Teaching Philosophy

I am a teacher who is dedicated to providing high-quality, rigorous, engaging and relevant education, who cultivates students’ appreciation for learning in general and the marketing field more specifically, who harnesses students’ abilities and equips them with skills necessary to achieve their professional and personal goals, who deeply cares about the success and well-being of students, and who can connect well with them and support them in their growth as professionals, future leaders, and people in general. I have had the privilege and honor to teach multiple sections of Marketing Principles at Boston College each year for the last seven years. During that time, my interactions with students both inside and outside the classroom have allowed me to not only contribute significantly to the learning, formation, and success of many Boston College students, but have also provided me with tremendous opportunities for learning, professional and personal growth, and definitely made me a better educator, a better researcher, and a better human being.

 

My teaching philosophy has five key pillars: (1) providing rigorous education that equips students with quantitative, conceptual, and analytical problem-solving skills and tools; (2) creating an environment that stimulates a desire for learning and curiosity in each student, and ensures active engagement of students in the teaching-learning process; (3) cultivating an appreciation for the importance of marketing regardless of students’ majors; (4) fostering real-world application of subject material; and (5) flexibility in instruction in recognition of students’ differences.
