Experienced Software Engineer (worked in 2 of the big 5s - FAANG) dedicated to teach the love of coding / algorithms to students

Methodology

My teaching methodology is very practical. I don't regurgitate what are in the classic textbooks. What I do I give students off line you tube videos and slides which they can read off line and come to the classes knowing the background. In the classes, I go over the concepts focusing on the practical aspect of the subject. Reality of the world, less than 1% of us become academics and the rest become in many ways engineers. So
