Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed the student's first four quizzes in preparation for his final exam. This included marginal probability, box and whisker plots, regression analysis, and types of bias. The student did very well on his most recent quiz!"
"We worked on frequency distributions, relative frequency distributions, cumulative frequency distributions, bar charts, pie charts, and calculating a Z score."
"The student and I reviewed some probability in preparation for her upcoming test. We covered conditional probability, independent events, and two-way tables."
"The student continued making excellent progress with his online Statistics course. Lesson 6 included a quiz where he scored 100% correct answers, demonstrating how to change a fraction to percent, use "words to math" and a variable to calculate percent of, and find simple interest. Lesson 6 then covered measures of center: mean, mode and median. This lesson was stringent in asking for the calculations, which is best for a given data set, and how each would change if a new data point was added. Stem and leaf plots were considered; here, he quickly grasped how to create and interpret stem and leaf graphics. He learned to use median when there is an outlier. He scored 100% on the Lesson 6 checkpoint quiz. Lesson 7 presented box and whisker plots which he grasped easily. He scored 100% on the skills update and checkpoint quizzes for this lesson. He recalled the meaning angle, how to calculate probability and use of a proportion. He learned how to find the quartiles (medians), the range, and the interquartile range (range of the box). He is enjoying his successes and increasingly recalls formulas, methods and strategies to answer questions independently. Strategies employed during this session included writing everything before using calculator, use of a formula list, and mnemonics and other little connections to improve memorization."
"The student and I worked on various integration problems in preparation of his upcoming test. He is doing pretty well."
"The student and I focused on math and spelling this session. For math, we worked on word problems finding the difference. I.e. "One stick is four inches long, another is six inches long. How much shorter is the first stick?" We approached the problems in multiple ways. We used Cheerios as manipulatives to visualize the difference, and we also used an equation (bigger number - smaller number). I made additional word problems outside of her homework from school and she was able to solve all problems on her own. We then moved on to spelling. We practiced the words with the sheet to reference before practicing without looking. Eventually, she was able to spell all words on her own."
