I have a passion for teaching and promote learning that can be applied by students to the real world by getting them to work on experiential projects. The inherent belief that interactive learning promotes engagement and commitment to acquiring knowledge guides me in my profession. I like to go the extra mile to help students learn as sharing knowledge and experiences increases the willingness to learn and is important to raise empathetic and skilled beings .

At the undergraduate level, Digital and Social media marketing, Marketing research, Principles of marketing and Advertising and Sales Promotion, International Marketing and Business to Business Marketing.
I also teach the following courses to MBA students online with the Empire State University; Global marketing management, Marketing research, Corporate communication and marketing strategy Marketing analytics and Global leadership competencies.
