Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I continued working on a z-test problem provided by her instructor in a statistics course. We went through every step carefully, including how to set up the hypotheses, how to determine the critical value, how to calculate the test statistic, exactly why the z-test was the correct statistic and how to set alpha and make a decision about accepting or rejecting the null hypothesis. We also went over Greek symbols she needs to memorize so she will be able to use the formulas for the different test statistics properly."
"We reviewed financial concepts with a focus on the CAPM method for determining reasonable rates of return. This included looking at market and risk-free rates as well as the betas of certain companies."
"The student was more focused than usual. We went over some old quiz questions involving counting problems and confidence intervals. She is getting stronger with some of the material but still needs help in some fundamental concepts. We will likely meet again later this week to go over those."
"In this session, the student and I covered his new material on discrete mathematics. Having completed statistics, he seems more relaxed and to have greater understand of the current material. We reviewed the concepts from last week, as well as moved ahead for the coming week."
"The student has an exam this coming week so we spent most of the time reviewing for that. We were able to go over confidence intervals. We did practice problems with the t-table, and the z-table. We also covered chi-squared tests. Overall, we addressed the main issues he had questions on. It seemed that after practicing a few problems, he was able to understand the material better. He has also made a good amount of progress on his statistics project that he will need to complete for the class."
"We continued our review for her final exam. The student showed good knowledge of the concepts behind the material and was able to successfully complete problems with some prompting. We began to cobble together her notesheet which helped to serve as another check on her understanding of the material."
