Los Angeles in the '90s was a remarkably interesting place and time to grow up. Having seen the debilitating effects on friends and family of the lack of quality educational materials, I am now passionate about teaching and sharing knowledge. I try to do this with friends and family as often as possible, but for the most part I probably just annoy them.
My most fascinating teaching experience was as a volunteer at the San Quentin State Prison, where I tutored inmates in basic algebra. There was a remarkable inmate who worked with me shortly on a "special topics" class of multivariable calculus and differential equations. You should check out this amazing program, known as the Prison University Project.
Another interesting teaching experience was at the American University of Armenia in Gyumri, Armenia, where I taught young business entrepreneurs basic computer skills. You can find out more about my various teaching positions in my CV.
