Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session, we focused on a project that involved conducting four independent samples t-tests and two dependent samples t-tests. We walked through how to conduct the analyses in SPSS, and how to interpret the output. I provided example tables for presenting results, as well. This student is such a pleasure to work with. She is very positive and upbeat."
"The student needed support on his weekly homework. We reviewed the following concepts: histograms, relative frequencies, classes, class width, stem-and-leaf plots, distribution, and skewness. He had some trouble interpreting what some of the questions were asking for in terms of calculating frequencies vs. percentages and skewness; however, creating graphs and drawing pictures seemed to help him. I encouraged him to review his homework prior to the due date to elaborate on or revise his answers. The student was attentive during the session."
"The student reviewed some of the material we had worked on last time by doing her homework assignment. This included graphing data, determining the most useful measure of central tendency, and finding weighted means."
"The student seems to be grasping more concepts now that she is getting more comfortable with not only the material but also the system in which her homework is delivered. We went over applications of the normal distribution today. Talking about z scores mainly. We worked our way through one of her homework assignments and now she has her first 100% on her homework. I'll be sending her some videos and practice work to help her with more homework over the weekend, and then we are going to meet twice next week before her test."
"The student showed me his class syllabus and text book, so I can see what he has covered and will be learning for the rest of class. He told me about the final project he will have to do and the idea he has for it. He then proceeded to show me the last test he took as an example of the style of questions he will need to answer. He then had some questions for me on simple linear regression and correlation. I drew him some diagrams to show visually a plot with 1, -1, and 0 correlations. I explained the interpretation of the regression slope and the slopes relationship with the correlation coefficient. "
"The student was assigned a chapter review. This mainly consisted of visualizing data by creating frequency distributions and other graphics. He understood everything. We were unable to get through the whole review in the amount of time but the remaining problems were similar to those that we covered together."
