Why I Teach

My satisfaction as a teacher comes from facilitating a great classroom discussion and interacting with students. No matter what course I teach, I strive for quality rather than quantity. As a result, I expect my students to demonstrate a genuine understanding of the essence of every concept or methodology we cover. That motivates me to present the most difficult of concepts in an interesting and understandable way.

Teaching provides me the opportunity to positively influence young adults by sharing my knowledge and experience. And at the same time, it challenges me to improve myself as a teacher and person.
