Paras Arya, who hails from the 'Brass City' of Uttar Pradesh- Moradabad is an inspiration for everyone out there. As they say 'sky is the only limit and your will is the only barrier', Paras sir has proved it. Being a topper in his school days and securing 96.4% in his senior secondary, he made his place in one of the most renowned Universities, Delhi University.
He joined Hindu College- University of Delhi almost 1.5 years ago for pursuing Mathematics Honors. Being proud of his academic career he was satisfied with what he was doing for himself, but he always wanted to do something for the betterment of society.
Right after joining college, his roller-coaster ride started, as Delhi University is known for the adventurous life it offers. His college societies offered him a lot of options to choose between. There were dance societies, sports societies, drama societies, etc that offered a lot of fun and memorable college life for sure. But Paras sir had a different mindset, he wanted to help the underprivileged, bring smiles on faces, extend love and share all the knowledge he had. Hence, he chose NSS- The National Service Scheme (NSS) is a Central Sector Scheme of the Government of India, Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports. He picked up the opportunity to help the needy as he believed in-
“When opportunity presents itself, don’t be afraid to go after it.”-Eddie Kennison
Teaching so many students with managing them was not a piece of cake for him, but he refused to give up. Paras sir found that online teaching is the best way to teach without compromising on his studies. He started teaching online but faced many difficulties. He struggled in maintaining the attendance of his students, using different apps for sharing notes was another difficult task. But not being able to take MCQ tests was the biggest hustle for him, as that was his way of teaching.
Then he got to know about Teachmint and all his problems took aback. Here is what Paras sir has to say about Teachmint-
“Teachmint is my go-to online teaching app when it comes to teaching my students online. Not only me, many other teachers whom I know, consider Teachmint as a one-stop solution for the problems a teacher, especially an online teacher might face. My students love the new way of studying and they appreciate me for it. I teach moral values, extracurricular activities to all my students All thanks to Teachmint for continuously updating their features and adding new ones like live class and MCQ tests. Teachmint has shown me a completely new direction in life and I feel so lucky to be fulfilling my dream of helping the needy with the help of Teachmint.”
When asked about his message for other teachers out there he said that teaching should not be considered as a business, instead it should be seen as a social service, a gesture of humanity, and a kind deed. He says-
'If a teacher teaches 2 underprivileged students for free with 20 other students who can afford his fees, it wouldn't affect him much. But this might change the life of those 2 underprivileged students in a positive way. Every teacher should consider teaching as an act of humanity and should never refrain from giving their best to the society.'
