A calculus tutor is someone who provides tutoring services in specific field of the calculus, which is a branch of mathematics.
Calculus is a specific area of mathematics in which the focus of studies is the two types of calculus- differentiation and the integration, the subject is usually taught in high schools. Some students face relatively difficulty in understanding the concepts of the calculus while many of the students lack on the ability to understand the use and techniques in calculus functions and the rules of calculating the angles and measuring the side of the triangles.
The most common problem that the students face while learning calculus is the understanding of limits, integrals and functions while knowing which formula to be used to perform the calculus. A calculus tutor provides the necessary tutoring classes to people in group or using the one on one class basis, to let the people understand the parts of calculus better and solve the problems in a better way.
The calculus tutors are commonly professionals in the field of calculus, the teachers of the subject or even college students who have expertise in the subject and provide tutoring services for school students or junior students as a way to earn some extra money or as a volunteer work. However, the most common approach is to hire a private tutor who visits your home every day and provides you one on one lesson on the subject. Private tutors will almost never provide their service as a volunteer work or free of cost and you have to pay a fixed charge for their services on monthly or weekly basis. This type of tutoring can help students to overcome their troubles in understanding the concepts of calculus and get better grades in class exams.
There are a number of reasons for which students seek tutoring services in calculus. Some students take this assistance to improve their performance in mathematics while some others will do it to solve their problems related to calculus and the understanding of limits and function in differentiation and integration just to clear some exam or test, like some college admission test and other scholarship tests. The need of a calculus tutor is not just limited to students but some adult professionals in various businesses may also find need of learning calculus and the calculation skills of angels for improvement in their work skills.
A calculus tutor can use a number of methods to implement while teaching students the calculus lessons. The usual approach for teaching calculus is to explain a particular topic and then going through it to using some examples soling and then giving students to solve some problems on their own as well. Then the tutor may check for their solutions and provide them with the mistake analysis of their solution to improve their approach minimizing chances of mistakes in future. Most of the calculus tutors also issue some assignment as homework for the students which they have to complete by the next classes. The private tutor can help students in a lot better way than the teacher does in school as the tutor gets more interactive time with the students to teach them the basic of caluculus.
