Teacher-Tutor AST

I am Eduardo Marentes, Founder of Atomic Springboard Tutoring (AST). Prior to creating AST, I taught Chemistry, Biology, and Science in High Schools in Canada and USA.

My career in education has taken me from my early teaching years in Colombia to my post-graduate and post-doctoral studies in Canada and USA. My passion for teaching began when I lectured a Plant Biochemistry course at the University of Guelph, then I went on to become a certified teacher in Ontario, Indiana and Delaware where I taught Chemistry, Biology and General Sciences for all grades in high school over a period of 12 years.
