Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student wanted help with introductory statistics. He had problems based on measures of central tendency (mean, median, and mode) and graphs such as time series and histograms. We went into his online course platform together and worked through homework problems with examples and outside sources so that he can understand the material thoroughly. We also set up an Excel workbook with formulas, and I showed him how to calculate answers that way too."
"Today we worked on hypothesis testing with proportions and also hypothesis testing using the Chi-Square distribution. We were able to get through both of the questions that concerned these topics and the student seemed to really understand what she was trying to find and how to find it. I was able to break it down into smaller steps and I believe that helped her really take a hold of what she needed to learn. We will continue working on this assignment during our session on Friday."
"Today, the student and I worked on joint density function, cumulative density function, and probability density function. She needed help with differentiating between the mentioned concepts, so we went over them in detail."
"Today, we covered median, interquartile range, means, standard deviations, and graph rules. The student was not really struggling with any of the material. He just needs more practice so the equations are automatic. His attitude was great! He seemed confident and prepared. He had a quiz and received 88% last week."
"Today, we covered permutations, combinations, and compound events. The student has a test on Thursday, so we're making sure she gets the concepts down at her best pace. She understands that she is going to have to do a lot of problems over the next few nights, as repetition is the father of learning!"
"Today, we covered two methods of using r to measure correlation strength. The "eyeball method" and "the r^2 method." We also reviewed 1-tailed and 2-tailed tests, and how to recognize them. Additionally, we went back and covered some misconceptions about standard deviation calculation that were missed in the first session. Finally, we discovered some challenges that she is having with the transcribed text via a transcription service, including interwoven blocks of misplaced passages, improperly formatted data, and missing or inappropriately replaced mathematical symbols. A good portion of our session was utilized simply for covering several passages of Chapter 9 verbally."
