Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session, we covered various problems related to probability distributions (continuous & discrete), including characteristics of a discrete probability distribution, the mean, variance, and standard deviation."
"The student and I worked our way through her review packet for her final exam. We covered mainly the most recent material, as she likes to work through tests and packets backwards. She had a very good knowledge of that material. We started to touch on some older material, and she needed some more reminding about those topics, but now she has a good idea of what she needs to focus her review on. We got about halfway through the packet, and will go over the rest in our next session, right before the final."
"The student completed the first tutoring session aimed at improving her understanding of statistics. During the session, I helped her prepare for the statistics section of her upcoming board exam. Specifically, we worked through approximately 30 assigned questions from a question bank. She was initially required to answer each item independently. If she provided an inaccurate response, I pointed out her error(s) and asked her questions aimed at guiding her toward the correct solution. I also explained any statistical terms and/or concepts she was unfamiliar with, when necessary."
"The student has his statistics final tomorrow evening so today was mainly focused on review. I can tell that the student feels more confident about the material than he did about two weeks ago. I am confident that he will do a good job on his exam."
"The student is working on amplitude, period, phase shift, and vertical shift. He seemed to have the most trouble with vertical shift, midline, and how the function behaves around that midline. He has a great attitude and is diligently working on his ACT prep, which is next week. He does like finding the quickest way to solve a problem, even though it doesn't work in every situation. I told him that the best way to deal with that midline shift would be to go ahead and graph the function where it should be on the x-axis and then move the picture where the midline is. He scored a 97 on his last exam and he didn't need any extra practice because his teacher is still working on the concept that we covered."
"The student need to be taken back over basic statistics concepts for a statistics course he is retaking. This included reviewing the number of tails on statistic tests, Type I errors, Type II errors, test power, t-tests, z-tests, and standard errors. The student was somewhat mystified by the subject matter, which is to be expected because that subject matter is statistics. I am glad that I was able to help him work through his review questions."
