Teaching Technique

“I think he is really good at thinking in new ways about how to present challenging material to the class, he often leads open discussions that allow students to engage in the subject matter.”

“Kaan was always very active and enthusiastic during discussions. He asked critical questions and got us all to engage in class. You can tell he’s been teaching this material for a while because of his deep understandings of the complex ideas and gets us to try to come to those conclusions with his questions. A very genuine person that cares about his students.”

He also is very intrigued by the material we learned in the course and this helped to make discussions more thought-provoking and engaging. 5/5 stars for Kaan!”
