I believe if in the world there is one skill that gets augmented on its dissemination, then it’s undoubtedly teaching. The more you teach, the more you learn. If given a chance, I would love to teach Biology to people. This subject has always been one of my favourite topics to present on and all through my student life, I used to be a top scorer in this subject. I am so inclined towards it that I chose the discipline of Biology in my university as well.
When you are interested in doing something and get engrossed in it thoroughly, you choose different methods to make it even more riveting. I found various ways to make the topics of this subject interesting from a student’s perspective, which makes it an exciting field of study for me. Drawing analogies to real-life situations makes a topic entrancing and stays in my mind for a long time. Hence, I believe that I can teach this subject to its fullest potential to students. I would choose online classes to conduct the teaching as I usually get busy with other activities on a daily basis.
I believe comprehending Biology is vital for everyone irrespective of one’s profession. Knowing our body, anatomy, and morphology is vital to know its structure better. Apart from that, it is crucial to learn about the physiology of our organ system. However, it may not be required to learn about in utmost detail, yet skilled knowledge of how our body functions is essential. Also, learning or teaching biology is a skilled subset to have a clear perspective of how we evolved as organisms or the characteristics of various plants and animals that we encounter in our everyday lives.
Eg.: The burden over him augmented years after he took loans from people.

Part 3 Questions
Should teachers be funny when they teach?
I believe learning becomes incredibly entrancing when it is associated with a tinge of humour and hence, I believe that teachers shouldn’t be monotonous in their way of teaching and should rather keep the class engaged by adding some humour and fun elements in the class.
What qualities should teachers have?
A teacher should have a decent grasp of his/her language skills. They should be able to explicate the most difficult concepts in the easiest way possible. Teachers should be able to understand the psychological attributes of their students and analyse their whereabouts and their learning abilities. Most importantly, teachers should be humble and understanding.
Which do you think are more important: practical skills or academic skills?
Well, practical and academic skills are equally important and work as an accomplice of each other. One can’t perform practicals without having a concrete basis of theory. At the same time, solely relying upon theories wouldn’t help create a robust foundation for learning a subject. In other words, you cannot excel in practical aspects without understanding the basics of a subject and you can’t perform in real life without having a practical knowledge of a domain. Therefore, both of them are indispensable to great learning.
Which age group is the best age for learning?
I believe the best age group that learns faster than others is between 5-8 years. Kids are often considered fast learners because they are pretty novice to everything and hence can learn the most as they do not have any prior information on a particular topic. Plus, their receptive mind is most effective during this age and what we learn during this period of time stays with us all our lives.
Eg.: The final twist made the movie entrancing towards the end.
Eg.: The initial phase of the documentary was quite monotonous.
Eg.: Attributes of a good human being are not limited to a certain set of qualities.
Meaning: having or exhibiting strength
Eg.: The building is too robust to be ravaged.
Eg.: I was very naive and novice to the field of computer science when I decided to enter this domain.
