Philosophy:
I use a variety teaching methodologies to accommodate the different learning styles of my students. I supplement my lectures with animations, video clips, and use of models of molecules when appropriate. I encourage student participation in my classes practicing my student-centered teaching philosophy. Students who are unaccustomed to this philosophy resist at first, but with a consistent encouragement they rise to the challenge and begin to be active learners. I believe that students learn best when they remain active in the classroom.
