I have taught a wide variety of courses that range from Modern Greek for Beginners to the graduate seminar in Syntax. As a result I have to employ different teaching methodologies according to the requirements of each course; at the same time, there is a set of principles that guides my overall approach to teaching:

1. Always be clear about the objectives of the course, what is required of students in terms of grades, and the important dates in terms of assignments.

2. Always be available for students whether in the classroom or outside of class time.

3. Try to incorporate as much hands-on learning as the course material permits.

4. Encourage students to express their own ideas and opinions.

5. Try to communicate to students why I find the subject matter fascinating and worth studying.

6. To learn from my students as well as teach them.

7. To work with students to help them realize their plans beyond the university.
