Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We went over a few statistics concepts and developed a study plan for the student's upcoming test. We also developed an outline and research strategy for an English paper the student is writing this week."
"We went over a lot of the basic statistics concepts, such as observational study or controlled study. We looked over a lot of graphs of how information may be derived in statistics. We looked over some interesting facts about real life scenarios of what can happen in statistics and how types of fast food affects caloric intake as a person. Mostly just basics-- this is the second week of Statistics."
"We went over a series of problem set assignments pertaining to significance testing for coefficients and models in multiple linear regressions as well as the substantive interpretations of those estimators. Happily, we were able to address all the prompts that the student was concerned about."
"We went over a test review in statistics. We looked at problems that involved probability, the normal, z and t-distributions, and confidence intervals. The student is taking a test tomorrow and is going to rework the problems without notes to make sure she is prepared. She was very quick on absorbing the concepts we went over and should do well on her test."
"We went over Chapters 5-8, focusing mostly on Chapters 7 and 8. We reviewed five different major equations involving confidence intervals, z-scores, proportions, margin of error, standard error, and sample numbers. We went over the homework for Chapter 8 to practice the concepts and make sure that the student understood how to do them on her own. I told her several keywords to look for that signify which equation to use, how to write down the variables from the problem before starting, and tips for when calculating the problem itself. Before this session, the student took an exam and was tested on this material. Now, with the review, she understands everything much better and should be able to do well on the next test."
"We went over homework problems. We then stated the conditions and steps for statistical hypothesis testing. Lastly, we tested one- and two-sided hypotheses assuming normal distribution, with and without population standard deviation given."
