My background spans Mathematics to Philosophy to Law (B.A., M.S., J.D.), but I talk in a straightforward, down-to-earth manner. I believe most material can be communicated in everyday language and illustrated with real-life examples. This is especially true in math.
My teaching philosophy emphasizes the adage "teach a man to fish." One of the goals of each lesson is to show you how much you already know and how to build from there to mastery of the subject. I have taught English as a foreign language both in class and in the home, and tutored mathematics to high school students in Spanish.

Between January 2000 and December 2001, I taught a course called Contemporary Applications of Modern Mathematics for four semesters at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The course covered Graph Theory, Voting Methods, Apportionment, The Traveling Salesman Problem, and Descriptive Statistics.
I planned, taught, and graded this class for two sections each semester, with around 25 students in each class.

It is a subject that is, in my opinion, difficult to explain, and, since it is not an exact science, there are few out there who are consistently able to provide answers on a wide range of material. Fortunately, Ahmed had both mastery of the subject and was able to explain it in an easy to understand manner. I credit Ahmed wi ...
