I completed my Ph.D. at a renowned university, everything was going well and I was really happy about my academic achievements. Exactly around that time, I met a few students who were struggling to find an affordable coaching institute to prepare for competitive exams. Since I knew those students already, I decided to teach them and guide them for their exams. But then I thought, there may be hundreds of other students like them who must be struggling for the same reason, what about them? Coaching institutes charge such hefty fees from the students, which makes them give up on their dreams. That is when I decided to help as many students as possible and provide them access to quality education, says Pawan Sir, Diamond Educator, Teachmint Teacher Recognition Program.
In today's success story of the teachers associated with Teachmint, we bring to you the story of Pawan Sir, an inspiring teacher from Rajasthan's Ganganagar. As Les Brown quotes, 'Help others achieve their dreams and you will achieve yours', Pawan Sir is also fulfilling his dreams by helping others in achieving their goals. Dr. Pawan Sharma is a super-talented teacher and a very humble human being, to say the least. Observing the exploitation of students' money in the name of good education shattered him. The crunch of good teachers in his area was a major reason behind students' suffering. He couldn't see all of that and wanted to bring a change. Therefore, ten years ago, he started a coaching institute by the name 'Sri Aditya Classes' in Anupgarh and he is taking it to greater heights with each passing year. He majorly teaches Hindi and History to the students preparing for competitive exams like SSC, Railways, etc. With the support of his team, their institute has given hundreds of successful government selections. The fee of their coaching institute is very minimal, they also offer the flexibility of payment in monthly installments to the students.
While running his institute for several years, he observed another hurdle in the learning of the students. While the local students were able to reach out to them, the students from the nearby areas were still facing problems like geographical barriers. During the first wave of the pandemic, he came across the various benefits of online teaching, he decided to take his institute online as well. He started teaching on Teachmint and with his rigorous efforts and hard work, he won the Diamond Educator Award in a very short span of time. Here is what he has to say about his experience-
' When I started my online teaching journey, I started it with an aim to reach the maximum number of students possible. Making quality education accessible to each student is my only goal. Receiving the Diamond Educator Trophy is no more than a blessing for me, I feel so motivated and supported. My students are so proud of me that each one of them congratulated me personally, it feels like a personal achievement to them. I am elated beyond words, all thanks to Teachmint'.
Pawan Sir also believes that there are a lot of teachers who are yet to explore the world of online education. He finds online teaching a pool of opportunities for them. 'Teachers should not hesitate from trying new things and learning something new each day. He suggests teachers to explore online teaching and take their classes to the next level', added Pawan Sir.
We are delighted to share the story of such an inspiring personality and we wish him all the best for his future.
