I am a full-time Mathematics Instructor at De Anza College. Born in a family of dedicated teachers, my career journey took off in India in 1977 as an assistant professor of Mathematics and has brought me around the world to Singapore and USA. Having worked for more than twenty years in higher education, I continued teaching at Marquette University, Milwaukee, WI while I completed my Masters in Computer Science. This new field of education provided me a wonderful career opportunity in the world of Information Technology, when I worked for a few years as a Director of Technology for Pelican Technology Partners.

My passion for teaching soon brought me back to teach part-time at Devry University. Not long after I took up a full-time position at Century College for the Department of Mathematics in Fall of 2007. In the short period at Century, I am a proud recipient of the "Students' Voice Award" successively for three years.

I wish my journey as a teacher continues yielding fruitful results to the students and help students to get rid of their fear for mathematics. My goal is to develop within my students a real interest in learning mathematics and to make learning 'fun' not a 'burden'.
