Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student wanted help finishing up his study guide for his upcoming exam. We reviewed the concepts of correlation and regression, and specifics such as what exactly the different components are like the regression equation, the slope and intercept, and estimating predicted values. We also looked at types of graphs for different types of data."
"Today I helped the student review one of his previous assignments that he had a question on. It concerned confidence intervals dealing with proportions. We then moved on to reviewing things for his upcoming final exam. This dealt with everything, starting with finding the mean, drawing certain charts and graphs based on the data, and computing z-scores. Our next session is scheduled for Wednesday, and we will discuss anything he has a question on or needs to review before his final."
"Today the student and I went over how to calculate in statistics. We learned about observed frequency and expected frequency. I also taught her how to use a graphing calculator. She was able to finish both the assignment due tonight and the one due on Sunday!"
"Today the student and I worked on confidence intervals and hypothesis tests for differences between proportions, chi-squared tests for goodness-of-fit, and independence. We worked on understanding the formulas and practicing calculations, as well as looking up p-values in the appropriate tables. She had a quiz this week that she didn't feel comfortable about, so one of my goals moving forward is to make sure she is really understanding the formulas and the problem settings on her own so that she can feel confident going into exam settings. Overall, the student remains hardworking and dedicated to mastering the content of this course."
"Today the student and I worked on p-values, margin of error, and hypothesis testing. The student struggles with identifying the correct equation to use based on information provided and often confuses symbols. She needs more practice identifying symbols and using them correctly. I suggested that the student start each problem by writing down what information she is given, using the appropriate symbols. This will also help the student identify additional steps she needs to take to find the correct answer."
"Today the student did a second practice test. We stopped to discuss concepts of discrete and continuous. I reminded the student to draw pictures of the probability they want when doing Z-scores."
