My teaching philosophy reflects three main goals that I strive to achieve in the classroom: (1) fostering an environment of inclusion and respect (2), facilitating effective learning that relies on clarity and consistency, interest and engagement, and real-world application, and (3) creating a positive culture of learning that supports mutual respect, feedback and communication, and curiosity.
In my Students' Words
My teaching philosophy has evolved over the years but being student-centered has remained constant as the core of it. Since then, I have had excellent teaching opportunities including but not limited to serving as a teaching assistant at McMaster University (2017-2021) and K.N. Toosi University (2015-2017) for undergraduate, MBA, and Executive courses in organizational behavior and human resources management, teaching an introductory course to more than 140 students, and obtaining a teaching and learning certificate from McPherson Institute.
