The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires – William Arthur Ward
The great teacher in my life who has inspired me is Professor Nilesh Vedant. His mastery over the subject is amazing. This would easily be evident looking at the amount of accolades that he has garnered over the years. So instead of mentioning that, I take this opportunity to say some things that are a little less intuitive.
I was in class IX when I first got the opportunity to learn under him. That was a difficult time for me since I was still getting to grips with the four years of struggle that lay ahead. Coming from a state board background, the curriculum then was no way as comprehensive as the CBSE and ICSE syllabus, mastery over which is very essential for clearing any competitive exam like JEE or BITSAT. If I strived hard, he strived harder but he made sure that I got my fundamentals extremely clear on which I could then build upon later. I would say that he has been more of a mentor to me; along with teaching the subject he also motivated me to study hard and work to a schedule. I tried my best to stick to a schedule but my doubts in the subject never did. I used to disturb him with doubts at unusual hours but he never once failed to answer even a petty question and neither did he flinch on seeing tough ones. This speaks a great volume about his depth of knowledge and the confidence he has in relaying it to the students.
Over the past few years due to such cut-throat competition, the teaching profession has become more of a business where least amount of thought is put into imparting quality education; but with Nilesh sir and his group of tutors you can rest assured that it will never be the case. Teachers with such set of values who have a strong conscience to work for the betterment and upliftment of students are extremely rare now and placing your trust in Nilesh Sir and his classes will definitely be fruitful for a budding student to fulfil his/her dreams.
