We then talked about chapter 7 to prepare for her test, and I asked her about different concepts. We briefly went over the end of the chapter. I asked that for next time she complete one or both of the cumulative AP tests in the book and come with questions. I believe her problem thus far has been not knowing the first step to take on a question, so this will be our focus in the last few sessions before the final."
"We went over material for her test tomorrow. The student seemed to understand what she got wrong when I tested her on the material for the test. I hope that me helping her with preparing for her test tomorrow has a great positive effect on her grade for the test."
"Started an extra credit review packet for the final exam. While it was long and we could not complete it fully, we will continue it in our next session. The student needs help with remembering hypothesis testing, and we will go over it in detail as well."
"We specifically covered Linear Regression lines and its applications to real life scenarios (Ex: # of ice creams ate depends on the temperature outside). After a brief overview of this section, she went straight into doing her homework. She has done a great job understanding this chapter as this was her best performance yet. Overall, the session was excellent."
"We reviewed many specific review questions and test questions. Since we were reviewing the whole course, we didn't spend too much time on any one topic. We covered Chi-square tests, linear regression, probability theory, and other types of tests. The review of probability seemed the most helpful, because those types of problems are easy to work through once you understand the basics."
