Your Child can Get Better Calculus Scores
AP Calculus/Calculus 1 students will improve their confidence, understanding, and grades.
What is it and who is it for?
Calculus Crew is a Calculus community designed to help students learn Calculus online. It is meant to supplement a Calculus course, not as a replacement. By joining, you will get:
Access to live group coaching sessions twice a week, and recordings of sessions
Workbooks of notes and extra practice problems between sessions
Access to a private Facebook group to ask questions and support others
Calculus Crew is right for you if you are enrolled in AP Calculus AB/BC or Calculus I. Whether you're just starting Calculus or preparing for the AP Calculus exam, this group can help you develop a solid Calculus understanding. If you are looking for an AP Calculus tutor, this may be a better option!
You should have already taken Algebra, Geometry, and Pre-Calculus. The first topic is a review of pre-requisite skills from Algebra, Geometry, and Pre-Calculus so don't worry if you need a refresher.
Calculus Crew is not right for you if you are enrolled in Pre-Calculus, or Calculus II or higher.
Benefits and Results
Gain a deeper understanding of Calculus
Feel confident in your ability to learn Calculus
Improve test scores and prepare for upcoming exams
Learn Calculus online at a convenient time and at your own pace
How It Works
By joining Calculus Crew, you will get access to content covering:
Foundation (pre-requisite knowledge)
Applications of Derivatives
Applications of Integrals
Go through the content and practice problems at your own pace, as it aligns with your Calculus class. The content comes from College Board standards.
Join the group coaching sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays from 7-8 pm ET to answer any of your submitted questions and dive deeper into Calculus concepts. Most Calculus students say their tests are more challenging than homework assignments. Group sessions focus on those challenging questions and incorporate previous AP exam questions. Getting exposure to the rigorous problems early in the year gives students confidence going into exams.
Have questions after hours? Post on the private Facebook group so you are constantly supported in learning Calculus.
I believe all students can learn and be successful in Calculus. I help AP Calculus AB/BC and Calculus I students improve their understanding, confidence, and test scores by explaining concepts simply and in multiple ways.
Getting access to only group sessions with Meryl would cost about $360/month. That doesn't include the added value from additional resources and access to the private Facebook group.
Join today for $147/month AND… you’ll be locked into that price for as long as you remain a member. That’s about $18/session! Compare that to the price of individual tutoring.
Interested in individual help and Calculus Crew's group sessions? Sign up for the VIP Calculus Crew. In addition to the two weekly group sessions through Calculus Crew, students get a 30 minute individual tutoring session with me each week. The cost is $267/month, comparable to the individual tutoring, but the opportunity to meet three times a week instead of just one.
More Success Stories
Why choose Calculus Crew over one-on-one tutoring?
You can make more progress, quicker. Most one-on-one tutoring students meet once a week. With Calculus Crew, you have the opportunity to meet multiple times a week, have access to resources in between sessions, and a Facebook group to get questions answered sooner. The best way to learn Calculus, or any math, is through practice. Calculus Crew offers more opportunities for practice with a Calculus expert.
Many Calculus students struggle in math for the first time, so this community is designed to support one another and help students realize they're not alone.
Calculus Crew is ideal for students who understand the basics and need extra support on when to apply certain rules or how to solve challenging AP level questions. If your child is significantly behind, individual tutoring may be preferred, or can be added on with the VIP Calculus Crew.
The VIP Calculus Crew experience offers access to both Calculus Crew opportunities and individual tutoring. In addition to the two weekly group sessions through Calculus Crew, students get a 30 minute individual tutoring session with Meryl each week.
Should I enroll in regular Calculus Crew or VIP Calculus Crew?
The difference is that VIP offers a 30 minute individual tutoring session each week. This is ideal for students who:
have numerous questions on their homework, where we may not get through all of them in the group session
are more than two letter grades below where they'd like to be
want support for class projects or detailed assignments outside of the scope of AP Calculus
Otherwise, regular Calculus Crew is designed for students who have a few homework questions, and are looking for more practice on challenging questions they'll encounter on tests or the AP Calculus exam.
How do group coaching sessions work?
Students can submit questions prior to sessions. Having experience teaching AP Calculus, Meryl will choose additional problems aligned with the pacing of the course. Problems will have varying levels of difficulty and include previous AP exam questions. Getting extra Calculus practice helps students gain confidence and understanding.
Starting off, two group sessions will be offered a week (Mondays and Wednesdays 7-8pm ET). As the community grows to more than 10 students, additional group sessions will be offered so students get appropriate individual/small group instruction.
Calculus Crew sessions are similar to an after-school help hour with the teacher—they’re optional and students can show up as long or as little as they need. For example, if only Mondays are convenient, or if students have to come late or leave early, that’s completely fine.
Which technology/platforms are used?
Zoom for group coaching sessions
Google Classroom for additional resources/practice problems
How can I track my progress?
The resources in Google Classroom go in sequential order of the AP Calculus/Calculus I curriculum. Answers are provided for the workbooks so you can track your progress and see what topics you need more practice on. Each chapter ends with a quiz to assess understanding.
