I got an A+ in calculus in high school and a 5 on the BC Calculus AP Test. I have two degrees in engineering, and calculus is a must-know subject for that. In 4 years of High School, 4 years of College, and 2 years of Graduate School, I learned innumerable things about a wide variety of topics, but the most important lesson I learned was this: the students who get A's are not necessarily the most naturally gifted in the class, but are the almost always the hardest workers. Sooner or later, everyone finds themselves struggling to stay on top of their classwork, and when that happens, it's the d [more]

Calculus is the most important mathematical tool for describing the real world. I've tutored dozens of students for hundreds of hours in calculus, so I'm familiar with the subtopics where students are most likely to struggle. I've also written on-line content and parts of solution manuals for calculus courses, so I'm uniquely familiar with calculus as it's taught in the classroom and online. I also know how calculus is used in practice to create new hypotheses in science and new design considerations in engineering. Using calculus as a graduate student at MIT, I created a theoretical descript [more]

I have 10+ years of experience tutoring SAT math, GRE math, algebra 1 and 2, pre-calculus, calculus, trigonometry, geometry, chemistry and physics. I was a teaching assistant for an introductory engineering course dealing primarily with statics for a few semesters in college. I have been a volunteer tutor for ESL so I have experience working with adults as well as kids and teens. I look forward to helping you achieve the results you'd like to see. Please feel free to contact me with any q... [more]

I studied theoretical math at MIT, and I've taught every level of calculus -- from elementary to AP (both AB and BC), to advanced multivariable calculus at MIT, to calculus on differentiable manifolds for applications in mathematical physics -- for more than ten years. I help my students acquire real mastery by fitting the specific topics they study into a bigger picture. I specialize in rigorous, high-level academic tutoring, test preparation, and enrichment for high school, college, and graduate students. I have ten years and thousands of hours of experience with students around the world. [more]

Calculus is the math that quantifies change. Whereas algebra quantifies structure and geometry quantifies space. Calculus is the place where algebra, geometry, and the overarching concepts and ideas of change, come together as a narrative. Calculus is the entrance to modern mathematics. In College, I studied Calculus both intensively and extensively. Intensively by studying Calculus I, II, III and Differential Equations; but, more importantly, by understanding the theoretical and proof-based foundation of the subject through Advanced Calculus I-II courses. I studied the subject extensively b [more]

Differential/Integral calculus was co-invented by Isaac Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz in the 17th century, but the ideas leading up to it trace back to the ancients who invented the "Method of Exhaustion". Either way, the goal was always to solve practical problems, especially in physics and other sciences. Examples of questions that can be answered: How much energy is needed to launch a 1000 ton shuttle into near-earth circular orbit? (Physics) If you want to make an open rectangular box of maximum volume and have 10000 sq. cm. of cardboard to use, what should be the dimensions? (Optim [more]

As an undergraduate and graduate student in physics, applied mathematics, including calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra, was one of the main tools used to solve problems. When teaching physics, if the student was not comfortable with the math needed to understand the material, I filled in the gaps. As a student approaches a subject, there are two major factors to success: a solid foundation in the fundamentals and skills at solving problems. The fundamentals are very important for understanding why aspects of the subject work the way they do and to be able to build on one asp [more]

As calculus is the measurement of change and physics the science of motion, I used advanced calculus intensively in my physics degree. I am experienced tutoring calculus and its applications in quantitative sciences. I teach enough theoretical analysis to allow students to understand calculus as an exciting and well-founded tool, and all the practical advantages necessary to put it to use with full confidence. I scored 5 on AP Calculus BC. I am a writer, programmer, and experienced mentor who loves teaching. Harvard College AB in Physics and Philosophy, United States Presidential Scholar, Eagl [more]

I have a Physics B.A., and three years of experience tutoring courses which involve mathematics from algebra and trigonometry to high level calculus and linear algebra. Math and physics are hard--that's why I'm here to help you survive and thrive! If you struggle with equations, get lost in word problems, or can't grasp the core concepts, don't worry: you aren't alone! As a physics graduate with 3 years of experience in tutoring, I am knowledgeable in several areas of study, including electromagnetism, mechanics, introductory atomic and quantum physics, optics, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics [more]

I am a graduate from the University of Chicago with a BA in Math and an MS in Computer Science. I currently work as a data scientist in Cambridge, which has given me the ability to easily find practical applications or interesting connections for many of the topics I teach. I usually specialize in more technical subjects like math and computer science, but I am equally qualified to tutor the humanities and social sciences. In the past, I have presented papers at graduate-level philosophy conf... [more]
