Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed some material for her final exam. We went over hypothesis testing and introductory material. I recommended that she read over the online notes thoroughly and do some practice problems before taking her exam on Saturday. Her quiz and homework grades have improved throughout the summer."
"The student and I started with a discussion of confidence intervals and how to find the critical values necessary to compute them. We then spent a majority of the time on maximum likelihood estimation. This first involved an overview of the the theory behind it, and the calculus involved before we worked on some examples and homework problems. He felt much more comfortable with the topic at the end of our session."
"The student and I studied for his third exam. We reviewed ANOVA problems as well as other statistical tests, including t-tests. He needs to first be clear about identifying what test is being used, then include every relevant detail in the write-up for that test (remember for the ANOVA to include LSD and HSD comparisons and state what agreed and was contrary with the hypothesis, as necessary, if partially supported)."
"The student and I talked about regression analysis, specifically linear. We talked about hypothesis testing, standard error, P values, R square and adjusted R square. We went over some homework questions she was having trouble with, and she has another homework due Friday. Our next session is scheduled for Thursday, and then we're planning on getting together twice next week to prepare for her test."
"The student and I talked more about the binomial distribution, and I helped him review a lab for his class he had the next day. I think the material is coming along much more easily to him!"
"The student and I went over correlation and simple linear regression. We also reviewed assessing statistical significance with p-values. He was very dedicated to learning the material and working hard. I plan to create visual study guides for him and bring them with me to the next session. It will highlight the probability distribution, as well as strength and sign of correlations."
