Teaching Philosophy

My approach to teaching is focused on providing a space that is designed to build confidence and connections with the groups or individuals I am working with. By acknowledging and understanding the different experiences faced by our learners, I strive to approach each session with patience, enthusiasm, and a sense of collaboration. I believe that learning is a lifelong process, and my goal is to create an environment that is comfortable and allows the learner to explore their own ideas and find a research process that is suited towards their learning style.
