Teaching Philosophy

My approach to teaching is multimedia-driven, interactive and learning-centered. Since equipping students with the tools to analyze cultural realia (films, texts, historical artifacts) and write about them meaningfully constitutes the core objective of my instruction, I model such in lecture and craft writing assignments to encourage the application of these skills. My grading aims provide thorough, encouraging feedback in a conversational, human tone.
