My teaching philosophy based on three main components: (1) making the material relevant to the students' everyday lives,  (2) promoting an engaging learning environment that accounts for a variety of learning styles, and (3) fostering peer support and mentoring in the classroom. My top priority in all my classes is to ensure that students fully understand and are able to apply concepts discussed in class to their own experiences. 

I know that I did a good job in the class when I overhear random students' discussions in which they are using concepts that they have learned throughout the course.

Here is a list of all the courses that I have previously taught and the syllabi:
