I am a postgraduate of the University of Loughborough (MsC) that has an interest in teaching academic hard skills using a gamification form of education. With technology and data advancing at such a rapid rate, I believe education should adapt alongside the evolutions.

My aim for these courses is to teach hard skills such as data science and CRM analytics in a way that anyone with an interest can understand and be introduced to its fundamentals. This is because I aim to present complex models and formulas into an easy-to-understand and fun way.
