My main teaching specialties include International Economics, Intermediate Macroeconomics, and Data Analysis. I have designed or modified a number of courses, creating written and video materials in the process. I have also taught intermediate microeconomics and money and banking, and also enjoy teaching economic principles. 
My data analysis materials are located here.
I am a firm believer that economics must be used to explain realworld events, and structure my courses with that goal in mind. I have extensive experience and interest in serving firstgeneration and other nontraditional students, as well as Englishlanguage learners and those for whom the opportunity to attend college will make a major impact in their lives.
