Never be contented with the knowledge you have. There is always a scope to know better, to learn better. Polish your skills. Go out of your comfort zone.

Pinky Tripathi

We have heard many stories of Valmiki and other gurus in Pouranik Katha when Guru used to be considered the most respected person. But in today’s time, it has reduced to nicknames and mimicry of teachers.

Founder of a School for Underprivileged Kids

Fortunately, younger generations have wonderful teachers like Pinky Tripathi who opened a school with her mother called Mother Teresa School for underprivileged kids in Lokhandwala. Currently, there are 400 students who are getting education.

Her Journey as a Teacher

She always wanted to be a teacher despite of belonging to the family of lawyers and teachers. It wasn’t easy for her to persuade her family to let her pursue her dream of becoming a teacher. It always had been a roller coaster ride for her but she never gave up.

She currently takes workshops in various schools and also had been a HOD of English department of Thakur Vidya Mandir for ten years. What was special about her that distinguished her from other teachers is her way of teaching. She shares how her math teacher made her fall in love with the subject she hated the most. That year she scored highest marks and gave her insight that it is in the hands of a teacher to make a child fall in love with her subject.

Free English Classes for Everyone

For a year, she used to give free classes as her mission was to give knowledge. She says: “My whole house used to be full with kids, and I used to enjoy teaching.”

Pinky Private Tutorial Classes

After a year, someone suggested her to open her own coaching classes “Pinky Private Tutorial Classes” which is now in Mumbai (Borivali, Kandivali, and Malad). She is a successful woman but she is never satisfied with her knowledge. She had been to Thaliand and London to learn more and came back as an inspiring woman who loves to teach not in a monotonous way but to engage her students who generally forget to look at clock in her classes.

I use music in my class and other various ways to break the monotony. I always try to be a mother, sister, friend to my students so that I could help them in becoming a better human too.”

Undoubtedly, she is a wonderful and inspiring woman who is teaching underprivileged kids since a decade and runs her own classes effectively. She has written two books on grammar which are listed in best selling books. She has been awarded umpteenth of times for her contribution in education field. Recently, she was honored as “The Rising Star of India.”
