Teaching Interests and Approach:
I believe in the importance of using different teaching approaches and tools for different levels of classes. I prefer to construct the concept for my students rather than teaching directly, as in traditional lecture
methods. I encourage students through group discussions, discussion board activities, and in-class problem-solving activities that improve student-student interactions. I am an individual who adjusts my teaching methods in order to get improved student output across her courses. I trained for online teaching and had experienced on online teaching.
Interested courses: AP Physics 1, College Physics (Algebra based), University Physics (Calculus based), Fundamentals of Physics
