I believe that teaching is an art and it is beyond just knowing the subject matter. A good teacher is the one who has a passion for teaching and makes all efforts to first, make the student interested in the subject, second, increases his/her level of confidence, then teach them the methodical way of learning the subject using active interaction as opposed to just presenting the materials.
I have extensive experience in teaching various subject matters in the filed of mathematics and computer science. My teaching/tutoring started from the time I was going to high school. I spent about 20 hours a week tutoring my classmates and schoolmates in math and science. When I was going college, I was a part time instructor teaching math, physics, and chemistry at high schools. I was a teaching assistant when I was doing my PhD at UCLA, and also taught courses in computer science and math at California State University, Northridge.
I have worked as a computer technical trainer for 7 years, developing and teaching courses on C programming and UNIX operating System for Interactive Systems Corporation. The rest of the time that I worked as an IT consultant, I have always helped children of friend and relatives in math, science, probability/statistics, SAT, and GRE preparation and that has helped me keep a fresh memory on the subject matters. I'm a very patient teacher and can work with students at all levels.
