The Gateway to Post-Secondary Mathematics
Calculus is the first step in post-secondary mathematics, and an exciting step in math education. It is the first course that truly allows students to see the exciting things that you can do with math, but it’s also a course that presents a variety of interesting challenges. Success in the course requires a strong understanding of both the theory and the techniques that are taught, and these theories and techniques are crucial in further pursuits of mathematics, or other scientific studies such as physics, chemistry, or engineering.
Our programs focus on giving students the tools that they need to successfully navigate calculus, and come out of the course with the essential skills and knowledge that they need to carry forward into future courses. In particular, our tutoring programs provide students with:
A Clear Understanding of Important Calculus Concepts
Often, students struggle with calculus theory. Calculus textbooks and lectures often present concepts in ways that are not clear for students, so we focus on presenting those concepts in ways that are easy to understand. We don’t worry about intricate notations or complicated language, we simply present theories and concepts in ways that are clear and approachable for students. That way, students can actually apply those theories effectively in the course.
A Toolbox of Key Skills
The key to calculus is mastering skills and techniques, and understanding how to apply them to solving problems. The volume of content in a calculus course can be overwhelming, so it’s important to know what skills and techniques need to be applied to what questions. Our experienced calculus tutors not only help students build up there toolbox of skills, but also help them understand how and when to apply them.
