I like to help students become successful practitioners who think critically and are constantly challenging their knowledge. A successful professional never stops learning, and I believe that critical thinking drives the quest for knowledge.
My approach to teaching is to first present an overview of a topic; this is followed by an in-depth explanation, appropriate for the level of knowledge of the student. Then, I help students connect abstract concepts with actual application. Once students feel comfortable with their knowledge, I ask them questions about the validity of what was done forcing them to think about other important details that are likely to surface in practical situations. I constantly use examples I encountered in my consulting practice.
