Teaching Philosophy

I believe the purpose of teaching is to promote the development of curiosity, self-reliance, and professional behavior. Individual students have varying levels of experience, expectations, interest, capability, and motivation. I adapt my teaching methods to these variations by presenting students with multiple examples and perspectives related to the course content. I will often prompt students to consider alternate solutions and call on them to share their personal experiences. In this way, I help students develop to their full individual potential.

I believe it is vital to ensure student awareness of the learning resources available to them, including making them aware of strategies for developing and improving their learning capacity. I accept the impossibility of teaching everything. Thus, I seek to foster ability and appreciation for self-directed learning. I encourage students to explore beyond the knowledge presented in class and provide resources to that end. I prompt students to develop effective study strategies, and through experimentation and exploration, cultivate their curiosity and appreciation of problem-solving.

Every student is unique and deserves instruction tailored to their level of experience, expectations, interest, capability, and personal motivations. It is a practical impossibility to teach all there is to know, nor would this be an efficient approach to teaching. I believe in transforming students into life-long learners and helping them discover their capacity to teach themselves through practical application, iterative improvement, and guidance in developing independent study habits.
