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..."
Richard "... My passion for tutoring stems from my desire to help students understand the topics at hand. My tutoring motto is, "Knowledge is power". It is through knowledge where I can empower my students to strive for subject mastery As a tutor, I always seek to determine the student's best learning method in order to ensure that our time together is enjoyable and rewarding..."

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..."

Jessica "...I also taught Middle School Mathematics and 5th Grade Math. I am an excellent tutor because I listen to those I am tutoring to understand the fundamental misunderstanding that they are experiencing. I also bring a positive attitude and joy to the study of math that many students are missing..."
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..."
Michael "... When I am not working or tutoring, I enjoy following my Washington D.C. sports teams, and golf has recently become a weekend hobby of mine. I consider my personality to be my greatest asset, since I am able to relate with people from all different kinds of backgrounds and experiences..."
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..."
