Teaching

   I have over 10 years of teaching experience.  I worked as an instructor for the Department of Mathematics at Universidad de Costa Rica for 3 years, I had 2 years experience as a teacher at Panamerican High School in Costa Rica, I was a Teaching Assistant for the Department of Mathematics at Louisiana State University for 4 years, and currently I am teaching for the Department of Mathematical Sciences at WPI.  

Current Teaching

  • MA 1024: Calculus IV - Term D 2013.  

Teaching Awards

    I have been honored to receive the following teaching awards:

                                

Teaching experience

    For the courses where I indicate that I was an Instructor, I was in charge of evaluating and grading student coursework and understanding, preparing and proctoring the tests, preparing syllabi, homework assignments, and enhancement materials, and holding office hours to help students with better understanding of the course materials and answer questions.  An example of a syllabus, a daily schedule and a test, as well as my Teaching and Graduate Assistant evaluations can be found here.
