Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on problems to prepare him for his final exam. He excelled at running statistics in SPSS. He also did well overall in interpreting results and writing-up everything. It will be important for him to pay attention to the details! Best of luck to him! It was a pleasure working with him!"
"The student and I worked through some problems from probability and statistics. Some topics included the binomial distribution, the normal distribution, probability tables, conditional probability, and we began confidence intervals. She and I are going to continue working Friday night."
"The student is a high school student who wanted help conceptually with understanding experiments and all of the components, such as what it means to have randomization, placebo-controlled, or double-blind. We also discussed independent and dependent/response variables,and how to identify treatments, subjects, and samples from populations."
"The student needed assistance separating the z-tests for proportions and means and the t-test for means, as they are all very similar and can be easily confused. She learned how to differentiate the tests moderately well, but she needs a little more foundation. I gave her a few videos to watch that helped me when I took AP statistics, and I think that these will help her a ton."
"The student shared some general background about the structure of his class and his homework. He requested that we work on defining some of the terms for his homework this week. We reviewed the following types of sampling techniques and designs: simple random sample, cluster sample, stratified sample, systematic sample, single- and double-blind studies, random block studies, placebo effects, and treatment vs. control groups. We tried to come up with examples for some of the concepts as we discussed, which seemed to help him. He may need some additional practice defining these terms in his own words and applying them to real-world research/study scenarios. He was very engaged, cooperative, and positive during the session."
"The student updated me on the format of the class, the work she has to do, and the general schedule. She has completed the work for week one, so we looked over the assignments for week two and she started the written homework. She was able to get through a few questions, and she said she would work through the rest on her own this week."
