As a university lecturer, I've taught math extensively both at NYU and at other universities. I've taught and encouraged students who've thanked me for transforming their lives. I founded and now manage Active Working Partners LLC to . Passionate about education, I founded and manage Peers.
While teaching mathematics, I always tried to infuse my students with enthusiasm and with a love of discovery and learning. I've helped students who were at first challenged mathematically to work hard and work towards doing well. Many students have told me about the remarkable effect I had on their educational trajectory, and that having mastered the material in my class made them realize that they could go after their dreams. I also mentored high school students. I realized that I would like to extend this type of impact and transformation to a broader plane, and this is when I thought of Peers. I worked on the idea and assembled a Dream Team, a group of highly talented individuals with a similar passion for education. I am proud in the sense that I was able to communicate effectively my passion, and that it inspired them to want to work on this as well, despite that each of them is engaged in other things. Each made it his priority to help translate the idea into actuality.
I'm looking for a company to invest - a company that shares my ideals and is interested in seeing my company grow. We intend to monetize by selling subscriptions to companies to post internships and jobs, and companies would be able to search for their precise candidates using our search algorithm.

Rebecca's mathematics experience is broad and rigorous, providing a solid foundation for work in many areas. This makes it easy to work with her, since she is able to contribute to the project at any stage. Additionally, I have been working with Rebecca on a project with a tight deadline and I am impressed by her ability to push through difficult situations.
Designing programming languages for education. PhD student in CS at Yale.
I met Rebecca when I was chairperson of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at York College, part of the City University of New York, and she was a new adjunct faculty member. She impressed me then for her sense of purpose and her creative approach in the classroom. She consistently produced students who were far more successful than the average. Rebecca got interested in creating apps because it was a way to reach a much wider audience than just one or two classes at a time. She got a team together, consisting of people who could contribute ideas as well as some money. After a lot of brainstorming, they decided on a goal of helping students to form working groups for projects and study. Of course there were conflicts, both in ideas and in process. Rebecca was able to manage each situation with minimal disruption. Eventually there was a prototype and a need for more money, and so she is applying to you. Rebecca is smart, ethical, creative, and persistent. She has led the project with her eye on the result, and has made good progress. Her team is now enhanced with a programmer, and they are ready to go ahead. I am looking forward to a successful result.
