Educational Philosophy

An effective educator is beyond delivering knowledge and skills in class. An effective educator can assess individual students accurately, meet the needs of the students and further inspire them in order to motivate their study. My years of diverse experiences as a clinician, educator, and scholar grant me the perspective to encourage the students' personal and professional development.
