My Teaching philosophy is :

I want to rise the capacity of young generation and help the future professionals to better shape thier destiny. 

I know that the aim of education should be to encourage seeking answers.

The students actually are centre; it means I have a student centered philosophy.

My aim is to enable the students to achieve their potential, not only in a specific class, but in life in general, by always helping them and extending my availability to them any time they need help, for this they need to be treated fairly without discrimination. 

I will provide these through establishing a friendly atmosphere within and outside the university.

I teach at college of engineering, civil engineering department.

My teaching way inside the class :

When I enter the class before starting my new topic I collect some information through the class by asking the students different questions which is related to the topic that I have prepared.

Delivering to the students, through those questions I can be able to get the general idea, and from there according to the general idea I can start my presentation. This is not enough of course I am taking students feedback from the mid and the end of the class in order to measure the students awareness whether they are following or not.

Actually these are beside the questions from the students any time while I am presenting or explaining if there is an ambiguity, I always taught my students not to hesitate any time they have a question to ask otherwise they may not be able follow the class. 

Finally I aim to encourage a sense of wonderment in the world around us. Although I am an engineer and teach mostly engineering students, this is not in my mind an exclusive club. We are all engineers. We all wonder about the world around us. We must continue to ask and encourage to build "how and why?" questions in order to advance.
