My personal philosophy is to have fun! I refrain from rote lecture and emphasize problem solving and independence in learning. With every lesson and lecture, I try to incorporate an interactive element such as story telling or simple dialogue while running through problems. I believe that ultimately, it is the student's responsibility to complete assignments, adhere to lessons, and achieve. My students succeed on their own, but I help facilitate the process.
