Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over several forms of hypothesis testing, and I explained how to conduct the various tests and Z score related operations on the student's calculator. She has homework left related to the material we covered that she will practice between our sessions, but she made a lot of progress and seemed to grasp the material well."
"We went through test corrections that the student is going to be able to show her professor. Through the test corrections, we reviewed the normal and standard normal distributions, the binomial distribution and its cdf, confidence intervals, critical values, probability distributions, and discrete versus continuous random variables. We are going to meet again tomorrow and continue working."
"We worked through a lot of homework problems. Some were related to filling out missing values in ANOVA tables. Other questions asked about single and multiple regression. We did a lot of calculations and then interpreted those results. These problems were trickier in that most of them involved more abstract calculations. We will meet one more time to discuss problems that test understanding of Chi-square."
"We worked through the Basic Statistics and Linear Combinations topics of the statistics section of the student's math course. We worked through each of the exercises in these topics, so that the student is prepared to take the post-quizzes on the material. She plans on taking the post-quizzes tonight and we will continue with the next statistics topics in our next session. We also focused on using Excel to calculate things such as standard deviation, skewness, and covariance for given data. She seems to have a solid grasp of most concepts and we made good progress with how to calculate specific values and use Excel. She asks good questions and has a good focus on the real-world meaning of calculated results."
"We worked through the concepts of z-score, finding normal probabilities, calculating the correlation coefficient, predicting a response given a regression line equation, and the least squares regression line. We worked on possible problems covering these topics that I made up during the session. We will meet again tomorrow evening."
"Went over the student's homework, which was a big introduction to hypothesis testing. She was diligent and focused in trying to stay with me, and it really showed - she seemed to have a much better handle on the material by the end of the session. Looking forward to future sessions!"
