Teaching Philosophy

 

Teaching is one of my foremost passions – whether it be teaching the intricacies of Persian grammar, the life and lessons of the indomitable Malcolm X, or the contemplative reveries of Islamic mysticism. 

I teach students to read closely and analytically, and to love and meditate on the questions that present themselves in life and literature rather than rush to find and hang onto answers and solutions.
