Teaching

I have over 15 years of teaching experience across multiple student levels. I have worked with and taught individuals who are seriously mentally ill, criminal populations, junior high school, high school, undergraduate and even graduate level students.

My instructional background is very diverse and the courses I have taught over the last 15 years are just as diverse. I have taught introduction to literature, poetry, ESL english, business studies, and even introduction to mathematics up to business calculus at the high school level. At the undergraduate level I have taught management, accounting, marketing, international business, economics, business calculus and communication skills. I have taught marketing, leadership, communications skills, negotiation skills, business law and business ethics at at the Master of Business Administration level. My attitude about teaching is that I am willing to try to teach any class that is asked of me. My background means I have a diverse and very broad understanding of topics and a willingness to try.

My teaching philosophy is that students will rise to the level of expectations. If an instructor has high expectations and can those expectations clearly to the students, they will rise to the challenge. The instructor needs to be very clear and transparent. They need to make sure the students know what is expected of them, and then lead by example.
