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..."
Neha "...Every student learns differently. Sometimes, changing the perspective or the explanation can be the epiphany that a student needs in order to understand a concept. Nothing is more exciting and satisfying as seeing a student understand a concept they did not previously understand..."

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..."

Akshay "...Tutoring and giving back has always been important to me. After tutoring multiple subjects through my chapter of the National Honors Society in high school, I received additional training by means of formal classes, seminars, and advanced instruction during my freshman year of college. For the past four years, I have taught middle-schoolers facing educational inequities in the St..."
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..."
Marco "...During my undergraduate education I participated in mathematics research applied to chemistry for four years and subsequently have a lot of different perspectives on how to explain math to non-mathematicians. As the middleman between the math department and chemistry departments professors I spent time explaining my work in two different ways. My research was funded by the National Science Foundation under the Mathematics in Life Sciences Fellowship..."
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..."
