About Me

Learning doesn't have to be boring! I'm a life-long learner (currently working on my 3rd degree) and I teach because I lgenuinely love engaging students.

Teaching Methodology

My main approach to teaching involves connecting learning to real-world, big-picture questions which engage students and keep them thinking beyond the duration of my classes. I am also skilled at breaking down complex topics and processes into clear steps, which students can grasp and build on to develop a complete, high-level understanding. When teaching and assigning tasks, I am responsive to student abilities and needs, as I believe there is no one approach which suits every student.
