Student Disability Center
- If you need special accommodation, please let Student Services know and the Student Disability Center (SDC) know, ideally in advance. Please be aware of the following message by the SDC: "Any student with a documented disability (e.g. physical, learning, psychiatric, vision, hearing, etc.) who needs to arrange reasonable accommodations must contact the Student Disability Center (SDC). Faculty are authorized to provide only the accommodations requested by the SDC. If you have any questions, please contact the SDC at 530-752-3184 or email@example.com.”
ACCESSING CALCULUS ROOM
- During remote instruction, the Calculus Room consists of a Zoom Channel staffed by calculus TAs, and a Calculus Request Queue form where students may seek help for any calculus class.
The Calculus Room Channel can be accessed through the Zoom desktop or mobile client.
- Register for a UC Davis Zoom account: Register Here.
- Install the Zoom client on your preferred device: Installation Directions Here.
- Join the "Calculus Room" channel on Zoom: Channel Instructions Here.
The Calculus Room is staffed on weekdays during instruction. It is closed on campus holidays.
|Monday||11AM - 7PM|
|Tuesday||11AM - 7PM|
|Wednesday||11AM - 7PM|
|Thursday||11AM - 7PM|
|Friday||11AM - 5PM|
Note: The Calculus Rooms are closed during Finals Week, breaks, holidays, and the summer months.
Please be courteous to your TAs and fellow students. Your UCD email account will be associated with any messages you share in the channel. Violations of the UC Davis academic code may be reported to your instructor.
- Please submit your questions through the Calculus Request Queue form. You will need to be signed into your UCD Google account.
- A TA will contact you over Zoom. Please make sure to watch for messages and incoming calls!
- If there have been a lot of requests, it may take a while for a TA to contact you. Since everything is remote, it might not be obvious to you that the room is very busy.
- Please do not direct message inactive TAs through Zoom. Calculus TAs hold hourly shifts in the channel, and may not watch their Zoom messages while off duty. Even if your course's TA is on Zoom, they might be easier to contact over email or canvas.

|Experience:||In the same way that Steve Kerr makes a better basketball coach than Michael Jordan, the best math teachers are not always the most genius and innately talented, but rather the most devoted and hardworking. Aside from spending many hours mastering the mathematics and physics curriculums myself, I have – more importantly – spent even more hours mastering the techniques to teach them in a one-on-one setting. I have than 1000 hours of previous tutoring experience in middle, high school, and college education. I am most experienced in Pre-Calculus, the Calculus sequence, and the introductory Physics sequences; I have done everything from simply review practice problems for AP exams to devise weeks worth of lessons to help a student prepare for the upcoming year. A one-on-one setting is most conducive for what I find to be the most effective way to teach – asking questions. I pick from a wide variety of practice and homework problems and ask students to walk me through solving them; stopping them to correct and fill in gaps in understanding. This tactic both pushes the student to master the material to a level where they should be able to teach it themselves and simultaneously exposes holes in the student's knowledge. However, this doesn't work for every student! I recognize that all students are different and I hope to work with you to find the most effective plan of action.|
|Additional:||Feel free to email, call, or text me with any questions or to set up an introductory session!|

|Courses taken:||Applied Math Master's from UCD & PhD Coursework|
|Experience:||I know how hard it is to learn from passive video lectures. My remote sessions are active and engaging--students solve problems on a digital whiteboard while I guide their process through a method of directed questioning, taking asides as necessary to explore tricky topics in depth. This approach is process-focused and confidence-building: students build the skills to attack math problems intelligently and independently, rather than simply getting the answers to their homework. I have over 5 years experience tutoring at the middle school through college level and 2 years experience TAing and teaching at UC Davis. I've earned stellar student evaluations, viewable here (https://github.com/mimmackk/mimmackk.github.io/tree/master/evals)|
|Additional:||First session is free -- test out whether we're a good fit! I also offer flat small-group rates for students in the same course, an affordable alternative for those who want the benefits of customized instruction but who don't require undivided attention for the full hour. This may be a good option for home-schooled K-12 students who are mathematically advanced. Email or text with questions or to set up a session!|
|Offered:||Calculus, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Introduction to Proofs, Analysis, Algebra, Topology, Numerical Analysis, and most other upper division mathematics.|
|Experience:||I am currently a UC Davis PhD student in Applied Mathematics, and have 10+ years of private tutoring experience (K-12 and college) and 4+ years of university-level tutoring center experience. Throughout all of my time as a private tutor, tutoring center tutor, and teaching assistant, I have learned that one-on-one tutoring is by far the most conducive to learning. In a group setting, it is easy to fall behind the crowd or convince oneself that they are comfortable with the material, but individualized learning is the key to ensuring that students leave no cracks of knowledge unfilled. Doing mathematics can be incredibly rewarding, and I want to ensure that every student is able to see the beauty of it and feel the satisfying feeling of completing their homework and acing their exams.|
|Additional:||I also tutor any level of K-12 mathematics and standardized tests such as the SAT and GRE. Feel free to e-mail or text me if you have any further questions!|
|Offered:||algebra, pre-calculus, calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, statistics, physics|

|Courses taken:||MAT 21ABCD, 22AB, 67, 127ABC, 150ABC, 145, 147, 115A|
|Experience:||I am a PhD student in the mathematics department, holding master's degrees math and physics and bachelor’s degrees in physics and music. Math is a frustrating experience when none of the material seems to fit together, so I want to help you find the forest through the trees. My philosophy is to approach your tutoring sessions by filling in background knowledge, identifying current misconceptions, and then creating a lesson style that resonates with how you learn. For many students, this means leading you on a path through which you can discover WHY the math you're doing makes sense, making you prepared to tackle problems like those we practice and even others that seem alien at first.|
|Additional:||I tutor any college math or physics, and I also have a lot of experience tutoring middle and high school students. Discounts available for new students and upper division classes. Email, call, or text!|
|Courses taken:||MAT 21ABCD, 22AB|
