I like to teach using associations with real life, day to day objects so that students can familiarize with new concepts in a more productive way. Moreover, using examples that are fun for the student helps them settle in the knowledge.
I am from Peru, bilingual in both Spanish and English. I graduated from Rutgers University in New Jersey with a Bachelor's degree in Food Science and I love teaching about how science can be fun,exciting, and a rewarding career in today's world.
