Dear Prof. Renato Cintra,

by chance I went to your website and saw a request to send

information about the destiny of their students. I do not know if

you remember me, but I studied probability 3 in

20XX.X as elective. At the time, he was studying economics at UFPE.

After 1EE prof. ******** took on the discipline.

I ended up deciding to change my area and decided to try the master's

in statistics. I passed UFPE and *****, and decided

attend the latter. The teachers ******** and *********

signed my letter of recommendation,

because I was also their student *. Classes started at

last Monday here, and so far I'm enjoying it

The area of ​​research that I was asked was

time series.


I take this opportunity to thank you for the incentives

that he gave me at that time and for the excellent course that

ministered.

Cordially,


From a student who had a focus achieved performance:

do it alongside those who honor their thesis.

Hello Prof. Renato,


(...) I am sending this email because the experience that

had when taking this course [Linear Programming] and

developing the "Simplex" algorithm was one of the most striking

you mentioned it a few times).

Professor,


I tried to find you to speak personally about

this memory, but I didn't find it.


A few years ago, my son learned to solve the magic cube

and at the time I commented to him that he had a teacher who

timed the time spent for this achievement. Last year

during the academic semester there was the science fair of my

son and one of the gifts was the mini-cube which he gave me to

that I give to "my teacher who likes".


I didn't want to deliver it at the time, because it was still his / her student *.


Thank you so much for everything.
