Teaching Philosophy
My teaching philosophy aims to prepare students to find Computer Science related jobs in fields where students excel and/or desire to be. I work directly with students to find their niches and desires in the field as medical doctors find theirs. Computer Science is such a broad field, from administration to programming, from JavaScript to C, from Internet of Things to sales of any of these opportunities, each student must figure out what he/she would like to be in his/her first step outside of the university, and I help all angles of these opportunities and help with appropriate technologies.
