Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session, we focused on the chi-square distribution. Specifically, we covered the goodness of fit test and the test of independence. We calculated degrees of freedom and the observed test statistic. In addition, we determined the relevant critical value to make a decision. We also inspected SPSS output and walk through the interpretation of the results. We will schedule another session."
"Today the student and I talked about the following topics: percentiles, z-scores, standard scores, normal distributions, computing z-scores, finding observation values based on percentiles, and revisiting the mean and standard deviation of specific sets of data."
"Today the student and I worked on her sociology homework, and we worked on finding an article that showed the relationship between different groups in society. He did really well with the assignment, and after this assignment we worked on studying for her anatomy class."
"Today the student and I worked with probabilities using the definition of union, intersection and conditional probability. He does a good job of figuring how to use the formulas once they are in front of him. With a good note sheet, I bet he will do well on his exam!"
"Today was my first session with the student, and I was able to help him through the first two sections of his Statistics book. These dealt with the empirical approach and types of empirical research. He seemed to tie things together once I explained them more thoroughly. I think that we will be able to get through this class without much of a problem! We will meet again on Tuesday to continue with the next sections."
"Today we covered chapters 5 and 6, involving probability, z values, means, and standard deviations, and manipulation of all of the above for several types of statistical problems. The student is taking to these problems much more quickly with guidance and is making fewer errors, and has more of an idea what theoretical rules to apply to each problem type."
