description of :
When planning a curriculum or interacting with students, I am always conscious of their different learning styles and rates, what they have already learned and what they will need to learn in the future. Feedback from students has been vital to the process of growth I have undergone since I began teaching: I learned from them, for example, the pacing of lectures, and effective ways to help them learn in small group discussions.

Personal contact with students is essential to my approach. Many need encouragement to talk to their teachers, so I emphasize my availability for informal discussion and my willingness to help them sort out any problems they have with what they are learning. My experience as a teacher is greatly enriched by this contact with students. I am fortunate to teach in a professional school where I can follow the progress of the students through the program and sometimes beyond graduation.
Teacher's qualifications:
• Facilitate adult learning, non-traditional teaching, and course training; serve as part-time Professor; provide classroom
instruction, lecturers, and training in an online environment/virtual campus.
• Design curriculum material, and course outlines; evaluate and critique papers and class presentations; challenges students,
encourage participation and motivate students to learn effectively.
• Inform students on course requirements, evaluation procedures, and class participation and attendance requirements
according to the syllabus; utilize teaching aids (all MS Office, Adobe Connect, etc.) to convey the subject matter to students.
• Provide effective counseling to prevent student dropouts and assist in student retention.

's preferred teaching style:
By their very nature, people are inquisitive. The goal of education should be to encourage seeking answers, as it is in this way that we advance. I seek to facilitate this advancement of knowledge, and the main theme of my teaching philosophy is reasoned thought.

Whether in the classroom or in meeting groups of the general public, my goal is to encourage thinking in rational ways, so that this can be applied in other, unfamiliar situations. I particularly emphasize learning to think about trends and directions (e.g. increasing this will decrease that), rather than rote memorization of facts.

In order to further encourage seeking answers to the questions around us, I try to encourage the questions themselves. All teachers should do so, but it is difficult to "allow the time" for this to take place, especially in a classroom setting. One way in which I have done this is to design a course based on answering questions. Another important element of my teaching philosophy is encouraging reasoned written and oral work, especially in developing logical arguments. A major factor of this is spending my time making suggestions, as students can only learn to present their ideas more effectively if someone shows them how and why modifications could be made to their natural style to make it clearer.
