About: My Teaching

You thought I’d start out with a list of my courses? Not gonna happen. The courses I teach are simply the means to an end. To several ends.

I love to teach because:

  • Teachers have changed my life!
    • So I want to return the favor.
  • Teaching keeps me learning
    • And not just from preparing syllabi
    • But by interacting with smart students
  • Teaching keeps me young
    • My students might beg to differ!

My goal in teaching is:

  • To shake up people’s world-views
    • Same goal I have in blogging, writing books, …
  • To take complex ideas and reveal their underlying simplicity
    • Like I also did in this video with my 12 year old son
