Do you remember the last time you applied mathematics, whether to split a tab or to calculate the restaurant's tip at the end of a meal? You may not consciously remember using it, and yet this skill is vital to this application. What I mean is, this tiny skill becomes a part of our everyday life without realize its importance until much later in life. Now that you're embarking on the calculus series, you're wondering if calculus is applicable beyond freshmen or sophomore year. We'd be force to think that passing the class is all we strive for in our first or second year of college.

The fact that you're searching for a potential instructor to facilitate your mastery in calculus already disproves that last point. While self-learning from math books and school resource centers can carry you so far, you've taken an important step to attain mastery of calculus with a private tutor. It is not just any tutor: you're looking for someone who quickly evaluates the problematic concepts and provides you a solution. A tutor like myself can shape and fortify your foundation in mathematics even after our first lesson, one that will carry you beyond your last semester in calculus.

You may even seeking perfection, one who takes pleasure in the simple “ah-ha!” moments from discovering the intricacies of parametrics for a function; or to easily prove the definition of a limit, the definition of an integral, or the definition of a derivative.

And you know what, my students who've taken business calculus, AP calculus, and calculus from Berkeley in the San Francisco bay area found me to be very helpful! Now that I am here in Southern California, I look forward to become a valuable resource for potential students. Unfortunately, my time is limited to the weekday evenings and the weekends. So feel free to stop by and give it a chance and find out if my instruction is to your liking. If you're not satisfied, then the first hour will be on me.

Gordon’s subjects



I have worked with an instructor at city college grading papers. My teaching methods with calculus will be to focus on manipulating formulas and to become comfortable using trigonometry and algebra to assist in some difficult problems. I will focus on helping the student understand how to apply those concepts graphically and verbally.

Very helpful, patient, and thoughtful! Four stars out of four! Gordon was a very good tutor! Always on time, always polite and respectful, and always prepared to teach/mentor/help. He would work through any problem AP Calculus BC presented, explain the big picture, examine the small picture, and help with understanding the concept and application! I recommend him for any level, but he was helpful with the most complex problems and issu ...
