Teaching Philosophy

Teaching is helping others to learn how to learn. Learning is repeating or practicing specific responses to specific stimuli until a satisfactory response is achieved. When sufficient associations and concepts have been learned, then they may be combined to sustain creative self-directed learning. Remaining at the levels of association and conceptual learning renders creative self-directed learning unattainable and increases the chances that you will remain a dependent thinker (versus an independent thinker). This increases the possibility that your doubts and indescribable perplexities will become a part of those who follow you. Learning is enhanced when you avoid having to learn under pressure, when you use all of your senses, when you receive immediate feedback, when learning resources are available -- and when you trust your intuition.
