I am passionate about teaching because I enjoy helping learners to grow as individuals, that is - to experience success and build confidence. I also enjoy the challenge of how to best facilitate and motivate learning in diverse groups.

My primary teaching objective is for learners to be able to understand and apply the fundamental content and concepts of the course. However, integrated with this objective is the goal of fostering the development of transferable lifelong learning skills, problem solving skills, critical thinking skills as well as interpersonal and communication skills, through opportunities provided both inside and outside the classroom.
