Previous Courses (UCLA)
During the years I spent at UCLA as a graduate student, I worked as a TA for a variety of advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in applied mathematics, and an intermediate programming course (C++). Below are links to the description of these courses and to webpages I created for some of them.

 Math 151A  Applied Numerical Methods
 Math 151B  Applied Numerical Methods
 Math 153  Numerical Methods for Partial Differential Equations
 Math 269A  Numerical Solutions of Ordinary Differential Equations
 PIC 10B  Intermediate Programming (C++)

Johns Hopkins University's Center for Takented Youth
During the summers of my graduate years at UCLA (200004), I also worked for Johns Hopkins University's Center for Talented Youth. There, I had the opportunity to teach a variety of very unique courses, those that one rarely gets to teach anywhere else: Individually Pace Mathematics, Flight Science, and Cryptography. In 2003, in addition to teaching mathematics, I worked as the Mathematics Subject Area Coordinator, and in 2004, I worked as Academic Dean for their program in Los Angeles.

Flight Instruction
Before I taught mathematics, from 1993 to 1997, I worked as I flight instructor at different airports in the Los Angeles area: Van Nuys, Brackett Fileld (La Verne), and Santa Monica Airports. During that time, I accumulated about 1800 hours of flight time and obtained several FAA certificates and ratings.
