Wrenn’s teaching philosophy involves presenting the material to students to create an interest in the field of computer science and to present it in a manner that can be understood. He loves teaching problem-solving and incorporating multiple teaching strategies for the visual learner, the auditory learner, the reading/writing learners, and the active learners.
