Teaching is not just a job for me; it is a passion. My primary focus is to keep my students motivated and engaged in their learning journey, as I believe every student has the potential to succeed. I find immense satisfaction in helping students grow and attain their goals while sharing my native language and culture. I am also grateful to have the chance to learn from my students daily and expand my knowledge. There is no other profession more rewarding than being a professor. Therefore I am committed to giving my best effort every day to make a difference in the lives of my students and, if possible, the wonderful colleagues I have at Tufts University.
