...Calculus is the most important mathematical tool for describing the real world. I've tutored dozens of students for hundreds of hours in calculus, so I'm familiar with the subtopics where students are most likely to struggle.

...I use diagnostic probes to explore students' mathematical thinking and help to shore up their knowledge gaps. Mathematics particularly is a subject where knowledge gaps in elementary arithmetic and algebra can cause cascading problems. A student who can easily factor a quadratic equation with multiple techniques may misunderstand "simpler" ideas, such as the meaning of negative exponents.
