I always start with a review that helps students understand the flow of concepts and connect the dots better. I teach students in an interactive lecture format so students can ask questions and contribute in the middle of the lecture. I involve students in content-related activities so they can directly apply what they learn.”

I come from a developing country, and I am very conscious of the inequality that prevails in society. Through education, we can give a chance to everyone.”
