I am a Research Fellow by profession and an educator by passion. I love to teach students and make them understand complex topics in a fun and lively manner. I have been teaching students from the past two years of various age groups starting from class 8 up to postgraduation, so I have a proper understanding of student psychology of each and every age group. I also am currently working as a Certified dietitian educator and academic instructor in various other online and offline platforms.
