Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today we went over some proportion problems. We discussed the different formulas for these types of problems and key words that would identify them. I gave her multiple problems to work on throughout our session to help her identify the correct formula and the necessary procedures for solving them. We reviewed confidence intervals and Null and Alternate Hypothesis. We worked on identifying the type of problem and what specifically the problem is asking is what she struggles with the most."
"The student and I previewed the second to last topic in her statistics course: correlation. I explained the concept behind variation, walked her through how she might solve it (though I presume she will not have to solve for correlation from scratch), and previewed the idea of "goodness of fit." We used resources and practice problems from online, and she did well on problems exploring the concept of correlation. We ended the session by discussing what steps she needs to take so that she may pass her class. In upcoming meetings, we will begin preparing for her final exam."
"The student and I reviewed calculating the least squares regression from data points. We also discussed error and predicting with a linear model. We discussed the differences between one way and two way anova. We created a plan of attack for preparing for the final. I have a list of topics to prepare review sheets for the next session."
"The student and I reviewed for his upcoming chapter test. We worked through most of the chapter review in the book. He is able to work through most of the problems with little assistance."
"We worked on algebra equations solving three equations with three unknowns. The student understood concepts well, even if the process took time. We also worked on the factoring packet, which went quickly. Finally, we finished up by reviewing some chemistry homework involving isotopes and Dalton's theory of the atom."
"We spent part of the time going over item response theory and some of the elements that distinguish it from classical test theory. She stated that she had a firmer grasp of some important concepts at the end of our session."
