Teaching Interests

I have been teaching Calculus course sequence (including Precalculus). In my teaching, I have always tried to do my best to have my students learn the material of the course, to provide them with a strong foundation for any future courses, and to, hopefully, convey to them my love of mathematics and the fact that this subject exists not by itself, in a vacuum, but rather helps explain the world by translating the problems into mathematics and interpreting the solutions back to the real world problems’ solutions.

I also try to make students interested in the subject, answer their questions, communicate with them on a regular and consistent basis, and for those who are willing to put in extra time, to challenge them beyond the course curriculum by offering some problems of greater difficulty.
