I am a Lecturer of Mathematics. I am specialized in Algebraic Geometry. Algebraic Geometry occupies a central place in modern mathematics and has multiple conceptual connections with such diverse fields as complex analysis, topology, and number theory. I serve as a committee of NMC Math Competition for secondary education. NMC is National Math Competition which is one of Math Olympiads. I have 20 years of College level Mathematics teaching experience from Calculus to advanced Math Courses such as Linear Algebra, Abstract Algebra, Real and Complex Analysis, Geometry. I professionally teach all the courses of Algebra, Analysis, Geometry, and Topology.

I have four kids and my wife is also a mathematician. Her speciality is Fractal Geometry in analysis. I go to church every Sunday with my family.

I am a professional Latex user.
