I have been teaching in a university setting since 2017. In that time, I have co-taught a range of courses, and independently designed and taught multiple courses of my own.  I have also mentored students one-on-one, led discussions for groups for 10-30 students from across the lifespan, and guest-lectured in colleague’s classes. My primary aim, as an instructor, is to help students cultivate skills and intellectual virtues that they can take with them into the rest of their lives.

Teaching evaluations

Of the 137 students who completed course evaluations while I was at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, 90% agreed or strongly agreed with the statement, "Overall, I learned a great deal from this course," and 97% agreed or strongly agreed with the statement, "The course challenged me to think deeply about the subject matter." In addition to these closed-ended questions, students are asked for comments on the course and instructor. Below are a few select quotes from their responses.
