Memorizing steps and equations doesn't work in math. You need to start with the foundation and understanding,

The next step is to go through a variety of problems and learn important problem solving skills. With good explanation and a solid understanding, and with practice, you will do better and enjoy math.

Calculus Tutoring

QE Math Tutor

Once the student understands the concept, the next step is to go over a variety of problems, step by step. The key is to explain the rationale behind the questions. Because the problems are advanced in Pre-calculus, it is important for students to get exposed to a variety of problems and knowing how they are related to the core concepts.

Since a lot of different concepts (calculus + previous years) are embedded in different types of problems, it is important for the student to understand how to approach them based on recognizing certain characteristics. That requires good explanation from QE tutors.

Some of the units, such as integrals, will require more detailed explanation. These concepts are even more advanced. Other units such as limits and derivative are an extension of Algebra 2 and pre-calculus

Once the student understand these, things will fall together, and Calculus will be much easier.

With good lesson and practice, you will certainly excel in Calculus!

It depends on your grade. If you are 80 or above, once a week should be fine. If you get under 70, we will strongly recommend to do twice a week.

What age is best to get a tutor?

We have students coming from grade 5 to university. Grade 5 to 7 will be a good starting age, where the basic foundation is important and you are not doing catch-up. In this case you can nurture your child's skill and interest and build a good routine.
