Teaching Philosophy
Philippa believes that teaching is a two-way street: her goal is to encourage a hands-on, open learning environment, with dialogue and discussion. She always tells her students, “It’s my job to teach you to the best of my ability; it’s your job to tell me if there is something you don’t understand.”
