Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I continued to work with the student on her college statistics course. We reviewed the chapter on confidence intervals, and I showed the student how to input data sets and have her calculator solve for standard deviation instead of doing all the steps manually."
"Today we finished covering chapter 7 and then began hypothesis testing although we had already done quite a bit with hypotheses so it wasn't too much."
"Today the student and I worked on P-values, Z-tests, T-tests, test statistics, and hypothesis testing. It went fairly well, and we were able to go through chapter 11."
"Today's session was about reviewing because finals are coming up. I uploaded a review sheet for the student to go through and pick out things she didn't remember. We went through limits and u-substitution integration. We also covered motion along a line and any other concept that student was iffy about. Overall, the student is strong in her calculus skills but still struggling with trig skills. Next week we will do some more review."
"Today the student and I worked on the material for her math quiz on Wednesday. We covered both Venn diagrams and the counting principle. Initially she was not too comfortable with either subject but we made sure to do a lot of practice problems and work through each one thoroughly. I assured her that she was competent in understanding the material and working through the different types of problems. I stayed a little bit later than usual today in order to finish an extra Venn diagram worksheet with her."
"We covered y=mx+b in word problems and from an entirely mathematical perspective (just numbers, no real life relationships). The student has a great attitude and based on the questions asked was really thinking critically. I showed the student all the variations of problems that arise in the word problems: two points only, a point and a slope, and a slope and a y-intercept etc. The student was then asked two interpret the math in terms of the linear relationships from the word problems, which is great for critical thinking."
