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]

Qualifications: -BA in Math from UCSD, magna cum laude -OVER 4000 successful hours of tutoring in the last 6 years -You will not only learn the subject, you will learn to improve your ability TO study -Can debug even the most bogged student -Excellent reviews from clients attending major colleges to K-6th -I've even had students discover they CAN study, and decide to come OFF drugs So, if study is a constant source of problems for you, or you feel like you're just not good in a subject, b...

Calculus is your first step into college-level mathematics. Limits, derivatives, and integrals, along with their applications make Calculus the most challenging math class you have had so far. I am fully qualified to untangle for you these mysteries and make sure you have the tools to succeed. There are many who are knowledgeable about your subject. I go beyond that to understand your specific needs and anxieties that are causing you to not fully comprehend this subject. I have great intuition in this area once we start to work together. In addition to solving textbook problems and teach [more]

I find teaching Calculus to be very rewarding. After reviewing the general theorems, I help students learn to complete each step carefully and make sure it is logical before moving on to the next. By teaching students to attack difficult problems by using lots of easy baby steps, they quickly gain the confidence to approach any problems on their own. In less than 3 years of study, I graduated with honors from UC Berkeley in 2012 and was inducted into Psi Chi, The International Psychology Honors Society, in the same year. My coursework focused mainly on Psychology and the Pre-Medical Sciences a [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]

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.

I'm a Ph.D. candidate in physics at UCLA. I've been tutoring since high school, and I've always enjoyed the satisfaction of helping someone grasp a concept they've been struggling with. As an undergraduate, I helped lead homework help sections for the physics department. I was a teaching assistant at UCLA for six years, where I taught both introductory and advanced physics courses and earned an Outstanding Teaching award. As a TA and tutor, I've helped many students at different academic leve... [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 teaching and tutoring and preparing students for various tests for over 20 years. I have two Master's degrees, one in Physics and one in Math, and have just recently embarked on a journey to earn another degree in Chemistry. I love teaching and it's all I have ever wanted to do. I am never satisfied with what I know and almost often have a book with me to learn new and exciting things. I won the Teaching Assistant of the Year award my first year teaching and have only gotten better... [more]

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]
