Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session, we covered the interpretation of various statistical output in SPSS that involved means, standard deviations, and regression output. We interpreted regression slopes, R squared, and coefficients. The student will email me next week. She is always very pleasant to work with."
"The student and I went over all kinds of material in preparation for her final exam next week. We covered everything from basic descriptive statistics (mode, median, mean), to choosing which kind of test to use for a given study. That last piece seemed to be what she needed help with the most, so I gave her additional practice to work on before the exam next week. She is going to work on some practice problems this weekend, and we'll set up a session on Monday if we need to."
"The student and I worked through homework problems today, covering set theory, unions, intersections, complements, independence, givens, and other general probability problems. Some of the general probability I had already covered with her, and she remembered how to work those problems out with little prompting. Unions, intersections, givens, and independence were all new to her, but she picked up on how to do them quickly. I worked with her on breaking down the questions and attempting to not overthink them, focusing simply on the question asked. She was attentive and applied what she knew to the materials well, and she showed comfort with the concepts covered."
"Today, the student and I finished graphing! We reviewed each of the different graphing types and did more practice problems. Now, we'll be able to move onto prealgebra! I asked him to start thinking about the relationships and correlations, (i.e., ice cream sales and heat), as we're going to start working on variables and the relationship between independent and dependent variables. I know he's excited to start, and it should be a good challenge!"
"Today, the student and I worked on his math homework. As we worked through the problems, we discussed repeated addition and making an array. When it came to the division, we discussed repeated subtraction and grouping to solve division problems. For homework, he will continue to study his multiplication facts."
"Today, we covered a range of concepts that we've mostly covered before, like factoring quadratics, using the quadratic formula, and graphing quadratics. The student remembered quite a bit of the information and was able to work through questions quicker than usual. Her knowledge is very strong with these concepts."
