__EXPERIENCE__

__ __

· I have taught Prep year courses for five years at KFUPM when I was a Graduate Student and a Lecturer (from 1991-1995).

·
I have taught math courses for
first-year students at University of Pittsburgh as a teaching assistant from
January 1^{st} 2001 to April 30 2002.

·
I have taught *Calculus to students at University of Pittsburgh as Teaching Assistant
where they were using Mathematica / Maple. *

·
I have taught *Business Calculus and Prep-Calculus for engineers at University of
Pittsburgh as Teaching Assistant.*

· I use different technical software packages. Among these: Fortran, C, C++, Latex, Tec Plot and Unix system.
