My teaching philosophy revolves around the ability to communicate expectations to my students. When expectations are firmly communicated, students can better understand the purpose of the class and what they need to do to get the most out of it. I also believe it's necessary to have the confidence to learn through trial and error, both as a student and a teacher.
Here are the classes I have taught, listed roughly in chronological order:
- Math 106 - Calculus I (Summer 2019)
- Math 301 - Geometry Matters (Spring 2019)
- A course for pre-service elementary teachers covering common high school geometry topics.
- Math 203 - Contemporary Mathematics (Fall 2018 - 2 sections)
- This course covers various math topics considered to be of particular use or interest to the general population, such as voting theory, growth and finance, statistics, and graph theory.
- Math 300 - Mathematics Matters (Spring 2018)
- A course for pre-service elementary teachers covering the nuances of the mathematics taught in grades K-5.
- Math 103 - College Algebra and Trigonometry (Fall 2017)
- Math 101 - College Algebra (Fall 2016, Spring 2017)
- Math 107 (Recitation) - Calculus II (Spring 2016, Summer 2016)

These are the courses I have been a grader for.
