What do you love most about teaching your subject?

Science is a creative subject that changes lives and society. It is factual and not open to debate or polarization, it is inclusive and promotes cooperation. We need more scientists, more kids and adults who trust and understand the direction that science can take us. Hence, I like to present topics and their examples to my students and see them develop skills and interests that can make them confident and thoughtful in a technological and ethical arena.

What is your teaching style?

I exploit the student's preferred way of learning; emotional, kinesthetic, practical, or academic, using resources to fit their preferred way of engaging and developing their skills in a topic and a subject. Online teaching is brilliant as it allows me to use multimedia resources to support their learning and science capital in interesting contexts.
