My teaching philosophy is to make mathematics accessible and approachable to every person. I think that students often internalize mistakes in mathematics and carry it as a connotation of their self. It is my goal to help students understand that math is like any other discipline or life in general where mistakes are natural. A mistake in math is not a commentary on ones persona but a reflection of ones journey to understanding.
