Welcome to my website!

This collection of webpages is my only corner on the web; I have no facebook, no twiter, no google plus or any other social network account. Here you can see my latest info, my bibliography (books & articles), some of the topics I wrote about and an application to fill if you're a student in need of a tutor.

I'm an advocate of freelance jobs; most part time and full time jobs are just a waste of time and a waste of ressources. I'm also an advocate of differential education; the old "one size fits all" curricula are proving more and more their failure.

About Me

I'm a mathematics teacher, physics teacher and a former physics editor. I graduated from the Lebanese university in 2009 with a BS in physics and I'm currently working as a high school mathematics teacher and as a mathematics and physics tutor. As a lot of people, I tried (when I was an undergraduate) to solve the Riemann hypothesis, the Collatz conjecture, the Four color theorem, the n-body problem, Fermat's Last Theorem, etc.

I'm interested in physics (theoretical and mathematical physics, especially self-energy and gravitation), mathematics (especially topology and analysis), computer science (web programming), neuroscience (understanding the most complex system in the universe) and education (I am an advocate of the so-called differential education which I call finite differential education to differenciate it from the continuous differential education in which the level and content of what a student should learn is a continuous function of his brain capabilities).

I'm a old Lebanese Christian. I speak arabic, english and french. My favorite singer is Majida el Roumy. I know my way around LaTeX, Matlab, C++, HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, AJAX and MySQL. In my free time, I'm trying to learn some VB.NET and to resume writing my book on elementary mathemtics which has been on the shelf for years.

Biography

I was born on a cold day of december 1987 in Lebanon. I attended elementary school at Collège de la Providence; I was a hard working student who wanted to get high grades in all the subjects even though I never prefered any subject over the others. Then I went to Mesrobian to complete my middle and high school.

In middle school, I was getting more and more into mathematics and physics (including chemistry) and neglecting all other subjects (except arabic grammar!). I remember solving systems of linear equations, "discovering" decimal logarithms & nth roots, building electric circuits (including a simple transmitter-receiver without an amplifier) & a water electrolyzer and reading about electromagnetic fields, subatomic particles, black holes and other stuffs. but still, I wasn't a couch potato; I practised running, basket ball, push ups and some kung fu!

In high school, my progression rate in mathematics & physics was too slow because of the curriculum so I brought some french baccalaureate and old books to study stuffs like Riemann integration, general equations of conic sections and the life of stars. Of course, I was failing all other subjects in school. I had to cope with this boring "one size fits all" curriculum so I was counting the days to finish school and enter a university to begin a serious formation. The thing I was lacking the most is religious education; I didn't feel this lack when I was in school but now, when I look backward, I see this as a huge gap and I'm not only talking about the Gospel but about Christianity in general, the old and new testaments, the history, the churches...

I entered the Lebanese university, faculty of science section II in fanar in 2005 and I graduated in 2009 with a BS in physics. I rarely attended lectures but I used to pass exams by studying my classmates' notes and reading some books, that's why I consider myself to be mainly self-taught.

Research

I'm trying to use nets and function spaces to solve differential, integrodifferential and functional equations.
