Teaching Philosophy & Approach:
I have always learned best in tight-knit environments, when the teacher is passionate about embarking on a collaborative journey to discover new things with their students. That same approach is top-of-mind for me as a teacher, that I can learn as much from the students as they can learn from me, so long as I believe in them and give them a chance to shine. It is my goal to help each individual unlock some of their potential, and light the spark that triggers a genuine love for life-long learning.
