My Teaching Philosophy
Yu (Tony) Zhang
An instructor’s responsibility is not only to deliver knowledge, but to also teach students the how and why behind learning. Accordingly, my teaching objectives are to help students conceptually understand accounting issues, think critically as decision-makers, and develop the ability to practice their knowledge in the real world. Engaging students in a way that encourages them to become self-disciplined learners is a top priority, and it fundamentally impacts the way I interact with my students.
I found that classes at LTU can't be matched by other institutions because the teachers also have industry experience. This allows students to pair the theory with practice for the best learning.”
