Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student worked through her homework assignment. Topics covered include an introduction to permutations and combinations."
" We worked through most of the unit review questions. The student is really starting to get a feel for the material, and is, therefore, more confident as we make our way through the exercises."
"Reviewed for Statistics test; covered Sect. 5.1: Randomness, Probability, Simulation and Sect. 6.1: Discrete Random Variables."
"Today's session introduced the concept of continuous probability distributions. In particular, we focused on the binomial distribution and normal distribution."
"In today's session, the student and I worked on economic base analysis, basic employment, location quotients, and population ratio analysis."
"We reviewed topics covered last week. The student walked me through a two problems each covering conditional probabilities and tree diagrams. His grip on both subject matters solidified as we talked and it was obvious that he'd internalized the topics we'd decided to put on his personal "tip sheet." We had several breakthroughs in variable algebra. He got a grip on how to approach basic variable factoring by visually identifying common factor variables between terms, how to "pull out" (factor) those factors, and how to check his work by working backward after he thinks he has arrived at an answer. He shared that he now feels like he can address a problem involving variable factoring. We also went through a homework packet for his math class, which focuses on college entrance exam-type math. He is generally solid on those problem types, but we will reinforce his grip on division by fractions."
"During this review we had stats practice for her stats final. If she takes her time and works carefully, she should do very well."
"We covered chapters 13 in the book and briefly looked at chapter 15. The student is preparing for his final exam."
"Geometric and binomial distributions. We discussed the difference between the two and applied the binomial distribution to multiple questions given to the student on a worksheet. She seemed to grasp the concept quite easily and without much difficulty was able to apply the formulas to applications."
"We went over Chapter 7 to Chapter 9 of the Statistics textbook to prep for a test tomorrow, covering subjects on normal probability distribution, binomial distribution, and constructing confidence interval. I explained the main concepts, and the student took notes on important formulas and followed by solving highlighted problems on each session. We got to cover the key concepts and her main confusions."
"Student needed additional explanation on the final project for her class. We went over the project together."
"We continued to go over his test review, working more on confidence intervals, standard deviation, variation, and z and t tests. He gets a better grasp with every practice problem we do."
