An Electrical and Electronics engineer with about 8 years of teaching experience

Methodology

My teaching method is based on teaching by using examples. I make sure to still provide my students with clear learning goals, but they are able to make their own choices within that framework. I also encourage active learning for my students.

Background

I am a graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering with a Cumulative GPA of 3.0 and over five years of Engineering work experience as a R&D Electronic Engineer at Nkelecom Consulting in Netherlands, R&D Electrical Engineer at ASML Netherlands, Electronic Engineer at Philips Innovation Services and Philips Lighting in Netherlands. I also have about seven years of sales experience as Director of Sales and Maintenance at Best Sales Electronics in Cameroon and about eight years for teaching experience as a High School science teacher at Standard Comprehensive Bilingual High School in Cameroon and an Academic tutor at Fontys University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands.
