I have a Bachelor's degree in Math and in Physics from San Francisco State University, from where I graduated summa cum laude and was the top student in my class. I also have a Master's degree in Physics from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Studying physics requires a LOT of math, so my training in it has trained me very well in math as well.
Experience: 12 years
I first took Calculus my last year of high school, and I remember it as being quite a paradigm shift from all the math I knew. I then went on to take many more calculus and calculus-based classes, so I became used to these concepts, but I always remember my first encounter with it when I tutor it, since this is more useful than my current knowledge to those who are just starting. It helps me think from their perspective, making me a much more effective tutor.
Of course, this only works when paired with my current, extensive knowledge of calculus, acquire both from taking math classes and from my constant use of it while doing physics.
