Biomechanics and Anatomical Kinesiology
I enjoy making a difference in people’s life by sharing my knowledge and helping them understand new concepts and ideas. Most importantly, however, I find teaching an important part of my own learning process.
I believe that the teaching of a particular course should not only be focused on the learning of course materials, but also on teaching students to think independently and develop skills we all need to succeed in this competitive world.
