I believe teaching is a two-way process, and cannot be differentiated from learning; therefore in this process, there will be a mutual exchange of knowledge, experiences, and ideas between students and instructors. I see myself as a facilitator rather than a teacher. I have a strong passion for being in a classroom and I care about my students deeply. I aim to instill creativity and self-reliance in my students along with perseverance and a positive attitude, as I believe these are the keys to success. Although my teaching experience is diverse based on the courses I teach, what remains the same is my philosophy of teaching, which includes a three-way process: setting clear expectations, using suitable examples in the class, and facilitating professional development.
These are the classes I have taught so far as an instructor of record.
