Center Director/OwnerGayle Davison, Owner

Gayle graduated from Jacksonville State University, Jacksonville, AL, with a Master's degree in Math Education where she also satisfied the requirements necessary to teach college level mathematics.  In addition, she received the degree, "Administration in Education"  from Samford University, Birmingham, AL. Gayle taught middle school, high school and college mathematics for 31 years. She was recognized as a “Highly Qualified Math Teacher” in Shelby County where she taught for her last 11 years. In the summer of 2012 Gayle retired from the Shelby County school system.  Following a wonderful year of retirement, she heard a radio ad for Mathnasium, and was immediately intrigued. Her first reaction was “this ad was written for me!” Gayle not only loves helping students with math, but she also understands the frustration many parents feel when they realize their children are struggling with math. Having taught in public schools as well as doing private tutoring, she knows how well students respond when they understand math. They discover a newly found confidence that drives an even greater interest in math, and before long, they actually look forward to math class! “This business is a 'no brainer' for me. Everybody wins with Mathnasium; parents, students, teachers, schools, and me! What a joy to bring such a winning organization to our community!”

I have always enjoyed math and love when I get the opportunity to help kids of all ages enjoy it as well.
