I have a student centered teaching philosophy which guides my lectures and tutoring. It is tailored to the students' backgrounds and interests. In other words, my teaching philosophy is a student-centered approach to education. This approach includes individualized instruction. I believe in a hands-on approach to education. This is founded on Dewey’s and Piaget’s teaching philosophy. I believe in engaging students in situations that appeal to their natural curiosity and interest. It is my responsibility to detect these teaching moments.
I am presently an on ground and online faculty member with 14 years of experience. I have taught 100's of students who have made good grades and have gone on to obtain their chosen degrees. I have practical experience in helping graduate students with their dissertation, advising them on how to narrow their thesis, work on their hypotheses, statistics, and conclusions.
