Concepts and fundamentals are the foundations of learning. To understand and master a subject, one has to know its fundamentals. Having spent about 40 years in teaching and training, that is my mantra and that is what I preach to my students. In fact, the reason I have done fairly well in academics and have seen other do well, is primarily because of our penchant for learning the fundamentals.
I did my schooling and undergraduate studies in India and got admitted to Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), a prestigious engineering school. Admission to IIT is extremely difficult. Only the top 1 - 2 percent of the applicants are admitted. After completing my undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering, I came to the U.S. for my Graduate studies. To get admitted to graduate schools in US, with tuition waiver and monetary assistantship, one has to score above 90 percentiles in GRE. I did my graduate studies in mechanical engineering at University of Miami. I was a teaching assistant while doing my masters and taught engineering, physics, and math courses to the undergraduate students. In addition to teaching, I was involved in setting up exams and grading them.
Later on, I continued teaching high school students, college students, and trained colleagues and customers in companies where I worked. I also pursued my MBA at Carnegie Mellon's Tepper Business School, having scored pretty high on the GMAT. During my MBA I wrote a business plan as a part of the entrepreneurship course, for which I was awarded Manufacturing Entrepreneur of the Year. I formed FurnXpert, the engineering software company to implement the award-winning plan.
Not only I have been able to excel in academics, but I have also helped many students achieve academic successes, imparting in them my life long experience. Teaching is my passion.
