An effective teacher prepares and delivers lessons to motivate and guide students to discover knowledge and to acquire expertise in a subject.
My teaching is based on preparation and patience to be able to develop or increase student enthusiasm and interest for lifelong learning and for the integration of multidisciplinary knowledge in order to solve real-life challenges and problems. I enjoy creating interesting lectures with plenty of examples and, whenever possible, complementing them with hands-on activities and experiments.
