Hello, I'm Josh, one of the top tutors in the San Francisco Bay Area, and I look forward to helping you! I have been a fulltime independent tutor for a decade. My students have gone on to elite universities such as Caltech, Yale, Berkeley, University of Chicago, and UPenn. With my service you get someone far more qualified than a tutor from a massproduction tutoring company: I have a decade of private tutoring and classroom teaching experience, and Chicago Public Schools hired me to design the curricula for Algebra, Trigonometry, Precalculus, and AP Calculus (my syllabus being approved by the College Board). I am confident you will appreciate my expertise and friendly, holistic approach. My students are people first and foremost, and facilitating their academic and personal growth is of paramount importance to me.

No matter where my students are in the spectrum, I help them move up in a friendly, supportive, and patient way!

I have 5's on the AP Physics C and AP Chemistry, and I took Honors Physics at the University of Chicago (AP 5 isn't enough to place out of Honors Physics at U of C), so I am pretty comfortable teaching Physics and Chemistry as well.
Calculus can be tough. There's a reason Newton and Leibniz are still famous, even after 300 years!
The essence of a derivative is to tell you how fast one variable is changing with respect to another, by taking the slope at a given point. This can be interpreted as speed, rate of growth/decay, how many residents are moving to the Bay Area each day, etc. An integral (or antiderivative) reverses this process, and tells the result of accumulated change (how far an object has traveled, how much growth/decay, how many total residents moved over a 5 year period, etc.
Conceptually it can be explained in a few sentences, but actually doing calculations and applying that principle requires a bit of mathematical finesse. Fortunately, I can teach you that. I know calculus inside and out. I not only designed and taught a College Boardapproved AP Calculus course, but I also took a proofbased math course where we constructed all the machinery of calculus from the ground up (not just the "how it works", but the "why" and where it comes from). And of course, I scored a 5 on the AP exam (the highest score) and have helped many students do the same.
