My teaching methodology is interdisciplinary and student-centered. I teach my students to engage with the subject matter critically and encourage them to form opinions based on textual facts and general knowledge.
I have been teaching at the college level for over ten years. Many of my students have graduated college with honors and have gone on to earn graduate and professional degrees. I have been published in the Encyclopedia of Islam.
