# Award-Winning Calculus Tutors for Littleton, CO

Spencer ...a recent graduate of Stony Brook University (SUNY) from where I received my Bachelor of Sciences in Applied Mathematics & Statistics with a concentration in Physical Sciences. Throughout my undergraduate career, I was fortunate enough to participate in several research-oriented internships in New York and Maryland. These allowed me to gain invaluable experience and apply my knowledge to real-life applications. In addition, I have experience tutoring fellow classmates in courses such as physics, probability/statistics, and...

Jacob ...been a tutor for over 2 years and have helped many students from the ages of 9 to 22. I have helped students study for tests, quizzes, college entrance exams, SAT an ACT tests, SAT subject tests, and AP exams. I specialize in Math and Science subjects because I am one of those weird people that enjoy those subjects very much! My favorite part of tutoring is getting to know my students and their families....

Aaron I connect with people best through sharing ideas. The majority of my spare time is spent trying to simplify or find alternate proofs of basic theorems to make them more intuitive.... Focusing on beauty solves many problems a teacher faces. If I am attending a lecture about The Great Gatsby, I will be eager if the speaker tells of the beauty she sees, rather than a quick and dirty type of analysis. I regularly talk to people who admit math wasn't their favorite subject in school. Some were self-conscious. Some had gaps they never filled. Some just didn't care. Whatever the case, I admit to them that math is my favorite art form with as much room for expression as sculpting or jazz. I claim that mathematicians are half artists, half observers of fine art. My conversants often tell me it is an epiphany for them to think of math as such, and that it helps heal their math wound. A marvelous way I have found to unveil beauty in the classroom is by using surprise. I like to present ideas from a simple perspective, discuss them briefly, then release a theorem. Thales' theorem (the diameter of a circle subtends a right angle to any point on the circumference) is a great example, especially with the aid of Java applets. After playing a bit with triangles by moving points around in a worksheet, it's surprising to be able to connect two structures as basic as a right triangle and a diameter. Next in importance to marveling at beauty, I want students to learn to think critically to solve problems. Understandably, some students have never had guidance past high school drills. All the more, problem solving should be emphasized and revisited throughout college curriculum. I have many years of experience in problem solving competitions and a collection of principles regarding problem solving that I like to follow. One is about inverse problems. Consider the following: if baseball cards are five cents apiece and shipping costs fifty cents, how many cards will one dollar buy? After making the arithmetic clear, students had better know how to calculate the forward problem, i.e. "How much will x number of cards cost?" I'm depending on them knowing the forward problem because we covered it last week, but it is important to bring it out in more than just a mention so the students have a comfortable base to start. It's like revisiting rational numbers before diving into irrationals. They are intrinsically tied, and it gives the class confidence to start with old material.

Ami ...school and high school. Some say its a dead language, but trust me, I have found many uses for Latin that are not just limited to SAT/ACT vocabulary (although it is also helpful then). I attend Rice University, and I am a Biochemistry and Cell Biology major. I am Pre-Med right now, and I hope to one day join Doctors Without Borders to help set up free clinics in underprivileged countries and teach people about...

Gregory ...with a concrete example, it is much more likely they will retain the information. My clients range from high school students to matured adults who are continuing their education. Most recently at Columbia I taught recitation classes composed of 15-25 students. This gave me a thorough understanding of my class’s aptitude resulting in the generation of compatible tests. This wide range of exposure allows me to assess the student’s specific needs, helping to foment their...

Josh ...my university I work for the Penn Tutoring Center, mentor high school students in West Philadelphia, and hold leadership positions within my fraternity, Tau Epsilon Phi. I especially enjoy tutoring in math and physics. These subjects are typically intimidating for many students, and my goal as a tutor is to reveal their simplicity and make them more universally accessible and doable, particularly for those pursuing further education in engineering, medicine, or other sciences.

Elisha ...Trigonometry, Algebra) as well as SAT math, English, and science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Biochemistry). I really enjoy tutoring math and English! Math always has an answer to work towards and can be taught using various mediums. English is also a favorite subject of mine as I love to read and write and love reading the works of others. I like to tutor subjects by working through problems with students and practicing problems. Outside of...

John ...as a tutor and as a Supplemental Instructor for one year. In addition, I had the opportunity to shadow a local high school math teacher. At SLU, I worked in their Tutoring Center for one semester and during my second semester I taught a section of College Algebra. I am able to tutor many different areas of math, including Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Calculus. Of these, my favorite is definitely Calculus, because I think that...

Eric ...Electrical Engineering classes, such as Circuit Theory and Digital Logic. I enjoy tutoring Algebra, Trigonometry, and Programming because they provide an understanding of patterns and logic, which I believe are useful problem-solving techniques that can be utilized throughout life. My tutoring style includes teaching how to efficiently and effectively set up and solve problems for tests and explaining real world applications for advanced math and how it relates to Electrical Engineering. In my spare time,...

Kevin ...my Bachelor's of Science from Rutgers University, where I studied Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in Aerospace Engineering. As an undergraduate there, I taught my own Physics class to freshmen and sophomore Engineering students for three years, after being professionally trained in identifying individual learning styles and using modern educational methods to best help each student. I believe in teaching, "the why" and developing skills rather than hammering steps and formulas into memory. I make...
