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 scored a 5 on the Calculus BC Advanced Placement exam and have significant experience tutoring this subject. This is a subject I am teaching nearly constantly. I have had incredible results with students who went from being so far behind to getting an A on their final. In January, Wyzant named its "Top 250 Tutors in 2015" and I am very proud to be on that list! It was such an honor to be recognized! The following vignette tells you almost everything you need to know about me and my methods and my success rate - While helping a student with calculus, she spontaneously exclaimed, "This is th [more]

Calculus is the study of rates of change, and has numerous and varied applications from business, to physics, to medicine. The complexity of the topics involved however, require that your grasp of mathematical concepts and function properties is strong. I have helped numerous students master both the foundations and the specific skills taught in a variety of calculus courses. As a math education specialist, I work well with many different types of students from middle school through adult. I also bring an energy and love of my subject that helps students connect with their work. My creativity [more]

I studied 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'm an independent tutor in my late twenties. I specialize in academic tutoring and test preparation for high school, college, and graduate students. I have ten years and thousands of hours of experience working with hundreds of student [more]

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]

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]

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 by seeing its application in courses such as Numerical Analysis, Complex Variables, Calculus-based Physics and Calculus-based Statistics. In Graduate School, I explored the theoretical aspect of Calculus more thoroughly by taking Mathematical Analysis I-II, Measure/Integration Theory, and [more]

I earned my pizza money since middle school and throughout high school, college, and post-college working and volunteering as both a tutor in all kinds of academic subjects and as a private swimming lesson instructor. As such, I have experience working with people of all different kinds of learning styles, ages, and disabilities. As a consulting actuary, my specialty is tutoring the preliminary actuarial examinations (1/P, 2/FM, 3/MFE, 4/C, S, 5, and MLC). I have passed the first seven exami... [more]

I am a third year PhD chemistry student at Harvard University. I graduated in 2014 as a chemistry major and math minor from Boston College. In addition to my coursework, I conducted research in a physical chemistry nanomaterials lab at BC for three years and now research molecular inorganic systems at Harvard. At Harvard, I worked as a Teaching Fellow for General Chemistry for two semesters. I am qualified and have experience in tutoring elementary, middle school, high school, and college le... [more]

I have a Ph.D. in physics and speak calculus daily in my professional life. As a tutor, I liken calculus to parallel parking, or driving a car with a stick shift, or parallel parking in a car with a stick shift -- on a hill. That is, it can seem impossible at first, but any 15-year-old can learn how to do it, and after a fashion it becomes second nature. My teaching strategy for calculus is to focus on pattern recognition in problem solving. Triage is the essential first step in assessing a problem in either differential or integral calculus and they key to picking a successful solution approa [more]
