My role is to guide students to mastery with a socratic method-like teaching style. I understand that learning is hard so a large part of my role is to encourage my students to continue and push them to go a little bit further. Ultimately, my goal is to mentor students to be independent yet collaborative learners.
I have a Doctorate in Math from the University of California, Irvine. For the twelve years I was a college student I have studied Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science and have conducted research in several areas of math.
I have taught as instructor for college Algebra, Pre-Calculus, and Introduction to Abstract Math. I have taught as a teaching assistant eleven times, including courses in Calculus, Number Theory, Cryptography, and Linear Algebra. Additionally, I have worked as a tutor for a number of after school programs. There I have taught Algebra, Geometry, AP Physics, and Calculus.
When I am not working I am often spending time with my wife and two daughters. My wife and I like experiencing new food and eat out frequently.
