An engineer by qualification, an educator at heart
I have been teaching Theoretical, and Applied Math for Engineering and Business since year 2005.
I began my teaching journey as a Visiting Faculty (Guest Lecturer) to various institutes and coaching classes, then went on to start my own coaching institute, joined hands with like minded educators and we grew this to multiple branches in various suburbs of bombay city.
During the same time I also got invited as guest lecturer for GATE-IIT entrance exam coaching across various cities in India, and that gave me great opportunity to teach and interact with students from across India.
In pursuit of reaching out to students globally, and quite frankly to avoid mad traffic of Bombay I started exploring online coaching opportunities and started getting students from all around the world, I also taught students from worlds most prestigious schools and universities such as UC Berkeley, Cornell Med school etc.
This exposure to Curricula of worlds finest unis, which has emphasis on problem solving and First Principal thinking has a lot of influence on my teaching style. So as a teacher I only provide guidance and point my student in the right direction, because I strongly believe, spoon feeding every single topic kills creativity and hampers problem solving skills.
Back in the day although we got phenomenal response from students across the globe, especially for IB Diploma Program, AS & A Levels, In India most people were reluctant to adapt to online learning but that also has changed after lockdowns due to covid pandemic. Now even the indian studnets have whole heartedly embraced online mode of learning. So teaching online is my choice and it isn’t something forced upon me! Almost a decade long online teaching experience helped me perfect the ART of TEACHING ONLINE. Even though the student is in different country and time-zone, scheduling a class is hassle-free with scheduling app which shows my availability in student’s local time and upon booking a class you get an email confirmation and also a reminder 30 minutes prior to a class, so booking class is seamless procedure.
All online classes are conducted live 1 on 1 with audio video conferencing softwares like Zoom, Google Meet etc. I use Apple iPad Pro with Apple pencil to precisely write on the digital white board. The online class is highly interactive and engaging, all recording / handwritten notes of each class are shared with student, hence during the class student only need to write down key concept and important formulas. After each and every class student is assigned 1 hour of self study / homework session which is again strategically designed with few questions that makes a student think out of the box and ignite curiosity (smartly assigned HOMEWORK is my secret sauce!) this also lets student reflect on the concept discussed during the class. Last but not the least, we maintain detailed lecture records, home-work status etc. on a Google Sheet which is updated after every class, and the link to the same is shared with parents so that parents can see latest updates at any point in time.
Please note we are a small team of expert, professional & full-time teachers, each one of us is passionate about his/her own subject, and teaching is our profession it is not our hobby or a side hustle. Hence you can expect finest & world-class tutoring.
