TEACHING EXPERIENCE

School of Mathematics, Georgia Institute of Technology
Postdoctoral Fellow ( Fall 1999 - present )
Taught Calculus, Multivariate Calculus and Introduction to Linear Algebra course with full autonomy in organizing lectures,
recitation sessions  (with help of teaching assistants), creating exams, grading.
Served as a teaching mentor for teaching assistants.
Served as member of  Ph. D. Oral Examination committee.

University of Connecticut (1993-1999)
Teaching Assistant (Fall 1993 - 1999)
Instructor for the undergraduate courses ranging from Intermediate Algebra to Calculus. Responsible for lecturing, creating
and grading exams,  quizzes and projects.  Teaching evaluations well above university and department averages.
TRIO Program Math Coordinator (Summer 1999) and Instructor (Summers 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998)
TRIO is federally and state funded initiative which requires a strong commitment from the instructor to help students
overcome class, social, and cultural barriers.
Organized and coordinated mathematical part of TRIO program.
Includes coordinating work of six teachers and four tutors and monitored performance and progress over 90 students in the program.
As instructor I taught Intermediate algebra as a part of TRIO program.
Instructor for the Winter Intersessions at UCONN (1997, 1999))
Full autonomy to create a two-week (5 hours a day) Pre-Calculus course (1997) and Applied Mathematics for Business course in (1999).

Technology in teaching
Taught several technology Enhanced Courses. Use of a graphic calculator TI-8x required. Software packages (Mathematica ,Matlab, Maple)
and Internet (e-mail , WWW pages) strongly recommended.

University Computer Center, Zagreb, Croatia
Software trainer and Consultant, (1990-1993)
