Teaching Philosophy:

  • As a teacher, I feel it is my responsibility to provide the tools and skills my students need for success and a framework to help them progress. I feel students learn best when they feel empowered to try new skills in a safe environment where their individual needs are acknowledged. I believe that every student deserves an empathetic environment, where their mistakes can be turned into learning experiences and they are encouraged to continue despite their limitations. I strive to create a space where students can experiment safely and find solutions on their own so they can eventually become independent professionals.
