Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed for a quiz covering standard score, normal distribution, one and two tail sample testing, and probability area under the curve. I did see a graded quiz and the student did well on that quiz."
"Tonight we reviewed a practice exam for the student's Statistics exam. Specifically, we covered binomial distributions, normal distributions, cumulative probability functions, density functions, "and", "or" and "not " probability summation. He did really well, and made a good identification on the difference between binomial probability distribution use, vs cumulative probability till success or failure."
"We covered half of a very long practice test dealing with probabilities, combinations and permutations. We will need another session to do the rest. The test is in two weeks."
"The student and I went through a printed out review she had that covered a number of subjects. We mostly focused on probability of categorical events (marginal, conditional, unions, intersections) and started to get into normal distributions and finding areas under the curve. We set up sessions for Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday prior to her exam Tuesday night."
"This was our last meeting before the student's midterm this weekend. I noticed a remarkable improvement in her ability to explain and understand the material. We just reviewed a few key points and I think she'll do well on the exam."
"We went over a lab assignment that he had, as well as parts of a problem set for review for his upcoming exam. Specifically we went over the central limit theorem as well as properties of the expected value and variance of distributions. The toughest thing we did was probably going over the computation and formulas involved in finding the expected value and variance of an average of 30 random variables. This seemed to be difficult for the student, but he did computationally get the correct answer. The big picture isn't quite making sense to him yet, but I think it will with more time."
