| What it takes to be a Loyola teacher
The people who teach at Loyola are extraordinary individuals who love what they do - enabling young men and women to master new concepts and emerge as confident professionals in their chosen domains. The pedagogy at Loyola is characterised by 4 features:
Our staff are highly qualified at what they teach
They love to teach, and always have
They teach the slowest graspers, not the quickest
They take it upon themselves to nurture students
The single-most important thing that characterizes a faculty member at Loyola is the complete ownership of their students. We consider ourselves enablers in our wards’ learning and feel responsible for their futures.
