Teaching Philosophy

It is my goal to inspire students to think critically to solve real-life problems by actively engaging them in applied learning opportunities. I employ a variety of teaching methods to meet the needs of my students. The most fulfilling aspect of my work is the time spent one-on-one helping students, whether face-to-face or online.
