Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered standard deviation and regression analysis, including the interpretation of scatterplots and the regression formula. The student was easily understanding most of the concepts reviewed and recognized previous mistakes that he made. We went over a quiz that he has taken and reviewed material for his upcoming midterm. I familiarized him with the types of problems that he will most likely encounter on the midterm exam."
"Tonight, the student and I got started looking over some of her recent work on confidence intervals. We also looked ahead at her next unit over hypothesis testing. She said my explanations and assistance aided her understanding greatly."
"We covered hypothesis testing, statistical inference and chi-square tests. The student had a take home exam which she completed. She understood the concepts we discussed; she needs to be a little more attentive to working through the calculations to avoid numerical errors. She did very well on the exam."
"Reviewed confidence intervals and hypothesis testing. We need to find more conceptually challenging problems to prepare for the final exam, as well as to illustrate the differences between the confusing and overlapping terms for statistics and parameters. Some more practice problems were placed in a shared drive. It is recommended that we construct a comprehensive flow chart of all the statistics and parameters learned thus far and their relationships to each other."
"The client is taking introductory statistics as part of her undergraduate degree program. She needed to practice understanding the concepts behind ANOVA, and how to calculate chi square in Excel and interpret the results. She had homework problems from her text and we worked through them together. She also provided a study guide from her final exam and we went through the problems and discussed the concepts so that she's not just memorizing right answers, but understanding how to get there."
"Concepts that were covered: Null hypothesis, alternative hypothesis, z score, t-distribution. I gave the student concrete examples in order for him to understand and retain the information. He has improved significantly. He understands everything that I present. He has told me that everything is simple when I explain it. He was the only student in class who did great on his last exam. It is not what you teach but how you teach. It really makes a positive difference in our students."
