Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The client is in introductory statistics and wanted to cover chi-square analysis. We went over a handout that I commonly use on this test statistic and then he applied it specifically to a homework problem in his book."
"We studied probability trees- regressions and general probability. The student's attitude was great, and I saw things click and connect in his mind, which was good to see."
"Tonight, we covered a lot of material. We went over different sampling techniques, and I helped edit a discussion response about simple random sampling and how random number generators limit bias. We also talked about correlation (what is positive, negative, weak, and strong). We discussed how to determine what r will be from a graph and how to read scatterplots."
"The student and I went over several practice problems for an upcoming exam. The focus was significance testing and specifically P-values. She is expected to show more work than students at other places, so it's a little slower-paced."
"The student and I spent the time reviewing the homework and started on a practice quiz. Right now we are trying to build up his page of notes so that he can tackle any problem he encounters. We are trying to help him visualize and conceptualize the different situations that arise."
"The student's teacher continues to move slowly, and I'm getting some very positive feedback that my help is catapulting her to the front of the class. She is in a statistics course where they haven't yet discussed Z tables."
