Teaching Philosophy

The five pillars of my teaching philosophy are to

1.      Engage students in discussion and problem solving

2.      Explain complicated subjects in more intuitive and understandable terms

3.       Relate theories and concepts to actual industry practices and business applications

4.      Respect students and motivate them to learn

5.      Conduct teaching as partnership between the professor and the students
