Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Introduction to Statistics. Student was very positive about the material being reviewed. Straight forward problem solving was given during the tutoring session. Extra practice was also given."
"Concepts Covered: population, sample, sampling distribution, standard error, relationship between sample size and sampling distribution."
"Today we worked on probability. We had some confusion with z-score computation and percentages at first, but we were able to figure it out and move more swiftly through problem-solving."
"We reviewed the same information that was on today's quiz for an upcoming test the student has the next day. This includes unit conversions, gathering information from word problems, and determining how to set up each problem. He is struggling a little bit with determining how to get from one unit of measure to another, but he does well as we go through the problems. However, I will advise him to put down his pencil and paper, and to spend time reading through each of the word problems, determining what information is given and what information is being asked. Understanding what is being asked in word problems, and the process of solving for that this, are the key components to getting the correct answer. I will be sending him some review notes shortly in order to help him prepare for tomorrow's test."
"We reviewed tables, and then we reviewed x and y coordinates. Then we reviewed negative coordinates. I listed off many coordinates and had the student plot them. She didn't know what she was making as she plotted the points. In the end, she made an airplane on all 4 quadrants. It was a good review. :)"
"The student asked to work on combinations and permutations. She was able to put values into the two formulas correctly and was able to show the factorizations and cancellations and final outcomes. She is currently not using the functions in probability menu in her TI84 for these as teacher wants work written out. The student asked about factoring out a factorial as in (4!3!)/2! and about 5!/5!(5-5)! but was able to talk herself through these without much input from me--just needed assurance that she had it. She is off to a solid start on this topic."
