Rajesh Kumar Sahu runs a coaching institute in Chhattisgarh to help students prepare for different state and national-level competitions. His coaching institute, All In One Coaching, guides students in preparing for railways, banking, SSC, and other state-level government examinations. Rajesh Sir started small, and currently, he is teaching nearly 200 students through online and offline classes.
When talking about the modes of conducting classes, Rajesh Sir mentions that his classes run on online and offline modes. He says, ‘My institute runs on both modes. However, we mainly use online classes for revision purposes. Most of the doubt clearing sessions from our end are conducted in online mode. Moreover, live classes have also helped me extend my student base outside Chhattisgarh. Now, I am providing education to students without worrying about geographical barriers.’ In addition, Rajesh Sir also uses online classes to provide crash courses to students preparing for competitive examinations.
When asked about his journey in the education industry, Rajesh Sir talked about how he started a career as a private teacher. He said, ‘I was working for a private firm after completing my engineering degree. However, I was not satisfied with my job. When I discussed this with my friends, they suggested preparing for government exams. I took their suggestion and studied well. Also, I cleared many state-level exams; however, I did not join any of those jobs. Instead, I decided to take a teaching career.’
When asked about how his coaching institute is different from other tuition centers, Rajesh Sir mentions that his institute supports students in every way possible. They provide unhindered support to their students in exam preparation. He says, ‘We make our students solve previous year questions to help them clear their understanding on different topics. Our institute believes in a practical learning approach and helps students learn better by using different teaching styles.’
When we discussed the challenges faced during the pandemic, Rajesh Sir said that he was disinclined toward online learning. However, his students motivated him to start online coaching to help them prepare for exams. That’s when Rajesh Sir learned about Teachmint and used the platform to conduct live classes.
When Rajesh Sir learned about winning the Diamond Educator Award by Teachmint, he was overjoyed. He said that his friends, family members, and students were excited to see his trophy. After getting the award, he shared his pictures on social media. He was happy to get congratulatory messages from his friends and followers on different social media platforms.
Rajesh Sir has a special message for his students. He mentions,
‘Students should never stop dreaming. If they have dreamt of reaching a certain milestone at a specific time, they must focus on that objective. They must work hard to achieve whatever they have thought for themselves.’
We wish Rajesh Sir all the best and hope to keep learning from him. Thank you for choosing us.
