Our Approach to AP Calculus Prep

Advanced Placement examinations are exams offered by the College Board and are taken each May. The tests contain cumulative content spanning from the year-long Advanced Placement courses. All AP exams have a multiple-choice section and a free-response section.

When studying alongside our AP Calculus Exam tutors for 1-on-1 preparation, the pair creates a flexible and fluid study plan that focuses on the student’s strengths to supplement their areas of improvement. Depending on the student’s schedule, the tutor can meet as often as daily, either online or in-person at the student’s location of choice. The tutors present their proven methods and help you create the best strategy that works for your needs. In addition, the pair studies the body of the test- from the backbone of the language to the multiple choice, reasoning and elimination.

In order to deliver a personalized experience, we start out by learning about our students. In order to grasp your history, or lack-there-of, with AP testing, we ask the following questions:

  • 1
    What year are you in school?
  • 2
    Are you just beginning your AP Calculus Exam prep?
  • 3
    Have you taken an AP test in the past?
  • 4
    Are you struggling with content or strategy?
  • 5
    What is your target score?
  • 6
    When would you like to begin?
