In your **private tuition** you will learn how to **compile statistics**. At first it may seem difficult, but little by little you will improve. Here are some tips:

**What do you want to study? **Before trying to create a statistic, you should first ask this question.
**Sample**. Remember that an adequate sample should represent the topic. Your **statistics tutor **can help you with this.
**Data collection**. Data collection is done through spreadsheets usually extracted from databases, as you will learn in your **private statistics class**. Here you need to collect the data systematically and organise it well.
**Data processing**. Here you should process the data to arrive at numbers, averages and percentages to help you answer your question in step 1. Remember to ask your **tutor **to help you with the indicators, tables and graphs.
**Analysis**. This is perhaps the most important part of carrying out your statistical work, the interpretation of the data extracted. You will arrive at the answer to your question.

**How do statistics lessons work?**

**Private tuition** can be done either **in person or online**. For both, the advantage of **finding tutors** is that the lessons will be tailored to your level of knowledge and your specific questions. Whether it's for an exam or to improve your statistics grades, on **FindTutors **you can choose from hundreds of **statistics tutors**.

To choose between so many profiles, it is best to filter by whether you want **online** or **in-person lessons** and what level you need. Don’t forget that if you choose to study from home, you should ideally book a place in your home that is comfortable for studying and, preferably, not too noisy or distracting. This way, you will get the most out of your **private statistics lessons**!

**Statistical terms**

In your private** statistics lessons **you should focus on the topics that you need to learn or go over. Therefore, you should let your **private** **tutor** know which areas you want to cover. Here are some common **statistical terms** that you should know:

**Arithmetic mean**. Total divided by the number of items. That is, if you need to determine a group trend in a list of numbers, it is important to use the arithmetic mean to quickly visualise the data.
**Standard deviation**. Your **statistics tutor **will probably teach you how to do standard deviation, but basically it is the measurement of a set of data relative to the mean. The larger the number, the more spread out the data is relative to the arithmetic mean. You will find the symbol sigma to represent the standard deviation.
**Regression**. In **statistics class **you will learn about regression, which is used to calculate trends over a period of time. Basically, it models the associations between explanatory and dependent variables. The variables are placed on a scatter plot where the line indicates whether the associations are weak or strong.
**T-test or hypothesis test**. It is often required in business and scientific research, and your **statistics tutor **has probably told you about it. A T-test determines whether a hypothesis is true or false for the data set.
**Descriptive statistical analysis**. This makes it easier to visualise and interpret the data.
**Statistical models**. Statistical analysis will help you arrive at propositions, which indicate: estimates, confidence and prediction interval.
**Statistical analysis software**. For those who need to do in-depth analysis of data, Data Analytics, BI, Data Science and Minitab 19 are ideal. They make accurate predictions and avoid errors in calculation and statistical analysis.
