I am a professional mechanical engineer with years of teaching and industrial experience, requiring strong knowledge of Calculus. I specialize in advanced math, science, and engineering subjects at the college-level but also teach English, writing, and music. My experience as a teacher spans over 15 years with a strong track record for success. I believe everyone, and I mean everyone, has the capacity to learn, and I do my best to take the subject material and make it as easy to understand and retain as possible. Unlike most teachers, I have strong industry experience, and therefore actually k [more]

Differential: Consider how you have calculated a rate of change until now. A difference in distance, area, volume, etc., was taken, and then it was divided by an interval of time over which the change occurred. Now, shorten the interval of time. Do it again. And, again. And, again--until the interval is infinitesimally small. In fact, let the interval shorten to zero (Yes, this is mathematically possible!). Once done, you will no longer have an average rate of change, but you will have an instantaneous rate of change for a given point in time. The above concept is the foundation upon which the [more]

I have tutored a number of students preparing for both AP AB and BC calculus. I have also tutored a number of home schoolers in Calculus. I have been a math tutor for five years. I also worked as a middle school math teacher in a high needs school for one year. I believe in the UPS - check method of solving problems. That is: U - Understand the problem - what is being asked P - Plan how you are going to solve the problem S - Solve the problem Check - Check your solution, particularly for reasonableness I believe in giving the students the background so that they can understand how and why c [more]

I am qualified to tutor Calculus because I have passed the course at MIT and placed out of it at University of Texas at Austin. I also tutored the subject for 11yrs at the local community college. My patience and experience have proved to be very helpful in teaching the Calculus to both HS and College students. I have a long history of tutoring math and science at Austin Community College in addition to working as an engineer, so I can understand the application of the math and science. But more importantly, I want my pupils to learn the subject matter so they can solve problems on their ow [more]

I am a sophomore in an Applied Mathematics degree. I have spent the last 4 years teaching students of all ages Calculus. I have helped over 20 students achieve an A by identifying their learning habits and creating lessons that are both enjoyable and highly effective. I?ve always had a natural gift and aptitude for teaching and working with people, and I want to share my love for math and logic with others. I believe that students can learn difficult concepts best in a one on one environment, where we can spend time on what you need. I find that specifically when learning the ?STEM? fields, pe [more]

I am Sanjana, and I am currently a student at UT Austin studying Biomedical Engineering. I believe that as future leaders of the world, children should be provided with strong foundations and equal access to as many resources as possible. I know how frustrating it can be for students when they are struggling in a particular area, and my hope is to help students overcome such frustrations by facilitating the material in an approachable and patient way. I once had a tutor that, through their pa... [more]

I have a Bachelor's degree in physics with a minor in mathematics and engineering (which includes college-level calculus I, II, and III) coupled with the experience in tutoring and teaching both at the high school and adult, college-level. My passion for teaching began during my undergraduate years at University of Nebraska - Lincoln after tutoring dorm-mates and participating in the university?s approved teaching internship where I taught AP calculus and AP physics at two Lincoln high schools: Pius X and Parkview, on a prearranged, alternate basis, with a permanent S.T.E.M. faculty member (10 [more]

I have my B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and a minor in Mathematics. Calculus was a critical building block for my degree and I have tutored many students in the subject. Hi! I understand that many areas of math can be tricky to grasp. For the past several years, I have worked as a high school and college math tutor to help students build confidence in the material they are learning. I have both classroom and private tutoring experience with a large number of subjects. I received my B.S in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Mathematics from the Colorado School of Mines then continued t [more]

I believe that tutoring should be done with a goal in mind. It should be a choice that the student makes not the parent and should not be a stressful event. I enjoy working with teenagers and I also enjoy science and math. I teach thinking skills, organizational skills, and help students learn to ask for what they need to succeed. I have an undergraduate degree in physics from Carnegie Mellon University and a masters in molecular genetics and biochemistry from the University of Pittsbur... [more]

I've taken accelerated (PAP, honors) math courses from pre-algebra through to calculus 3. Learning is a very personal experience, and as such I feel that it is best to tailor my tutoring style to fit the student's needs. That said, you really have to mesh well with your tutor, and I may not be the right fit for everyone. I know that there are many learning styles, and my own varies by subject. I also know that learning can be very frustrating; I found myself on more than on occasion feeling like the teacher wasn't answering the question I was trying to ask and I didn't know how to...
