...Berkeley majoring in EECS(Electrical Engineering and Computer Science). I have been teaching mathematics, physics and languages for 8 years. I try to guide my students to the most efficient way rather than giving them rigorous amount of work, since I have witnessed many cases of students losing interest when given too much of work. I love talking about the history and philosophy of science and mathematics when trying to initiate the interest in certain topic.

...as well as Physics and Chemistry. Math and science have always been my favorite subjects to study and teach, because they are built on evidence and proof. My teaching philosophy is based on this- that if you know how something works, rather than just that it works, you will remember it better and be much more confident applying it. Additionally, I understand from experience that individual students learn in different ways, and that adapting my...

My teaching philosophy is to facilitate learning by emphasizing the critical concepts and to demand more critical thinking from my students to really get a grasp of the concepts. My emphasis is on helping students to learn instead of just pushing my knowledge to them.... I have always been passionate about learning new things and expanding my experiences in life. I started teaching a couple of years ago because I wanted to contribute my knowledge to the community. I have been working for more than 5 years since I graduated, and I thought that it was time to give back. In the spirit of learning new things, I tackled the task of putting together the course with the lectures and exams. The preparation of the class allowed me to reflect on what my goals were for the class, besides teaching the required material. What did I want my students to get out the class? The first step to answer that, was to understand who my audience was and why they were taking the class. This first part was very important, allowing me to tailor the different learning objectives to something that the students could relate to, in their current or future jobs. Since then, I always take the time to get to know my students and be open and approachable, no matter how big my class is. In teaching, my overarching goal is to give the students the fundamental concepts from which most of chemistry and biology can be understood. Furthermore, I think that it is also essential for my students to learn valuable life skills. I understand that not all of my students are taking the class to become chemists or scientists, but I want to give them the tools to be successful, not only in my class but also in life. I believe that showing your enthusiasm and passion about the subject that you teach can be contagious and pique the curiosity of the more recalcitrant students. I always try to make my class hands-on whenever possible, and to always have examples that they can relate to in their day to day lives. Open interaction in my classroom is always important and controlled. Furthermore, I always challenge my students' answers to push them to understand a concept fully. I always like to think like a 3-year-old who is discovering new things and asks “why,” trying to get a grasp of what is surrounding her. I use this same “technique” to push my students and to really see if they understood the key concepts. My teaching philosophy is to facilitate learning by emphasizing the critical concepts, and to demand more critical thinking from my students to really get a grasp of the concepts. My emphasis is on helping students to learn instead of just pushing my knowledge to them.
