## Statistics Overview

If your student is in statistics, we understand what a challenging course this can be for many people. Our tutors offer one-on-one tutoring sessions to your student to help them make the academic progress by helping them cover specific material that they are struggling with.

Statistics is a challenging math subject that many people struggle with. It is an interdisciplinary field that analyzes data and presents it in different formats. This work is useful in just about every field imaginable, from professional sports teams that use statisticians to help them determine the composition of their team to economics and studying the stock market.

Statistics also has a variety of different sub-disciplines that you might study, with examples including actuarial science, reliability engineering, and quantitative psychology. Because this field is so broad, working with a private statistics tutor can help your student understand the material better than just trying to learn in a classroom setting.

### Testing and Statistics

Your student will face a variety of assessments designed to test their statistics knowledge. These include having to answer questions on a test in the classroom or in preparing for a standardized test such as the SAT or ACT. For instance, the SAT in particular requires basic knowledge of probability and statistics to answer a number of questions. Topics may include mean, median, average number and mode.

Working with a statistics tutor can help your student perform well on the SAT. This performance can help your student get into their dream college or university, as many schools look at their scores on these types of tests to help make admissions decisions. A higher score is often associated with getting into more competitive universities, as long as your student’s other academic basics are met, such as getting good recommendations and having afterschool extracurricular activities.

If your student needs help with calculating expected values, their tutor can focus on that until they master the material. Areas, where your student has already mastered the material, can be reviewed but not covered as in-depth.

Our statistics tutors can also provide your student with review help on general test-taking strategies. When preparing for a major test, such as the SAT or ACT, our tutors can help your student work on time management skills so that they have time to answer every question. They may also work with your student on ways to combat test-taking anxiety that many people face, teaching skills such as deep breathing to help overcome the anxiety if it starts to rise. Having these skills can help your student with their coursework, as well as standardized exams, and it often comes in handy in college-level courses, as well.

When your student works with a statistics tutor, they can get an individualized test prep plan. This can be applied to future studies to help your student master other subject material, as well. These general test-taking skills can be a boon when taking future courses and tests.

Statistics is often a challenging subject, but it doesn’t have to be when your student has a qualified private tutor in their corner. The material can be covered at your student’s pace to ensure that nothing is missed, while reviewing material they need to know for either their classroom studies or future standardized testing. The review sessions will never go to waste either: if your student has already mastered upcoming material, the tutor can focus on future material after ensuring your student’s knowledge base is complete.
