My teaching experience has involved teaching a wide variety of students, and I feel this has resulted in a flexible approach that allows me to reach people at different skill levels and learning abilities. At the same time, I recognize the need to be firm and establish clear policies about classroom conduct in order to maintain a focused learning environment. I encourage students to treat class as they would a job, in that achieving a good grade depends in part upon the strength of their work ethic. I design my classes so that the time and effort put into studying and engaging the materials is reflective in the grade received. My courses involve multi-modal and holistic instruction with clear grading standards designed to promote critical thinking.
