Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I helped the student correct her chapter 8 homework. She seems to have a good grasp of when to use each calculator function for confidence intervals."
"Today the student did homework focusing of probability utilizing the standard normal distribution and converting percentiles into z scores. We also worked on finding an x value given a mean and a standard deviation."
"The student and I first went over her homework, and then we switched to beginning her review for her test next week. We created a list of concepts that she will use to make a review guide for herself. She said, "this is the first math class where I am feeling comfortable with the ideas.""
"The client had homework for statistics, which was to run multiple regression in SPSS. She needed to start with scatterplots to test for multicollinearity and correlations between the criterion and predictors. She had to assess outliers and the normality of the distributions. She had to run the analysis and report on the t-tests, the F-test, and the probabilities. She had to report which IV contributed most to the model, and she had to paste in all of the correct charts and graphs. She had done quite a bit of work beforehand, but since I have SPSS, I was able to rerun the analysis with her, check her work, and provide additional insight regarding how to report degrees of freedom and how to look up her critical F-value (which her instructor requested)."
"The student and I went over a review worksheet for his statistics class. We covered confidence intervals and finding test statistics for different sample scenarios. Additionally, we covered how to find p-values that correspond to specific test statistics. We also briefly covered hypothesis testing. This material was review for him and he seemed to understand the material and was solving the problems on his own during the session."
"We reviewed homework #5 on discrete distributions, expected value, and variance, and then we went over the practice sheet for tomorrow's quiz on probabilities of discrete distributions. I worked with the student on learning when to use the different distributions and some key points to keep track of to avoid common mistakes. I instructed her to continue reviewing example problems to know when to use the different distributions - she is doing well in general."
