Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on his statistics project and ran tests (correlation, t-tests, and ANOVA) on SPSS. He's actually using SPSS was a strength. He will want to make sure he is comfortable with analyzing results, especially telling whether or not our hypothesis was right or wrong, based on the p-value we obtained and comparing it to the p of .05."
"The student and I worked through some material from Probability and Statistics. Some of the problems were a conceptual review. We worked completely through a regression problem which was new material for her. She did really well on the regression problem."
"The student had a question about calculating a new standard deviation based on very limited info, which was only how the SD would change based on adding two equal values. We found the formula and calculated it."
"The student had a worksheet covering different types of hypothesis testing as well as a review listing topics to know. We went over the worksheet first and did all the steps for the different types of problems. Then we hit the highlights of the review and identified five main kinds of tests. She was confused about little details before the session but said she felt better about everything at the end."
"The student is almost at the end of his course!! We started by talking about his last test. He is very proud of his score. This time when test taking he still had anxiety but was able to take a deep breath then get his mind back on track. We will definitely take some time to reinforce these stress stopping exercises as we prepare for the final this coming week. Our math focus was on hypothesis testing. At first there was confusion about which numbers to compare but as we practiced drawing the pictures he began to see the pattern and how helpful the pictures can be."
"The student is very strong on this section of the material. We focused on strategies (like process of elimination) to answer convoluted questions. We also worked on reading and interpreting t-tables in hypothesis testing problems."
