Different students with different motivation and different educational level require
different teaching approaches and philosophy. According to the fact that most of my
students are majored in non-technology area, with my rich onsite engineering and
business experience, I introduced many examples from real lives and explained math
concepts in simple, straight forward and intuitive manner.
I pay close attention to students’ feedback and communications. I discuss with my
students using the short interval after or before classes to collect how students feel. I
actively invite students to my office if they have any difficulties. I timely respond
students’ questions in email. I encourage students to ask questions without considering if
the question makes sense or not. I also encourage students never give up when some of
them feel losing hearts.
I modify my lecture notes for every new semester. I can always find better explanation
for even a simple concept.
