Teaching

It is my belief that all willing students are capable of learning. Therefore, if a student puts forth the necessary effort to learn a concept, I believe the instructor’s role is to support their acquisition of presented material. In my experience teaching computer science courses, I have found that a successful classroom includes the following elements: fostering logical thinking, encouraging group work, emphasizing hands-on learning, and allowing the flexibility to adapt the class based on student feedback.

Classes I have taught
