Many times, we hear inspirational stories from different corners of the world. Today, we bring you the story of Vikash Kumar Singh, a private educator from Rohtas, Bihar. Vikash Sir is an inspiration for everyone who feels they cannot overcome roadblocks.
Vikash Sir has recently been awarded the Diamond Educator Award. However, he mentions that the journey was never easy for him. At times, he felt the need to give up on teaching. But his passion for spreading education stopped him from doing so.
Vikash Kumar Singh has been lighting the fate of his students for the past 17 years. He is continuously rendering education to more than 700 students through his institute Vidyarthi Mathematics Tutorial. However, he faced various challenges during the pandemic.
Like every other individual, the pandemic also hit Vikash Sir. As a consequence of this unfortunate event, he lost his job. But he learned about online education and decided to give it a try. After giving a second thought to the idea of conducting online classes, Vikash Sir downloaded the Teachmint app on his mobile. Then he launched his online classroom through the application during the pandemic. Since then, he has been a user of our app.
Vikash Sir has always focused on spreading knowledge. His interest in studies has helped him gain various recognitions at local levels. Apart from being an active educator, Vikash Sir is also an active learner. His hunger to gain knowledge has helped him get various degrees. He has a B.Ed degree along with a Master's degree in History.
Talking about his online classes, Vikash Sir says that the pandemic gave him a chance to learn new skills. He also learned about new technologies and the process of going live to teach his students. Vikash Sir is grateful for online education. He believes that it has helped him break geographical barriers. Now Vikash Sir is providing education to students outside Bihar. Earlier, he used to record his lectures in regional language; however, soon he broke the geographical barriers. Now he records his classes in Hindi and English. This has also helped him hone his communication skills.
Vikash Sir shares his joy of becoming a diamond educator. He says that the journey to conduct live classes of 1000 hours is enriching and fulfilling. However, this was not always the case as he faced various technical challenges in the initial days. During the pandemic, Vikash Sir lost his source of income. So when he knew about Teachmint and how he could conduct online classes through the application, Vikash Sir decided to give it a try. The continuous support and encouragement from his students and their parents eased the online education journey for him.
In Vikash Sir's words, ‘I got continuous support from Teachmint from time to time. They recognized my potential and awarded me with various trophies. I am excited to get this Diamond Educator Award. When I got the email, I jumped with joy without recognizing that I was surrounded by my students.’
Vikash Sir loves teaching and is motivated to spread education in every corner of the world. He believes online education is valuable for students who face difficulties traveling to an institute’s location. Students can learn from anywhere at their convenience through online classes.
