Teaching Philosophy:

My teaching approach is to not just teach the facts, but to teach students to be critical thinkers and independent learners, enabling them to build their own understanding and create their own knowledge. I also link what students are learning to real-life applications, encouraging an appreciation of how fascinating and relevant the study of science is.
