Description

**Pssst.. Hey, You!**

- Are you a business student frustrated by business calculus, finding it too hard, fast-paced and/or abstract?
- Is learning business calculus as much (or even less) fun than watching paint dry?
- Does your professor have you finding derivatives, when you can't even remember how to divide fractions?
- Is business calculus taking over your life?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, keep on reading.

*Intro*

**Hi, my name is Luis, and I have been tutoring business calculus for the past 8 years. I understand 100% how frustrating, difficult and painful this class is to a lot of business students.**

Students’ hatred for business calculus is well-documented. We tutors of course agree it is difficult. But its difficulty is largely because the explanations provided by typical textbooks/professors are completely horrible. They are unclear, ambiguous and too long.

**This Course**

For these reasons, I created the essential business calculus course, specifically designed for business students. This course avoids the complexity and boringness of your college textbook/professor to explain concepts and problems clearly. Instead, in this course, you will find the following:

- Clear and to-the-point explanations of all the important concepts in business calculus
- Practice problems for every concept explained, which are done step-by-step with a voiceover so you know exactly what's going on
- Practice exercises for you to solve after learning a new concepts
- Dozens of mental tricks (mnemonics) I have developed over the years to easily remember definitions and complex rules
- A summary of the most important concepts for each section for you to easily review

Take my course, and business calculus will finally start making sense for you. Trust me, there will be a lot of "oohs" and "ahhs" in this course :-)

*Who This Course is For*

If you are a business student and you are struggling through business calculus, this course was made for you!

**Mnemonics**

I have developed several "mnemonics" (mental tricks used to remember things easily), which will make even the hardest concepts in the class fun and easy to remember. For example you might be wondering...

- What does a famous Canadian catchphrase have to do with logarithms?

- How in the world are the chain rule and an "ugly Xbox" related?

- Can thinking about a driver's license help you solve a continuity problem?

These and many more associations will have you remembering calculus concepts in a breeze. They are especially useful, as all of us sometimes happen to blank out when we have a question in front of us.

*What the Course Covers*

The course covers the main topics given in a typical business calculus class. You are pretty much guaranteed to see most, if not all of the topics below as you go through your semester.

*Functions and Graphing**Limits and Continuity**Derivatives**Differentiation Rules**Applications of Derivatives**Exponential & Logarithmic Functions**Integrals*

Of course, I am always adding new tutorials to this course. If you don't see your topic listed here, send me a private message and I will help in any way I can.

*My Promise*

As I explain in the course itself, **business calculus is not easy**. Especially for business students, who wonder why they have to take this class all the time. My course removes the frustration out of business calculus and makes things clear.

At the same time, however, I cannot make you pay attention in class, nor can I make you sit down and do your homework. **Ultimately, whether you pass the class or not is completely up to you. **But I am here to help you do just that!

What my course does is present business calculus concepts in a structured manner and in a way that is easy to understand. By going over the course, and complementing that with going to class and doing your homework, I can assure you you will crush this class.

**Shall We?**

Are you ready to conquer business calculus?

As the wise Shia LaBeouf said once, "JUST DO IT!"

About the Instructor

Business Calculus Tutor with 8+ Years of Experience

Hey there!

My name is Luis, and I have been a business calculus tutor for the past 8 years, having helped hundreds of students pass this class.

I love calculus (I know... weird, right?), and also I love to be able to help others learn the subject.

From "why do I have to take this class?" to "I'm switching majors", I have heard it all when it comes to business calculus. If you are struggling right now with this class, I got you!

I am here to help you pass calculus. With my years of experience, I have developed dozens of shortcuts to help business students like you understand and remember concepts much more easily. Moreover, I like to explain things simply and clearly (unlike your textbook and professor... yuck!).

Anyways, I hope you enjoy my business calculus course if you decide to take it. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me!

I am looking forward to working together with you.

Sincerely,

Luis
