Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Calculated compound discrete probabilities. Calculated ranges of binomial probability. Reviewed for final exam. Calculated mean of a frequency table. Converted points on a normal distribution to standard normal. Tested hypotheses on normal distribution. Discussed the assumptions of normality. Found the expected value of a regression."
"Concepts covered with the student were calculating probabilities based on the normal and binomial distributions. I also guided him in completing five assigned practice quizzes based on the concepts covered."
"Continued to work with the student to practice probability problems, working from his textbook and also making up additional examples to practice solving various question types. Also helped him practice finding function keys and shortcuts on his calculator."
"During this session, we discussed the procedures for conducting a 2-way ANOVA. We reviewed how to calculate the sums of squares for each of the components and their related degrees of freedom. We also discussed the nature of the F-ratio and how to determine the related F critical value from the tables. I differentiated the factor variable from the blocking variable and explained how the sum of squares block is subtracted from sum of square within to reduce the denominator of the F-ratio. The student will apply these concepts to her homework problems."
"For our first session, we went over some fundamental concepts in statistics, which included types of data, sampling methods, and distributions. During our sessions, the student picked up the material quickly, and I'm confident she will do well in this course. I did leave her with some strategies she could use in the future, such as predicting the final answer before the start of the problem. Overall, she is very bright, and I think if we make sure to verbally go over the concepts instead of simply reading formulas and numbers, she will do very well in her upcoming class."
"He had a specific homework question on a statistical test for difference in proportions. He had a solid grasp of the concepts, and mainly just needed help with pooled standard error. He should be all set now."
