Anand sir, a multi-talented teacher who comes from the beautiful city of Bihar- Bihar Sharif is an English teacher and a die-hard fan of Shakespeare. His story is something that has the power to inspire every heart. A super-skilled English teacher and an incredible writer, he recently published his book called-'World From the Eyes of Children' which is a combination of good writing and inspiring real-life stories. He is pursuing a master's in English from a renowned university in Bihar and is very passionate about improving himself as a person and as a teacher every day.
When asked about his inspiration behind becoming a teacher, his childhood memories flashed in front of him and he became nostalgic.
'I always wanted to become a teacher, nothing fascinated me more than a board and red pens, not even my fancy toys. Teaching is in my DNA, as many of my family members are teachers. I couldn't imagine being in any other field except teaching. The joy, the warmth, the happiness, and the energy I feel around my students keeps me going. If I don't teach for a day, I start feeling irritated and uneasy.’
Anand sir has been associated with Teachmint for over a year now, and he considers Teachmint as his extended family. This is what he has to say about his journey-
“There came a time in my life when I wanted to expand my horizons and help as many students as I can by teaching online. I started on my own, used different social media platforms to give my best to the students who invested their trust in me. But nothing worked out, every application had its own terms & conditions, limitations, or policies that did not suit the functioning of an online classroom. I wasn't able to take classes for more than 45 minutes in one go. The reconnecting process used to break my flow of teaching and distracted my students too. That was the moment I realized the need for a good online teaching app that is designed especially for teaching, unlike the other meeting apps. I did try reaching out to the customer support team of various apps but never got a good response or the answer to my questions. All I received was the advice to buy their premium subscriptions that weren't even worth it."
And one day, I landed up installing Teachmint on a friend's suggestion, since the app had multiple features, I wanted to understand the app well and hence I called the team. I couldn't believe the kind of response I received, the two-hour-long call was rather a good conversation and discussion than just a formality. I clarified each and every doubt I had regarding online teaching and the Teachmint team was so supportive. I still call the team whenever I have new suggestions and Teachmint actually considers the demands and suggestions of the teachers associated with them. I love everything about Teachmint but my most favorite feature has to be the poll feature. It makes my students so happy and my class much more interesting.
Anand sir thinks that with the help of Teachmint, teachers can reach greater heights as Teachmint is a platform that provides every teacher a fair chance to prove their potential by making online teaching easier for them.
‘I cannot thank Teachmint enough for thinking so much about the needs of an online tutor. In such times, when we really needed a good teacher-centric app, Teachmint was no less than a rescue for all of us. I recommended Teachmint to all the teachers I knew and today even they thank me for introducing them to Teachmint’
