Beyond the Lecture
For me, understanding is about making a connection with the subject. I feel it is my job to discover that connection between you and the techniques you need to complete your work.
I have found that one of the most important services I can provide as a teacher and tutor is to provide a positive environment to explore the subject matter in a way that is relaxed, fun, and ultimately stimulates a better appreciation of mathematics and science.

GAYLEN SMITH- MATH AND PHYSICS TUTOR
For many years now, I have been a sailor. In fact, my home is an Endeavour 37 sloop. And, just like a sailboat, my life has not always traveled in a straight line.
I restarted my academic journey later in life at a community college after getting laid off my retail job and ended up graduating from a university with a B.S. in Engineering Physics, a concentration in Mechanical Engineering and a minor in Mathematics. I was immediately asked to teach Calculus back at my old community college and taught there as an adjunct for years. I was also the head tutor at their academic support center. I began tutoring and teaching online while working there and saw an opportunity to reach more people through online teaching platforms. I feel that technology is at the point where online tutoring can be as effective, perhaps more, than traditional methods.
