My Teaching

Student Centered Teaching

Welcome! The core of my teaching focuses on students leading the way, whether its the content I cover or the methods used, students are involved every step of the way. Here I cover my core teaching tenets, share some of my teaching resources along with some of the feedback I have received from students. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have questions about my teaching philosophy or any resources you would like to share.

Teaching Philosophy

Relationships Matter

Career Advice for Undergraduate Students

While teaching I would often get asked for career advice for students. I am also a digital packrat (with my website only a small glimpse of my link hoarding). After answering a lot of the same questions, I decided to document my answers and publish them online as a non-comprehensive, opinionated guide.


This is still a work in progress so if you have resources or advice you think I should add, please reach out!
