I believe in trusting the inner potentialities of individual students whatever the context is. I deeply feel everyone can solve any problem by themselves if we, the mentors can switch on the trigger effectively with correct information, appropriate teaching methods & empathy. My approach to private tuition always starts with an initial meet up, understanding the need and perspective of the student (or the guardian) on the need, assess deadline and timeline before formal start with the structured plan to help the student. I try to create interest by engaging students in creative thinking on the issue & I like to ensure that the students are also enjoying this learning process. I consider myself as a passionate story teller to visualize the learning content as a story in front of the students so that they can remember the basic concept and implement where needed. Exam is equally important to me & I focus on exam-oriented preparation to achieve the best grade within the limit of the students.
I have a medical background with one year of clinical training, a master’s in Public Health-Epidemiology with highest academic excellence recognition from the President of Government Republic of Bangladesh being the first public health student of the university, a diploma in disaster management and vulnerability studies with highest CGPA, a certification in diabetology, an exciting mentoring experience to undergraduate medical students, 1 year of university teaching fellow placement followed by post graduate teaching experience in masters level and intensive research experience in low-middle income country context by working with the leading research institute of South East Asia- icddr,b (International Centre for Diarrheal Diseases Research, Bangladesh). I provided substantial academic support to complete dissertations to many of my undergraduate & post graduate students. I am involved as a volunteer in mentoring undergraduate medical students of University of London specifically in mental health studies and at the same time I am academically engaged in research with renowned faculties around the UK as the student liaison officer of the Centre for Global Mental Health. I love to give personal touch in my teaching approach to reach to the student’s mind to bring the best out of them.
