Teaching Philosophy

Important skills I want to teach my students

The most important skill is critical thinking, knowing how to solve a problem by addressing it from multiple angles.

Teaching methods to reach these goals

I consistently challenge my students with intriguing and interesting problems.

My favorite projects

My students and I consistently enjoy Geometric Constructions. There’s something magical about using a good old-fashioned compass and a straightedge to make a geometric concept present itself.

What I like best about teaching at Seven Hills

I love the students, plain and simple!
