It may seem strange to begin with a statistic, but I trust you will agree it's not wholly inappropriate. During the 2009-2010 school year, my 11 AP Chemistry students had a 100% pass rate with the following score distribution: Seven of them scored a 5, three scored a 4, and one scored a 3. The high scores are greater than three times the national average. What makes this even more impressive is that I only saw my students an average of 2.5 times per week (2 days one week, 3 days the next, alt... [more]

As an experienced academic tutor who has worked with a wide range of students, Phoebe is familiar with the various curriculums of a vicissitudes of schools and test preparations. This enables her to better comprehend and prepare lessons in accordance to the needs of her students. Phoebe?s anchoring philosophy rests upon the fact that while we may not start on a leveled field in this life; however, motivation, hard work and foremost the right tutor can go a long way in helping students reach t...

I remember what it was like to struggle with science and math subjects, and I hope to remove the anxiety and frustration from these topics. I think all students can understand these topics... IF they have someone who will teach them the way they learn best. Not all students learn or are motivated the same way, and I adapt my approach for each student's needs. When students don't understand the material due to the pace and style of the classroom, they often take this to mean there is a prob... [more]

Hey guys, my name is Kofi. I graduated from Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island with a B.S degree in Applied Mathematics- Economics. I began tutoring AP Calculus AB (I received a 5 on the exam) to local high school students as part of an after school program during both my freshman and sophomore year of college This was a classroom-based instruction style where I was the instructor; I went over concepts with the class first before giving the students individually crafted practice m...

Hello! I'm a UC Berkeley PhD student in physics, currently taking a one-year sabbatical. I am an experienced tutor in physics, chemistry and mathematics at both the high school and college / university levels. I do all I can to present the information in a way that is clear and intuitive to those I teach, and so I try to vary my teaching methods to match my students' styles. I do my best to go beyond "learning formulas," as a deeper understanding of the material leads to more success! I ... [more]

As a researcher (NASA, Caltech, Jefferson Lab), I have used calculus throughout my professional life. I can reveal the meaning behind the method, and teach you how to solve apparently daunting calculus problems. I was a postdoctoral fellow in particle/nuclear physics at the California Institute of Technology for three years, after which I became a research scientist in astrophysics at NASA?s Jet Propulsion Laboratory where I studied the early universe and dark matter for 12 years. During my PhD, I spent two years as a volunteer physics teacher at Chancellor College in the country of Malawi, wh [more]

I taught Calculus in LA Unified, and help prepare my students for the AP Calculus exam for many years. I also have references if needed. Hello. I love mathematics, students of mathematics, and am enthusiastic about tutoring. I have a BA in Mathematics from UC Irvine, and a California Math Secondary teaching Credential. I have recently retired from LAUSD, where I taught high school math for 30 years that included 10 years in a gifted magnet program. I taught basic math, pre-algebra, geometry, algebra 2, pre-calculus, trigonometry, AP calculus, both AB and BC levels, basic probability and [more]

I've been using calculus for well over a decade at this point, both in an academic as well as professional setting. Calculus is one of my most requested subjects (and integral to any hard science at an advanced level, pun unintended), so I've had plenty of experience successfully tutoring many students over the past several years. Hi there! I am a computational physicist at USC, doing research in quantum optics and solid-state physics. I teach all levels of mathematics, as well as introductory and college-level physics and various programming languages, including Fortran, Mathematica, and MATL [more]

Students will gain a genuine understanding of the meaning of these concepts without just memorizing formulas. This forms a solid foundation for critical thinking for college and/or skills that are required for STEM study in college. If you need help with higher level college math and physics, I'm your guy: Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetism, Modern Physics, Electrodynamics, Thermodynamics, Quantum Mechanics, Calc 1-3, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra. 12 years experience; I've been tutoring since I was 18. Valedictorian St. Bonaventure High School. BS in Physics from University of [more]

Because of my Master's Degree in physics, I have a large amount of practical and academic experience with all aspects of calculus through an undergraduate level and beyond. In addition, I have been tutoring AP and college-level calculus for a long time, so I know the material that is covered very well and can help students understand it. I am very comfortable with limits, epsilon-delta proofs, the formal definition of the derivative, Riemann Sums, the Fundamental Theorems of Calculus, Taylor series, vectors, partial derivatives, Jacobians, multiple integrals, and many other topics.
