  • Address at HETC 2015 (I am the Teacher)

    Changing the system can not be a mission for the teacher, however, the 'counterparts' from the industry and the education management can try this. It has been a mission for the business world to get 'products' from academia but they have not been able to support the learning vision.

  • How to Write Impressive Paragraphs

    We learn the alphabet of a language and move towards making words and phrases. This leads us to understand that our thoughts are expressed via sentences. The first understanding that we should get is that A Sentence is the Expression of a Complete Thought.

  • Teachers are the Superheroes!

    It is wonderful to see the sun rising over us; over everything that exists tall in itself but falls short when the giant comes shining.
