Teaching Philosophy:
My philosophy is derived from my background and knowledge in educational psychology, human development, my private practice and experiences with culturally diverse students and children over the years. The combination of each of these experiences has helped me to better understand human nature, and in turn, help my teaching. I see each person as an individual, each one learning in his own way. My education (Ph.D. in educational psychology) and background (private practice) has taught me that it is important to make a strong connection with the students. I get to know each student and how he/she learns the best. I try to take into account the individual differences of each student as I prepare for each class, planning a variety of modalities to accommodate these different styles.
