Jimmy Tamayo

I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics and a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science from Cal Poly Pomona in 1997.  I earned a Master’s Degree in Mathematics from UC Riverside in 1998.

I have been a professor at Mt. San Antonio College since 2001.  I started as an adjunct professor and was hired as a full-time professor in 2002.  I have always enjoyed teaching mathematics.  My first experience with teaching math was while I was a student at Cal Poly Pomona.  I was a tutor for the Educational Opportunity Program from 1993-1997.   I was a Teaching Assistant and Lecturer at UC Riverside from 1998-2002.  From the first student I tutored to the room full of students in my classes, I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching a subject that I find fascinating.  Over the years, I have learned that it is not only important to show how to do math, but that it is very important to show why math works the way it does.

I have been Chair of the Mathematics and Computer Science Department since June 2016.
