Teaching Philosophy

I always seek to minimize the effort students have to exert, while maximizing the amount of skills they acquire.

Research Interests

None. Hired in 1979, when putting teaching far above research was the selling point for the College of the Pacific, I gave up research and devoted all of my efforts to teaching.
