My teaching philosophy has been carefully developed thanks to my rich teaching experiences and pedagogical training. I have worked at Duke University for five semesters as a teaching assistant for several political science courses. I also designed and taught my own course during my stay at the Humboldt University of Berlin as a visiting researcher. As an educator, I have three distinct teaching principles: In my classes, I encourage my students (1) to understand basic concepts and theories in political science, (2) to connect what they learn to real-world politics, and (3) to develop their critical thinking through analytic writing. My teaching statement is available upon request.
