X
Xaver

Perfect! I am 63 years old and wanted to improve my basic knowledge of English. I wanted to communicate well in English for my future travels. The focus of success I think, lies in Conversation with a minimum of Grammar. With Shama I found an English teacher who will help me in a natural way and with a lot of joy to reach this goal. Shama lets me talk freely about various topics but always brings me back to the starting point. We also form sentences and discuss the necessary grammar. It is always fun to learn together with Shama. I would recommend Shama to anyone interested in learning English.

Shama's response

Mr Fuhrer is a very considerate person and a keen student. He is very meticulous, keeps notes and comes fully prepared for every class. He is on time and is a joy to work with. I enjoy taking classes for him.

Review from Shama

QUESTION 01 | 06
Tell us more about your subject. How did you develop an interest in this field?
Shama — I teach all the four skills of English learning to candidates who would like to study or work abroad thereby enabling them to clear the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). I work with small groups of students (not more than 4/5) from all across the globe and I have taught for over 20 years . I also take individual classes, if there is a need. I have taught technical subjects, Management Subjects, Business Communication and English as well as Education and Training to teachers as well. I simply enjoy teaching and making a difference.
QUESTION 02 | 06
What or who is the motivation behind you choosing to teach & why?
Shama — I decided to pursue my love for English reading and writing and completed my Master trainer course for IELTS in British Council. This helps me to cater to students from vernacular medium with aspirations and goals to work/study abroad, aiding them to achieve their goals as the classes are tailor-made to suit every individuals needs.
QUESTION 03 | 06
How does your work help society?
Shama — I give my all, to the work I do. I know I make a difference in the lives of my students helping them capture and realize their dreams. I also teach some young graduates communication and interview skills to help them do interviews well, so that they may land good jobs. My students come to me for advice and direction even after their course of study.
QUESTION 04 | 06
If you had to think of a role model for your work, who do you think of & why?
Shama — My mother. She was a selfless teacher herself and I do come from a family of teachers. My grandparents were teachers who were recipients of National awards, my sisters are also teachers, and even though I have done various things in my lifetime, I basically am a teacher. I remember my mom catering to all types of students from both intellectually and economically varied strata... She made a difference in the lives of many, and I know this noble profession gives a satisfaction that is unparalleled.
QUESTION 05 | 06
Tell us about your hobbies outside teaching.
Shama — Well, I am basically adventurous and am a true sports enthusiast. I have done many things in my life, climbed mountains, participated in National level sports meets, trekked, hiked, cycled, swum, lead teams, parades, managed prestigious projects, worked in MNCs, served the nation, lead an NGO and completely managed the building of two houses. So, I like taking on challenging roles and bringing in success.
QUESTION 06 | 06
Do you have an anecdote to tell us about your student or professional life?
Shama — I took on a spoken English student who was intelligent but hailed from a family which did not speak English. He wanted to improve his Spoken English skills to aid him to do well in his job as a Medical Representative. He had studied in one of the smaller towns in the local language and even though he knew English, made a lot of mistakes. He joined in a small group, but as time progressed the interest that this student showed, made me take separate classes for him. He learnt, applied it and very soon, was giving speeches in his company meetings. The jewel in the crown was the fact that soon after completing his course with me, he got a much better job in an MNC with a 30% hike to his salary. Knowing that he comes from a small village, where his father is a vessel polisher and having in a small way aided this student to be the first in his family to work for an MNC is truly satisfying. I am sure, he will lead the way for many others in his family and village to move ahead in life... Yes, teachers create ripples that multiply and spread...
