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 tutored students in Calculus for over 15 years, both privately and for the Lexington Public school system as a Home/Hospital tutor. I truly enjoy and have been fortunate to have helped each student gain confidence, be successful learning Calculus, improve their grades and meet their goals. I am certified; my degree is in math. I have tutored students at all levels up through AP and all abilities, from struggling to gifted, as well as those with special needs. Do you want better grades and test scores? Do you want to get the most from your classes? Is something holding you back from doin [more]

Calculus is a highly practical branch of mathematics with many applications in the natural sciences, economics, and engineering. The good news is that it's not as difficult as it may seem - at least not basic single-variable calculus. I can help you overcome any obstacles you may have with respect to differentiation, integration, and any of their numerous applications. I can also help with related problems of limits, infinite series, and numerical methods for solving basic calculus problems. I am an experienced tutor in math, chemistry, and physics currently working for the Newton Public Schoo [more]

While pursuing my degree in chemistry, I took 3 semesters of calculus. Since graduating I have stayed interested in math, and I have taken courses in linear algebra and statistics. I have tutored students in a variety of math courses including calculus, geometry, and algebra. Hello, I am a friendly and knowledgeable math and science tutor. I have ten years of experience tutoring and teaching. I have a bachelor?s degree in Chemistry from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and a master?s degree in Education from the Boston Teacher Residency. I enjoy helping students broaden their [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 offer science and math teaching for under-challenged, over-challenged, home schooled, twice-exceptional, interrupted, and other non-traditional learners. I have ten years of experience as a teacher, and have been a dedicated private tutor since 2013. I've worked with many wonderful students who are constantly teaching me that there's a different "best teaching strategy" for every learner. The modern classroom doesn't serve the needs of all students. Too many students believe that they ar... [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]
