An Experiment - Covering Single-Variate Calculus
This series was cancelled by the tutor on September 5, 2023. We're very sorry–you can explore more Calculus series here. All 1:1 and group chats related to this series are disabled 7 days after the last session.
We will cover every topic normally covered in AP Calculus BC, and some more topics if there is enough demand. The catch? I don't plan to do this bound to any standardized curriculum. This can be as intensive or as light as learners want; I plan to try teaching this way to a small group of people, and then try this on a broader scale. There will be no lesson plan for most sessions; I will try to be as flexible as possible and questions, while they will be prepared before the class, will be fit according to whichever topic I happen to be talking about, written by me for the class (though questions from other sources can inspire my questions). Seeing as this will be in a summer, the series will be a little fast-paced; for this reason, I recommend having a very good base in math topics covered before calculus, such as geometry and algebra, before joining this series as a learner. Despite the lack of a concrete base curriculum, I will have a set order in which I plan to teach things, that is to say there will be an always flexible syllabus keeping track of our progress. There will be weekly assessments, but they are purely for you to see your own progress. I hope that you will all enjoy this series!

✋ ATTENDANCE POLICY
You must attend every session, unless you give me 24 hours prior notice with valid reason. After either two absences in a row or three total absences, whichever comes first, a learner may be withdrawn from the series. Office hours will be offered for those who have missed my primary sessions; if you missed a certain session, showing up to the weekly office hours session that week, even if you did not given me 24 hours advance notice, will absolve you of any unexcused absences that week, so long as you spend your time wisely in the office hours.

About the Tutor
Hey there! I'm a current undergraduate freshman at Stony Brook University, and I love the STEM fields most out of all my subjects in school! With that being said, though I tutor mostly competitive math nowadays, I also tutor high school math and science. I also join many sessions on Schoolhouse, because there are so many things to learn and enjoy in Schoolhouse - though I haven't joined many series recently, I had a lot of fun in Taeho's Korean Camp last summer! Outside of Schoolhouse, I love to play basketball and Pokemon.
