Private Calculus Tutoring
Since 2005, we have helped students improve their confidence and grades in regular calculus, honors calculus, and AP Calculus.

Whether your child is struggling or simply looking for enrichment tutoring, our exceptional calculus tutors will create a customized approach tailored specifically for your needs. After each session, you’ll receive a detailed progress report to track your child’s improvement (view a real recap from one of our calculus tutoring sessions).
What Parents Say about Our Calculus Tutors
The parent of an 11th-grader at West Windsor Plainsboro North contacted us because her daughter needed immediate help with AP Calculus. We matched her with Gene, a math major at Princeton University who scored a 2400 on his SAT and has been competing in math competitions since sixth grade. Here’s what the student’s mom said after the first session, and later after a few more:
“S had nothing but great things to say about you. She gave you two thumbs up and told me that you were very helpful and that the session very much helped her for the test preparation. So THANK YOU to both you and Kevin who matched us up.”
“Gene - Once again, S was really happy with the session she had with you yesterday. She said that you are super smart, but have a way of ‘not making her feel stupid’ :). She also told me that what she thought might take 45+ minutes took the two of you 5 minutes to review and the remaining time you taught her about 6 classroom hours’ worth of material! THANK YOU very much and keep up the good work. Really appreciate your help.”

Thank you for considering us. We look forward to speaking with you and working with your child to help fulfill his or her academic potential.
Why Do Students Struggle with Calculus?
Calculus is used in a variety of fields, including physics, computer science, statistics, engineering, economics, and more. However, it can be a tricky subject. Many of our students struggle with the material itself, which includes concepts such as differentiation, integration, and limits. Beyond this, many calculus problems require multiple steps. If the student is not careful, and makes a simple algebraic mistake, they will arrive at the wrong answer. Unfortunately, some teachers do not give partial credit, so it’s especially important to emphasize the reduction of careless mistakes and the importance of explicitly stating every step and assumption.
Having a good teacher in calculus can make a huge difference in this class. Our calculus tutors are experts at the material and actually enjoy the subject. Some have won awards in math competitions or have quantitative majors where calculus is used extensively.
