Series Details

About

Overview:
Each week leading up to the AP Exam, we will practice for the Free Response Section by using real questions from past exams and going over topics that frequently appear in that section.
Currently, there will be one session per week (not all sessions are created yet) but I might add more leading up to the exam.

Background Knowledge: You should be in a Calculus 1 and 2 course of some kind--even if it's not AP. I will not be going through every single topic, just how the topics appear on the exam.

A Rough Outline of the Series: (might change based on what you all need)
First Week: Introduction and Icebreaker activity
Second and Third Week: What the FRQ section is like (format, timing, topics, etc.) Showing your work and justifying
Fourth-Eleventh Weeks: Content Review and practice using exam questions.
Twelfth Week-Onward: Timed drills, specific topic review, Timed practice of complete FRQ sections
May 13th: Ace the FRQ section on the BC exam!

Tutor Qualifications

I scored a 5 on the AP Calc BC exam last year and had the highest grade in my class. Though this is my first year at schoolhouse, I have been a peer tutor for two years now!

✋ ATTENDANCE POLICY

I highly recommend attending every session because the learning will be cumulative. If you can't make it for some reason, just let me know! You will be withdrawn if you miss more than 3 sessions without notifying the tutor.
