Teaching Philosophy & Approach

My teaching philosophy revolves around creating a nurturing and inclusive environment where children and teenagers feel empowered to explore their ideas freely. I place a strong emphasis on critical thinking, encouraging students to embrace mistakes as valuable learning opportunities and to approach challenges with curiosity and creativity.

In my sessions with student, every individual is valued, respected, and given a voice, fostering an atmosphere conducive to deep learning and mutual growth. I believe that learning is a collaborative journey, where both teacher and student embark on an exploration of knowledge, constantly challenging themselves to adapt and evolve.

I place a strong emphasis on critical thinking, encouraging students to embrace mistakes as valuable learning opportunities and to approach challenges with curiosity and creativity.
