Teaching

I am an experienced and dedicated teacher who has taught a wide range of classes in a variety of formats. This includes
  • Service Courses like Business Calculus, and Mathematics for Mechanical Engineers
  • General Education courses like Introduction to Mathematical Modelling, A Mathematical World, and Ideas in Geometry
  • Upper level courses like Real Analysis, Differential Equations, Probability, and Introduction to Proof Writing.

This includes courses involving active learning, and the use of computers. I use the skills honed in these classes to enrich the other classes I teach.

I enjoyed teaching many lecture-based courses, which combine clear explanations with opportunities for the students to interact with the ideas of the course.

Students looking for information about this semester's courses should log into Moodle.

While at Bucknell University, I have taught
  • Calculus I (Math 201),
  • Calculus II (Math 202),
  • Topics in Calculus (Math 192), a business calculus course,
  • Introduction to Mathematical Modelling (Math 112), a course introducing non-math majors to the beauty and power of mathematics and how it can describe the world around us,
  • Probability (Math 303), and
  • Linear Algebra (Math 245) (in Spring 2018).
While at SUNY Geneseo, I taught
  • Introduction to Proof-writing,
  • Real Analysis,
  • Differential Equations,
  • Calculus I, and
  • Calculus II.

In Fall 2014, I taught Math 2085 (Linear Algebra) at Louisiana State University. My students can find all the course-related fun through Moodle and a subset of that fun by clicking on Math 2085 - Linear Algebra - Fall 2014.

In 2010, I was awarded the UIUC Department of Mathematics Brahana TA Instructional Award  in recognition of my "exemplary teaching", an award given to 2 TA's each year. I was also named to UIUC's List of Teachers Ranked as Excellent on 8 occasions. I also helped revise the coursenotes for an "Ideas in Geometry" class.

While a graduate student at the University of Illinois, I had the pleasure of teaching several courses in the Merit program, an active learning based approach, which targets students from groups underrepresented in STEM fields.
