During the 80’s he had an important role in the conservation of the Bachelor of Physics, and nowadays different groups of students still seek his academic advice in difficult subjects, considering that he is known for being an excellent teacher.
Twenty years ago, way before the tutoring programs were introduced formally in the University, he created a project in which some students were selected to be guided in their learning.
