...I gauge where the student is at in knowing the concepts by having him work out the problems. Every problem has two parts: the first is recognizing what kind of problem it is (i.e., quadratic equation) and the second is the mechanics of working it out (i.e., arithmetic skills). I have been tutoring since I was in high school myself. I keep it simple and fun!

...There are no stupid questions. I have asked the most basic of questions in my calculus class that I felt so stupid about asking because I didn't understand a basic concept. Yet, because I voiced my concerns and pushed my ego aside, I earned a much higher grade than most of my peers.

...I have been using it professionally for years, because it is one of the math subjects that connects fully to the physical world we live in. That makes calculus very intuitive and easy to explain. What makes calculus difficult is that it requires strong math skills in foundational math up to the level of trigonometry, and any holes or weaknesses in those areas need to be addressed.
