Teaching Interests

Teaching Philosophy
“Learning is a joint effort between the student and the professor to bridge the gaps between the known and the unknown. Every student is unique; teaching should be tailored as much possible to the student. The end goal is not to teach the student everything they need to know, it is to teach the student the tools to learn what they need when they need it.”
