Beyond the Lecture
Understanding is about making a connection with the subject, and it's 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 offer 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.
I can help you reach your professional and academic goals.
GAYLEN SMITH- MATH AND PHYSICS TUTOR
I'm 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.
My academic journey into math and science started later in life at a community college, and I ended up graduating from a university with a B.S. in Engineering Physics, a concentration in Mechanical Engineering and a minor in Mathematics. I returned to my community college to teach Calculus and was also the head tutor at their academic support center. While working there, I saw an opportunity to reach more people through online teaching platforms and started working as an independent, online tutor.
Technology is at the point where online tutoring can be as effective--perhaps even more, than traditional methods.
