Teach: out of Reach
Dec 4, 2018-
I recently joined Bachelors in Micro Biology at a reputed college in Kathmandu. The college is really good and I love most of the things here. But I have a problem with one of my biology teachers who doesn’t seem to know anything he is teaching. He command over the English language is poor and his knowledge about the subject matter is also very limited. Once, while he was teaching about bacteria, he was giving examples about viruses. Everything he teaches in class doesn’t make any sense. We informed the college administration but as he is a very senior teacher, they said they can’t do anything about it. I really don’t want to spend my next few years attending classes for nothing. Can you please suggest what should I do?
We don’t have the best education institutes and sadly, we lack the best teachers. In your situation, you have already played a vital role as a student who is concerned about their studies. It’s a shame that anything couldn’t be done by the college but you have already given your best to make some changes. Now, it’s time to make the best out of yourself with whatever you have in your hands. You’ve already enrolled yourself
for a degree, so you have to try to make the best out of it, even if it requires you to work hard as
twice as you had imagined. Although your teacher isn’t the best communicator when it comes to English, I’m sure he must be fluent when he speaks Nepali. Study on your own, research, and try to make the most out of your textbooks and the internet. And as for your teacher, use his knowledge to get answers to the confusions that you encounter while you read on your own. This will not only solve your problem but will also strengthen your knowledge.
