Teaching Philosophy
There are many different objectives to consider when describing my teaching philosophy. I believe an educator should strive to:

  1. provide a professional, yet non-intimidating environment that fosters a positive academic experience;
  2. examine individual goals and determine the best way to achieve them; present material in a way that promotes not only an understanding of the topic but also the ability to evaluate and apply the knowledge towards different situations;
  3. assess the students' understanding of the material and develop strategies to improve student learning;
  4. establish a connection with the science community outside of the classroom through seminars and outreach activities.
