What is your teaching philosophy?

If I get my students to think in class, I have succeeded.

Why did you choose your profession?

I was in the middle of my biology degree, and I started to tutor a fellow classmate. I found I like the explaining more than I like what I was explaining! I added the degree, and was practically given my first teaching job. Once I started, I was hooked.
