## Teaching

In Spring 2015, I am teaching two classes at Queens College:

- Honors Calculus IV (Math 208). This course is scheduled to meet TuTh 2:15pm - 4:05pm in 434 Kiely Hall.
- Linear Algebra (Math 231). This course is scheduled to meet MW 12:10pm - 2:00pm in 434 Kiely Hall

In Fall 2014, I taught:

- Honors Calculus III (Math 207) at Queens College.
- Topology (Math 70700) at CUNY Graduate Center.
