I have been teaching Finite Mathematics and College Algebra to Freshmen and Sophomores when I was a graduate teaching assistant at the University of Central Florida. I also taught Statistics and Probability at Valencia Community College for a two semesters. I have always had a passion to transmitting knowledge. It is a fulfilling experience and make me plain and purposeful as I help young students become productive citizens of society.
It is always gratifying to see a struggling student do well thanks to the teaching efforts an instructor provides. I love to break difficult problems into small, manageable, and easily understandable concepts that a student can follow to become successful at tackling quantitative exercises. I have always wanted to contribute to the well-being of young individuals and what a better way to do it than to spread knowledge to those people.
