Teaching Philosophy

My goal is to provide students an understanding of accounting concepts that can be applied in their professional accounting career or any other career path they choose. I emphasize an interactive classroom environment where students develop the ability to discuss the concepts learned instead of solely focusing on memorization. I am enthusiastic about the courses I teach and am committed to providing my students a challenging learning experience that will assist in their future success.
