I strive to understand the stumbling blocks of my students to identify what it is that is causing difficulty and provide a detailed explanation of the concepts with examples to reinforce it. I keep an engaging atmosphere in class where I encourage students to let me know when they are struggling with something.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I try to keep an engaging atmosphere in class and always encourage my students to ask questions if they don't understand something. I give step by step explanations without omitting details and often believe it is worth spending more time on one thing to have the students solidly grasp it, rather than jumping to the next topic without fully understanding the current one.
