Teaching Philosophy

The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet — Aristotle —

Teaching Goals: To teach is to learn. My goal as an educator is to help students to improve themselves as thinkers and problem solvers. My primary role as an instructor is to put physical intuitions in ways that help students to attain physical insights and to find relevant ways to solve problems. These techniques will give students a direct role in their own education that keeps them interested in the subject therefore, providing the willingness to learn. In teaching, I hope to impart upon students not just the materials that the class covers, but also more general skills and interests that cultivate the individual.
