Calculus is easily my favorite mathematical discipline. It combines the abstract thinking of algebra, the real-world application of engineering and physics, and the elegance of language. I believe that I can demonstrate to any student how interesting calculus really is and in the process develop a total mastery of the topic. I received a score of 5 on the AP Calculus B/C exam, and was deemed both a National AP Scholar as well as National Merit Scholar in high school. I hold a Master's in Applied & Theoretical Mathematics from Cal State Channel Islands and a BA from UC Berkeley in Political S [more]

In Calculus, new concepts are introduced that require higher levels of abstract thinking. I work with students to deconstruct the more complex ideas into simpler, understandable pieces. From limits, to derivatives, to integrals, to refreshing necessary skills from earlier math, I have been working with students in this subject for years with great success. As for my educational qualifications, I have a degree from UCLA in Applied Mathematics, graduating Magna Cum Laude. This training has given me a rock-solid foundation in all the math subjects I teach. [more]

- Ph.D. in Statistics (minor in Mathematics) - I have used calculus a lot in my line of work as both a Statistician and a quantitative financial analyst. Actually, stochastic calculus, a special version of calculus where the functions are random entities, is one of my main job tools. Calculus is one of my favorite subjects to teach because it is a very powerful tool and it is simply amazing in how many ways it can be deployed in real-life applications. I have been helping college student for several years Whenever possible, I like to use Mathematica and use the software amazing graphics to [more]

My name is Andy, and I love math. I hold a BS and MS from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). In high school, I competed in various prestigious math and science competitions. I have gotten 800s in SAT math I and II. Learn from the best! I am patient and have great ability to make difficult concepts easy to understand. Over the years I have developed various techniques on how to solve problems very quickly and accurately. When looking at a problem, there may be multiple ways to solve... [more]

I have been tutoring calculus and precalculus for 3 years and spent 2 years as a physics teacher. No charge on your session unless you are fully satisfied. Valedictorian St. Bonaventure High School. BS in Physics from USC. Master's in Physics from Pitt. Self educated in Writing and Philosophy. I have 5 years of experience teaching college classes and tutoring on all levels of math, science and writing. My top priority is to give students a conceptual understanding of the material (as opposed to rote memorization). I do this by asking the student questions to gauge their understand... [more]

I'm currently a student at California Lutheran University and I love to help others in any way I can. My goal is to help each student better understand the material and challenge, but not overwhelm them. I have taught and tutored since I was a freshman in high school. I enjoy tutoring anything ranging from Geometry to Calculus. I also have taught piano lessons for 3 years and was a piano teacher aide prior to having my own studio. I additionally completed Calculus in highschool, and again... [more]

Calculus is the foundation for math, science and technology; it paves the way. Calculus is a subject that requires success in previous topics. My degree is in Pure Math which means I studied calculus a few days a week for multiple years. After completing my degree I started teaching calculus. It was more then 20 years ago but I am still excited when I can share this beautiful material with my students. What engenders a love of math? How can the door to its beautiful and fun aspects to be opened onto the numbers and their qualities, then remain open through algebra and beyond? Or, how and why d [more]

In the past several years I've very successfully tutored capable AP Calculus AB and BC students who wanted to raise their class grade and/or boost their AP Calculus exam score. I've also tutored college students taking single and multi-variable calculus, linear algebra and differential equations as well, both in-person and online. I first took Honors Calculus at a local college when I was in 9th grade, and I've been tutoring other students in calculus ever since. I'm very good at helping students understand the material tested in Calculus exams and how to boost their AP Calculus test scores, [more]

I'm a degreed engineer and manager with experience ranging from teaching Excel classes to helping the neighborhood kids (and adults!) with algebra and trigonometry. I really enjoy seeing the moment when the light bulb goes on in a student's head, when they gain understanding of a concept. I try to relate math problems to the "real world," and specifically to where the student wants to go with their own career, whenever possible. This tends to improve understanding and retention, as well as... [more]

If you were stranded on a deserted island, could you reinvent Algebra? Calculus? Trigonometry? I could! Not that that would be the most practical thing to do, but once you understand the basic concepts, you will be able to do the same. I am a strong believer in understanding concepts and knowing fundamentals, NOT in doing math by rote. I will certainly help you get your homework done and get better grades, but I will also make sure that you understand it! I teach students techniques... [more]
