Originally from Rhône-Alpes, I studied Mathematics and Computer Science at the Universities of Grenoble, Lyon and Chicago. I hold a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics and a Ph.D. in Computer Languageand Programming Language.I started my career by working for Apple in Chicago before starting my own computer company (LLC) in New York City.I decided then to Lecture and earned the Aggregation (High School and University credential which is the highest level you can have to Lecture in France) in mathematics. I taught 5 years in the south of France before joining the faculty at the University of California Los Angeles(UCLA) then in San Diego (UCSD) then finally in New York at the prestigious Columbia University, where I taught the French and the US Mathematics programs. In parallel I worked for different IT companies as Manager, Website Designer, PHP Programmer and Software Developer.I’m passionate about sports too. I was a member of the national Olympic French Judo team before practicing bodybuilding for 22 years. I won the French Nationals
the European Championship, the World series and Mr. Universe in 1996 in overall categories. Currently I practice golf during my leisure time.
I believe that my education is the key to success for young students. As an instructor, I hope to motivate students in ascertaining their inner strengths and abilities and discovering what truly inspires them. I aim to provide a stimulating learning environment that encourages students to trust their own opinions, while fostering confidence in order for students to realize their full potential.
Through my teaching experience thus far, I have found the method of facilitating rather than dictating to be a highly beneficial style of teaching. I have learned that if students construct their own learning experience they will not only retain information longer, but they will also become more confident in their abilities. Being devoted to this assertion confirms that I have made the right career choice for myself. I love working with students and will continue to strive to be a positive influence in their lives.
