Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We talked about multiple regression analysis, the topic that the student's class is currently covering. We started by going back through her notes and making sure that she understood the basic meaning of multiple regression analysis and the assumptions involved. She is intimidated by her class and finds the symbols confusing, so we went slowly and broke it down into simple concepts. Then, we worked together on one of the problems from her homework in which we tried to understand the results of a multiple regression analysis. She got significantly better at this once she gained a little confidence with the material. There's a lot of material from earlier in the class that she is shaky on, so we have plans to meet a few more times this week and go through it."
"We went over the computation of the expected value (median), variance, and standard deviation of probability distribution functions. We successfully tackled the homework problem the student was assigned."
"We went over the information from chapters 4 and 5, which covered measures of center and measures of variance. The student missed the lecture for chapter 5 so we had to go over the material in detail. She also had quite a few questions about the measures of center but once we did a few practice problems she did fine."
"We went over the student's models for a confirmatory factor analysis and talked about the best way to compare the two models. He will get further clarification from his teaching associate and get back to me if he would like to schedule another appointment."
"We went over vectors yesterday as a major topic. We did addition of vectors, segmenting vectors and determining the magnitude of vectors. We went over the simple basics of how vectors can be affected with certain variables. We also went over the basic concepts of statistics such as quantitative and qualitative data. The student felt a lot more confident after our session. :)"
"We went through some statistics basics to assess her level. We discussed: Probability, symbols, notations, etc. They will be emailing me the text and specifically what the student is looking at in class for next time."
