" Started the course today. I like it. So far it's been review of calculus and it's been a good, simple review. Jason explains things well. I like the video lectures. I think I can finish this course way faster than studying a textbook on my own because of the video lectures seem to make learning faster. Thanks " ---- Virat Karam

Hi! My name is Jason Broadway. I have my M.S. in mathematics from Middle Tennessee State University and I have taught calculus before in the technical college setting. I have also tutored individuals one-on-one in calculus. Students have thanked me for opening doors for them that were once shut. When I taught and tutored, I showed patience toward my students. They also appreciated the fact that I did not skip steps whenever I taught a particular concept.
