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..."
Michelle "...I tutored for the upper division mathematics center at my university, while attending college, as well as through a program called Upward Bound. Upward Bound is a program dedicated to low income or first generation college students prepare for college. My extensive experience tutoring students has taught me patience as well as different ways to approach and teach the different topics of mathematics..."
Christian "...Right now, I am so very excited to inspire others to learn through tutoring. I have tutored in Math and Science for over five years, and I love seeing others become as passionate as I am about topics the topics I help with. My mother was a teacher, and I learned most from her how energy and positive attitudes can set a great example for students. Therefore, I am thrilled to bring my positive energy and attitude as I patiently help others learn. I am eager to tell anyone interested a little more about myself..."

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..."
Bernard "...I watched as math transformed from an intimidating obstacle into a tool for their minds. Since then I've tutored dozens of students in everything from elementary school math to algebra and trigonometry and also college level courses like Calculus and Statistics. Additionally, I taught Algebra I &II full-time in the classroom. Just as my teacher predicted, instruction came naturally for me. I like to take the creative and fun approach I have with music and use it as a tool to share my passion for mathematics while also helping students see its usefulness in so many career paths and life situations..."

Francois "...I believe that every student learns differently and that as a tutor part of my job is to convey information in a way that is tailored to the students learning style. Subjects that are more difficult for a student can be more easily understood, if explained in a way that is best for the student. When I am not studying for classes, I enjoy creating engineering projects, learning new skills, computer programming, and occasionally playing video games..."
Julia "... I started self-employed tutoring younger students. I have also tutored high school and college students and have enjoyed every single minute of it! No student is the same, and with my experience, I have learned to adapt to different tutoring and learning styles. Accommodating to a student's needs is something challenging but extremely rewarding..."
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..."
Andrew "...My favorite subject to tutor is algebra! I have a lot of varied interests, from math and science, to theatre, to singing, to video games, and more! I love tutoring because I love learning! Throughout my educational endeavors, I have always loved those moments where connections are made and things make sense, and I want to be the catalyst for those moments in other people--especially in topics that I find fascinating myself. I have always been an empathetic, patient person and love figuring out the best way that each person learns. Everyone is different, and so a different strategy is needed for each person. I am also a segway tour guide, and while teaching my guests how to ride a segway I have learned that I am not afraid to take the time to learn the best approach for each student..."

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..."
