Ph.D. in Chemistry with over 15 years experience with proven performance in higher education and research

Methodology

My teaching methods are based on flipped class and problem resolution. This methodology allows that students can be able to solve any kind of test and realize where and when the chemistry is related. By contextualizing all the phenomena involved in life and surroundings, students are able to connect concepts with applications.

Background

Chemist with over 15 years of experience in R&D, inorganic chemistry, oil & gas industry and
nanotechnology applied to materials science, with proven performance in higher education and
research, in line with global trends in sustainability, science, and technology. Passionated by science and its applications.

I met Oscar when He was working for a well recognized Oil & Gas Company. I had the opportunity to work with him on several research projects.

Oscar has worked independently, in groups, and as a project leader. He is a very bright and qualified individual, and a pleasure to work with.

Oscar also joined us in our corporate university sharing his vast knowledge in Chemistry, Physics, Biochemistry, and other subjects. He has such great teaching skills.

I believe that Oscar would be an excellent choice for your learning process powered by his ability to communicate with students.

Deivi

Professor Oscar is one of the best practical teachers that I have never known with multiple skills and pedagogic methods in teaching Chemistry, Biology, Physics, and Math. Regards his experience I knew that Dr. Corona is recognized as a good researcher in 3 countries around the world as the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, and Ecuador where was teaching at high school and university levels. With novel STEAM learning and charismatics ways to teach, the purpose of Dr. Corona is that all students get gratification after learning something and they can understand the most valuable of the knowledge.

Laura

I have known Professor Oscar for more than 15 years and I can attest to his dedication in research and training. The pedagogical profile of Oscar Corona is extensive, he has huge experience in the management of educational tools for the teaching of chemistry, physics, mathematics, and biology. With Professor Oscar Corona students will learn in a meaningful and pedagogical way, with innovative tools that allow the learning of content in addition to promoting critical thinking from a scientific and technological perspective, 100 percent recommended.
