Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student wanted help learning the principles of basic probability for a course she is taking in introductory statistics. She sent homework problems, and we reviewed them step by step, giving detailed explanations so she'll be able to do them on her own. We also discussed the normal distribution and how it relates to probability because that is her next chapter."
"Today I was able to help the student with questions she had on the chi-square distribution homework she completed yesterday. We also discussed a few other things, just to reassure her that she was doing them correctly. I believe that she will do very well on her final exam tomorrow, and she should not have any trouble at all."
"Today was our last meeting, as he will be taking his final exam this afternoon. He had just a couple quick questions to go over, and then we discussed test-taking strategies. I feel we both learned things over our several weeks studying together. He about statistics, and me about test-taking strategies."
"Today we continued our preparation for the student's exam. We went over her quizzes from class and made sure she asked questions on concepts she did not quite understand. We covered compound events, combinations, and permutations. She understood that in addition to our time together, it was up to her to put in the practice to help put her understanding to the next level."
"Today we covered concepts from Chapter 1, mainly definitions and terms. Some of the terms we covered included descriptive statistics, inferential statistics, variable, discrete versus continuous observations, and nominal, ordinal, interval, and ratio data. We focused on coming up with concrete real life examples for each of these terms in order to make the definitions meaningful."
"Today we covered confidence intervals for binomial experiments. The student seemed a little lost with the notes she had from class, so we spent a lot of time working through what things meant and clarifying things she was confused about."
