    We had a very positive experience with Alissa as a tutor for our pod of 5th grade boys from January - June 2020. She cared a lot about the boys and worked hard to create meaningful activities for them. The pod experience was invaluable … More for all of our families during a difficult year and we were so grateful to have found this partnership! We also want to appreciate Craig for helping to match us with a tutor on very short notice after we had cycled through a few folks who were not able to see the commitment through. Thanks for sticking with us!

He is flexible, responsive to our needs/schedule as … More a family, and a delight to be with. We are also thankful that Craig at Themba Tutors really "gets it" and partnered us with such a wonderful tutor who was a great fit for our girl.

    My child worked with Gillian D virtually for math enrichment. She is an excellent teacher. She took time to understand my child's specific learning style and provided tools that would be engaging. She was kind and empathetic- really … More made it her goal to connect with my child and build trust and rapport. My child started the school year with confidence and without the typically "brain-drain" that occurs over the summer, thanks to Gillian.

    Our son started in a new high school, 100% remote, and was really struggling with Latin and Physics. I found Themba Tudors online and had an initial call with Craig, who was very knowledgeable, responsive, and found 2 amazing tutors for … More us. Both the Latin and the physics tutors were fantastic, connected with my son really well and helped him go from 'failing' grade to 'honors'! I will for sure continue using (and recommending!) Themba Tutors. Thank you, C, K, and W!

  • Calculus Tutors,High School College Students, Themba Tutors Christine Gennetti ★★★★★ a year ago
    As an adult student diagnosed with a learning disability during grad school, I knew I needed help dealing with my Master's program's demanding workload. I was seriously considering dropping out when I was referred to Themba Tutors. … More I was paired up with a wonderful tutor, Julie, who was a total lifesaver. I learned many techniques that I can utilize in the future as I embark on the next phase of my career.
    I can wholeheartedly say after working with Themba for two years that I would not have finished my program without this organization. And I am so thankful I selected them.
  • Calculus Tutors,High School College Students, Themba Tutors Fabiola FITZPATRICK ★★★★★ a year ago
    We were introduced to a wonderful tutor: Mcedwyn. He and our son, a freshman in college, worked well together. As a result, our son’s grades significantly improved. The tutor taught our son subject content and various methods to effectively … More study for quizzes and exams. Our son was also taught time management and organization. My son’s experience with the tutor made the first year of college a less intimidating experience.
  • Calculus Tutors,High School College Students, Themba Tutors Jude Eugene ★★★★★ a year ago
    We have been with our tutor, Cailin Schiller, for two years, from 5th - 7th grade. She started as an executive functioning tutor with my daughter. From the start, she demonstrated a depth of expertise and a selective use of techniques skillfully … More adapted to my daughter’s ADHD and Math disability. Cailin made Math accessible and understandable to her in a way that even her teachers had not been able to do. She differentiated reading, writing and math tasks and assignments to tailor them to my daughter’s unique learning differences. Not only did it have an effect on her grades and her work efficiency, but she finally could do her work with less anxiety. Even my daughter’s teachers used Cailin’s guidance to modify their work with her. But most importantly, she became my daughter’s favorite resource. I can’t say how invaluable Cailin has been to my daughter’s progress and well-being. I’d recommend her a million times over. She is a gem.

As a therapist myself, I now regularly recommend Themba to my patients. A much needed and well provided service to the community!!

    We were very lucky to have found Edwouine Swift, my son's therapist through Themba Tutors. Thomas is 12 years old, and it is extremely difficult to get him to write. Edwouine just works her magic with him, he adores her and is so … More eager to follow her guidance. I have no doubt she will be a positive driving force in his academic future.

What is Calculus?

Calculus is a branch of mathematics that studies the rates of change. It was first invented in the 17th century by Isaac Newton, followed by Gottfried Leibniz, who created the notations that are still in use today.
 
Before calculus was developed, mathematics only dealt with static calculations. This means calculations were only possible if an object is not in motion or perfectly still. But the universe is constantly moving, and the inability to measure, determine, and account for these changes presents challenges. Calculus was instrumental in determining the changes in particles, stars, and matter as they move and change in real time.
 
Calculus is divided into two types. Differential calculus studies and determines the rate of change a quantity. Meanwhile, integral calculus deals with finding the quantity when the rate of change is known.
Calculus Tutors,High School College Students, Themba Tutors
Just like most advanced mathematics courses, students often complain about the lack of real-world applications of calculus. But this couldn’t be farther from the truth. Aside from astronomy and space travel, calculus is used in a wide variety of fields, including ones that people don’t normally expect. This includes statistics, economics, engineering, physics, and even medicine, which uses calculus to figure out how the body interacts and reacts to medications

What Are the Advantages of Getting a Private Calculus Tutor?

  • Individualized learning

Working with a private calculus tutor allows your child to have an individualized learning experience that is designed to address his or her specific needs. A private calculus tutor will be able to address your child’s weaknesses and focus on strengthening these areas. This is something that teachers are not always able to provide in the classroom.

 

  • One-on-one attention

A private calculus tutor will devote time to get to know your child and understand his or her learning style. By doing so, your child’s tutor can tailor teaching methods and tutoring sessions to better engage your child and maximize his or her learning time and potential.

 

  • Improves academic performance

Private calculus tutoring is important if you want to prepare your child for tests and exams. Your child’s private calculus tutor will identify areas that he or she is struggling with and work on them together. This is to ensure that your child is well-equipped and confident when taking important exams, participating in classroom activities, and answering questions from their teacher. In no time, you and your child will see a marked improvement in their grades and school performance.

 

 

  • Improves attitude towards learning and school

One of the things that private calculus tutors aim for is to make learning calculus fun. Feedback and positive reinforcement are key in minimizing your child’s frustration as well as making sure the tutoring lessons incorporate their interests.

 

 

  • Encourages independent learning

Our private calculus tutors encourage students to take initiative in accomplishing their school work and teach them to manage their learning time and pace.

 

 

  • Improves self-esteem and confidence

Once your child gains a better understanding of the subject matter, he or she becomes more confident in school because private tutoring has provided him or her with the skills and resources necessary to succeed in class.

 

 

  • Better work and study habits

Our private calculus tutors will not only help with your child’s lessons, they will also make sure he or she develops strong study habits and better time-management skills. Fostering good study habits early on will also benefit students later on in life.

 

 

  • Safe and positive space for learning

Whether it’s in-person or online calculus tutoring, your child will be able to learn in an environment that is free from distractions. Our private tutors will work one-on-one with your child and ensure that he or she is comfortable to ask questions and raise concerns whenever he or she encounters difficult material. This is important as some students would rather keep their questions to themselves to avoid feeling embarrassed or self-conscious in front of their peers.

 

 

  • Better social and behavioral skills

Privat tutoring boosts your child’s communication skills and encourages a more positive relationship with classmates and teachers.

 

 

  • Challenges those who need it

Students who struggle with school are not the only ones who can benefit from private tutoring. A private tutor can also help and guide students who are excelling in class and want to be challenged more or explore more advanced concepts.
