My Philosophy of Teaching

I teach the first years of undergraduate students. These are pivotal years: many of them are lost, asking too many questions, about their current studies and their future. I believe what they need is to show them that you care about them.

In my lab classes, I take care of teams of 2 or 3 students every week. What I do is give them individual group feedback: what they tend to do wrong, what they need to improve, how to proceed in the following weeks. The results are usually worth the effort. The feeling of seeing students start off really badly and grow over the weeks is the reason why I am teaching.

A quote in adequation with my philosophy would be: “Education is not to be viewed as something like filling a vessel with water but, rather, assisting a flower to grow in its own way” - Bertrand Russell
