I started teaching Mathematics and Physics to Secondary and High School students when I was in my first year of university —more or less ten years ago— Since then, teaching has became one of the most important activities in my life.
From my third year at university, I had the opportunity of teaching a number of classes at gradudate level. In my final year, I took part in a governmental community service programme called "Servicio Social". As a part of this programme I had to complete 480 hours of teaching to undergraduate students. I was in charged of teaching the module Introduction to Mathematics to several groups from the Bussines School and Engineering Department at the Technological University of the Mixteca. Servicio-Social programme has made important contributions to the welfare of the people in Mexico. You can find more information about it below.
After obtaining my Master degree, I worked as a researcher assistant at the Center for Research in Mathematics for six months. During that period, I taught the module Measure Theory at graduate and postgraduate level.
In 2012, I moved to the UK to study a PhD in Statistics at the University of Warwick. Since then, I have served as a teaching assistant for the Department of Statistics.

In Mexico, where 52 percent of the population lives below the national poverty line, the higher education system plays a key role in promoting change by educating professionals who can improve economic and social conditions. In an effort to have a positive impact on society, Mexico has established a mandatory service component for students enrolled in higher education. This requirement benefits marginalized sectors of society while raising students' awareness and deepening their sense of social responsibility.
National rules and bylaws govern this mandatory service requirement. Service should align with students’ majors, and students must complete 75 percent of their academic credits before beginning their service. Most students are required to engage in 480 hours of work in a period of six to twelve months, with students majoring in health science required to perform one thousand hours of service. According to Mexico’s Ministry of Public Education, approximately 780,000 higher education students complete more than 374.4 million hours of service every year (Dirección General de Planeación y Programación Secretaria de Educación Pública 2012).
Mexico’s community service programme has proved to be an effective mechanism for engaging undergraduate students in civic work that benefits society. Besides, it assists universities in their efforts to educate citizens who can use their privilege to better Mexican society.
Mathematics is about progress and adventure and emotion
Mathematics is of central importance to modern society. It provides the vital underpinning of the knowledge economy. It is essential in the physical sciences, technology, business, financial services and many areas of ICT. It is also of growing importance in biology, medicine and many of the social sciences...
