Award-Winning Calculus Tutors in Washington, DC
Allen "...Now, in my day job, I do strategy work at a large Financial Services firm in the D.C. metro-area. I have a great deal of tutoring experience with people of all ages, both formally and informally. Among many experiences, I've taught SAT prep in a classroom setting, willed a friend in high school to pass his AP Physics exam by studying with him every day before practice, stayed up many a night in college meticulously editing essays for friends, and been a Big Brother (the program, that is). My philosophy around tutoring simply revolves around developing a vested interest in students' successes..."
Jarvis "...Since my graduation, I have regularly tutored different mathematics and science courses such as Physics, Geometry, Algebra I and II, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus. I especially enjoy using guided practice to help others understand a little more about the material and its implications for the real world. I believe that I'm a good tutor because I understand from experience what it's like to not have a natural affinity for mathematics..."
Mayuri "...I am comfortable tutoring students of any age. As a tutor, my main goal is to guide the student and help them gain confidence and eventually be able to understand the subject without my help. Therefore, my style of tutoring involves teaching the core concept of the subject..."
Craig "...While I always enjoyed tutoring undergraduate students, I found great satisfaction in teaching Math to struggling teenagers. From my experiences, I learned that anyone can tackle basic mathematical ideas if they are given proper patience and instruction. Furthermore, I have learned that every student has a unique style of learning..."
Khardiata "Teaching and tutoring are my passion because they give me the opportunity to have a positive impact on my students' learning experiences as I help them reach their full potential. My experiences as a French Teacher's Assistant at Carleton College and a Summer Science Teacher at Breakthrough-Minneapolis have taught me to utilize different tutoring and teaching techniques to accommodate students with different learning styles. I look forward to working with you!."
Eric "...Although my teaching experience was in Economics, I am very familiar with algebra, calculus, statistics and trigonometry, as mathematics plays an important role in graduate level Economics study. I did very well in the GRE Quantitative section, and I am more than willing to share my successful experience with you. I enjoy making friends with my students because I believe communication is the key in teaching..."

Linh "...From private home lessons to teaching a classroom of 7-10 elementary kids, I have always enjoyed being able to use my knowledge to help others succeed. My strongest subjects are Math and Biology, but nothing fascinates me more than the studies of natural lives around us and the molecular mechanisms of our very own body. Seeing my students understand and enjoy the subject I am passionate about is my utmost joy in tutoring..."
Justin "... My teaching style centers on explaining concepts and making students think there way through problems. I find many students are unsure of exactly how to study for Math exams and I believe I provide good instruction for how students may best prepare in their personal study time. Generally, when students have difficulty with problems I prefer to have them work them for themselves and talk them through any stumbles they may have..."
Joseph "...I'm a recent graduate with a degree in Materials Science and Engineering which means I have a broad background in the subjects of Math, Chemistry, and Physics. I'm following in my dad's footsteps -- currently he teaches Computer Science -- and look to him for what it means to be a good teacher. My goal as a tutor is to provide my students with knowledge but also with the confidence to succeed both academically and personally..."
Joubert "...I want the students to understand the rationale behind the question. Yes, the student may get a specific question right, but what about other problems? Will the student have the skill set to solve other problems. To aid the student in learning, I draw in examples from other disciplines or my own experience when I learned the topic and what helped me in my own understanding..."
