ABOUT

Hello everyone! I am Praveena @ Dr.Veena ūüôā

I have been in the educational
field for the past 9 years and have taught at various universities, institutes and learning centres. Before moving on further, let me share my educational background. I have obtained my Masters (Mechanical Engineering)  and PhD (Aerospace Engineering)  from the University  of Malaya. My research area includes Advanced Materials (Nanocomposites and Shape Memory Polymers) and biomimetics. My PhD research focused on biomimetics (bio mimicking a natural organism) In this research, I have focused mainly on dragonfly wing structures in an attempt to mimic it for use in drones. I have produced a few international ISI ranked journals throughout my candidature. I have attached  the references to my publications below:

NOW MY JOURNEY IN THE ACADEMIC FIELD….

Teaching has been my passion ever since I was young. As mentioned, I have been in this field for the past 9 years and have a proven track record of success in coaching students especially in the field of Chemistry and Additional Mathematics ( SPM, IGCSE, GCE, STPM and A level)  This site is dedicated to all students who would wish to score well in these subjects. Learning materials such as notes, webinars and videos will be provided periodically. Also, articles on examination tips will be posted as a guideline to students.

It is my aim that students will be able to benefit from this website and once again a warm welcome to Dr. Veena’s forte brought to you by ACE Edu & Training Services. Hoping that students will be able to appreciate the beauty of Chemistry and Mathematics after visiting this site. ūüôā

 

 

p.s: That is a picture of me during my MEng convocation ceremony in University of Malaya. It was taken when I was totally exhausted after a very long day and since I do not have the habit of taking selfies,I am not able to place my latest picture. However, I have created a Gravatar image which I personally like very much and if I was cartoonified I would really wish to look like this. Uploading it here for the fun of it. 

 

Wishing you all success
