For most of my life, I've been a teacher of some sort. In middle and high school, I was an arithmetic and algebra tutor for underprivileged kids; in college, I volunteered in the math and writing centers; now, I'm teach ethics and logic classes in the philosophy department at UW-Madison. Teaching is the most important part of my life, and my role as an educator is what most defines my identity. I have no general guiding principle about teaching, other than that it isn't really useful to think in terms of such principles. Rather, I think that it's best to approach each student as having a distinct learning style and set of educational objectives, and thus, as representing a distinct set of challenges and rewards.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Over the course of my teaching career, I've learned that every student has a different background, learning style, and set of ambitions. In light of this, my guiding principle is to always meet students where they stand, without judgment.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

In a first session with a student, my primary objective is to develop our long-term plan, so that we can set goals and measure our progress.
