Teaching

Grounded in a Rogerian perspective, I endeavour to foster an academic atmosphere rich in trust, understanding, and mutual respect. My approach prioritizes student-centred learning, recognizing the profound impact of collaborative relationships and hands-on experiential methods. I aim to offer a holistic learning experience by intertwining theory, research, and practice. This fusion imparts knowledge and ensures that learners emerge comprehensively equipped, feeling both recognized and deeply valued in their educational journey.
