The experiences of teaching at leading global academic institutions have provided an intimate awareness of the high expectations that our students demand. It is my goal to constantly strive to exceed their expectations and to embrace a well-rounded education. This partially accounts for my strong teaching evaluations as listed below. Another measure of success for my pedagogical approach can be seen in the relationships that I have developed with my students after they have left my courses, whereby I continue to mentor them academically and professionally.
