Teaching Experience

I believe that students are guided by the faculty in their pursuit of knowledge. A knowledgeable and caring faculty can make a positive inference in the students' lives. Students may be different in their efforts of engaging in learning: Some of them are self-motivated, others need periodical encouragement, and still others require a constant push. However, a responsible faculty should make sure that all students who are eager to learn are provided with the means to learn. Successful teaching is very important to me. I think of teaching as helping students and sharing with them what I have already learned.

Statistical Consulting Sevice

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at FAU provides a Statistical Consulting Service (SCS). The SCS does not have the resources to provide unlimited free consulting. However, there is no charge for the initial contact and discussions. If extensive consultation is required, the service should be supported by the clients. The SCS can be arranged by calling (561) 297-2486 to make an appointment.
