Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked hard at completing his assignment (Homework 7). This was definitely the most difficult of his assignments so far, but I am confident that at the end of our time together, he left comfortable with the material and comfortable with how he performed on the assignment. There has been some great scores to note his progress, as he has received a 99% and a 100% on the past two exams. I am sure he will continue to perform this well on his upcoming exam."
"The student hasn't received her Chapter 4 test back yet. We covered chapter 5 section 1 which was on sampling and touched on surveys, observational and experimental studies. I helped her complete her homework assignment. Next session we will work on her project for determining a least squares regression line/equation to estimate the sale price of a used car."
"We went through a breakdown of ANOVA tables, calculations of MD error and MD groups, and the relevance of the F ratio. Thus, we were able to walk through the student's assignments and complete the ones that were pending, so that he could take more time to practice the calculations and finish the class with a passing grade in December."
"The student worked ahead on the homework for the next chapter which is over correlation. I refreshed her memory on the basic concepts on correlation learned from her previous math classes and taught her the process on how to calculate the correlation coefficient. Also, I showed her how to determine if that result is significant. She had some trouble picking up on how to use the formulas to determine if the correlation is significant, but she did a nice job on calculating the correlation coefficient."
"For this session, the student brought one of her old exams that she took last week. We went through the test step-by-step, where I explained exactly what the question was asking and important patterns to look for when solving these equations. The test was on standard deviations and the correlation coefficient."
"Today, we worked on an assignment having to do with z and t-tests. We calculated test statistics and determined when to reject the null hypothesis and when to retain it."
