Teaching Philosophy

As a Biology lecturer at the City College of New York, my goals are not just to promote learning of the subject matter but to help students think logically, acquire problem-solving skills, and develop effective study skills.  My pedagogy  goes beyond simply teaching the courses to which I am assigned. I make it a point to ensure that on top of learning the biological concepts, students also know how to study,  manage time well, defend their ideas in class, analyze and present biological data. In this way, I hope that my “teach for transfer” approach can have a lasting impact on students’ perspectives towards learning.
