Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student wanted help importing data into SPSS, creating frequency tables, and writing up the results, including a table for the report. We also previewed her upcoming assignment, where she will start doing hypothesis testing."
"Today I just helped the student with questions that he had on his review before his final exam tomorrow. We talked a little bit about hypothesis testing and probability, and went over a few things on his calculator. He is very prepared for his exam tomorrow, and he should have no problem with the questions."
"Today the student and I went over the Chapter 1 readings from both of her books and we reviewed the first homework assignment for her class. We also recapped sampling and biases that we had talked about last session."
"Today was our first meeting. We covered basic probability, using Venn diagrams to talk about union/intersection=OR/AND. The student was struggling with notation in statistics formulas, so we discussed them piece by piece. He had a good attitude about the material. He is really looking for some extra clarity on notation and an extra pair of eyes to watch for typos."
"Today was our first session, and we focused pretty exclusively on coding ANOVA problems in R. We went over basics of variable entry and function calls. We reviewed how to read the output from R to answer the questions. We also talked about some ways to make coding easier. I helped the student find coding to meet her needs and we worked through some examples together. Afterwards, she did some problems on her own to make sure she was understanding the coding for herself. Overall, she seemed to have a positive attitude towards statistics and coding in R. My goal is going to be to help her feel more comfortable with R, specifically with looking up coding resources online and being able to interpret what they are showing her how to do. I enjoyed getting to know the student and I look forward to working with her in the future."
"Today was the first tutoring session with the student. We covered the three different kinds of biases that occur in statistics. He was able to finish his homework and discuss examples of studies that may be subject to bias."
