Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We continued to review hypothesis testing and cross-tabulations. We then went over the student's homework assignment. I gave him a quick tutorial and provided him some code to produce cross-tabulations. He is a quick learner and has a good feel for the material. At this point, he just needs more practice."
"During this session, we covered three sections from a chapter, including Z tests, T tests, and calculating population proportions. For each section we would go over general formulas and concepts, then complete the homework. The student was able to solve problems much more quicker by the end, with a much better understanding. She was eager to learn and asked any questions if she needed clarification."
"We worked through tons of practice problems involving z-scores. Some asked the student to find the probability of a certain measurement given a mean and standard deviation, and others worked the other way - asking the student to find a measurement given a certain percentile."
"The student and I went over practice questions in order to prepare for her upcoming test. We worked on standard error, confidence intervals, and the z-statistic for populations and samples. I think she will do well if she studies the definitions of confidence intervals, central limit theorem, and one-tailed vs. two-tailed hypothesis tests. I also think she should study when to apply which z-equations, and how to pull variables out of word problems. She did well with these topics when we were together but extra review is always helpful!"
"We went over practice problems for a statistics test the student has in a few weeks. He seemed pretty confident about the material."
"1. Z tests, rejection regions, general hypothesis testing, and statistical philosophy. 2. The student wanted to succeed and understood concepts quickly. 3. She has homework problems she has to work on, and I left her some notes on how to think about the material."
