Teaching Interests

Teaching Philosophy
"I believe in active learning and 'practice makes perfect.' I believe that learning cannot occur in a passive environment. Each student must take the responsibility to actively pursue learning. Therefore, I do not simply 'feed' information, and I expect all students to be independent learners. Instead, I believe in serving as a guide and a mentor. I provide the students with appropriate support, structure and resources for self-directed learning."
