My goal is not to teach my pupils, but to attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.

Dr. Emanuele Cicero strongly believes that the best environments he can provide for his students are the ones that lead them to take responsibility for their learning. What a difference it makes in a student’s mind knowing that they’ve discovered the answer for themselves, or been able to create it if it wasn’t there.

He believes that as a Faculty, you’re the most important part of a student’s life. Your love of learning and passion can be inspiring to any student you teach. You are a tutor, an enabler, and a caregiver combined, and you can—and will—make a difference.

Through the teaching process he learned that studying is an important part of gaining an education, but reviewing and internalizing facts and data will only get a student so far. What they really crave are those moments where they truly connect with their teacher and learn a lesson that no textbook or website could ever provide. These are the priceless lessons of real life, from someone who has had those experiences and made the mistakes, and grown as a human being because of them. That’s you, and those experiences are like gold to any student. Make them happen as much as you possibly can.

As a faculty he strongly believes that his goal is to awaken a student’s belief in themselves.
Inspiring curiosity and sparking the desire for knowing in students.
He believes that as a teacher, you are the best guide for your students in the move towards this kind of illumination.

He strives to get students curious about discovering knowledge for themselves, and focus on their interests and inherent skills and natural talents.

If there’s anyone who is in a position to bring positive change into the world every day, it’s a teacher. Dr. Emanuele Cicero strive every day for that purpose.

The beautiful thing about learning and investing time in knowledge is that no one can take it away from you.

At the end of the day, learning is a deeply personal experience. When something is learned, understood, and finally becomes transparent to the learner, it is a very special kind of individual accomplishment that changes that person forever. The mind becomes refreshed and more open, new neural connections are formed, and curiosity expands. The more we learn, the more we want to learn.
