“It’s been more than twenty seven years since I first started teaching. I still remember my first day at DAV, my first class, my first lecture, and almost every small-big detail about that day. On that very day I realized that choosing teaching as a profession was the right choice I made. I am extremely grateful and proud of my decision. These twenty seven years as a teacher have been wonderful, memorable, and life changing. Learning something new everyday is the biggest gift my profession has given me, Teachmint is one such gift for me.”- Vivekanand Thallam
Vivekanand Thallam is a Mathematics and Science teacher who hails from Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh. He is not only passionate about his profession, but also enthusiastic about learning something new each day. He holds a master’s degree in Science along with a post graduate diploma certificate in Computer Application. The concept of online teaching was appealing enough for Vivekanand Sir as he has always been tech-savvy and he knew the multiple benefits of online teaching. However, finding the right online teaching platform was a struggle for him. Initially, when he began teaching online, he explored various applications but could not convince his inner-self that he was doing the best as an online teacher. Lack of features like whiteboard, live class recording, automated attendance system, etc did make online teaching difficult for him. His search for a good online teaching platform began once again and that is when he came across Teachmint. Vivekanand Sir believes that his journey as an online teacher has been excellent after he started using Teachmint. With more than 150 students enrolled in his classroom on Teachmint, he successfully teaches online.
Some of the wonderful features of Teachmint like ‘instant live polls’ helps me in making my online classes interactive and interesting. Not only me, but my students also love the features. While I was switching to Teachmint from the other applications, I took a demo class and asked my students to choose the best app. Each and every student of mine chose Teachmint on the basis of their enhanced learning experience. That was the moment when I realized that choosing Teachmint was the right decision.
Now he teaches hassle-free and helps his students in the best way possible. He also shared a few teaching tips that he believes have made his teaching better.
I try to understand the learning needs of my students, understand their psychology, and build a connection with them. It helps me in identifying the areas where my students need maximum help from my end. I also make sure to keep updating my teaching strategies from time to time. Giving and taking frequent feedback also help me in improving my teaching.
He believes that Teachmint is not only an online teaching platform but also a bridge that fills the gap between the students and teachers during the online learning process. He also says that he would love to continue teaching on Teachmint and help his students in building a better tomorrow.
We appreciate the trust Vivekanand Sir has invested in us, and we are extremely proud to be a part of his teaching journey. We wish him all the best for his future.
