But you can distributes it to everyone like a teacher who acquire knowledge to teaches the students. Here is the real value of the teachers for formation of the students life. I have discussed in the essay about my best teacher and his contribution to make me successful.

An essay on my best Professor

Teachers are considered as our guides throughout our life. In school teachers are expected to prepare us for life outside school and in college while in college teachers are considered to prepare us for the competitive world. Many teachers have successfully helped their students whereas some are restricted to the academics of their students which is also fine. We come across many teachers throughout our life. Some in school life, while others in college and so on. Some teachers are just a part of our journey who help us in the journey while certain teachers become a part of our journey. These are the teachers who have given us the greatest lesson on life and continue to do so. I have been lucky to have a couple of teachers who have had a great influence on me and their words and thoughts still are a great influence in my life.

After completing my schooling, I decided to start college in the city of Kolkata. It was one of the most renowned colleges of my time for commerce in the city. I was fairly a good student, very much inclined towards academics therefore I attend my college and classes regularly. For personal reasons, I also started giving tuition classes during my college life to earn extra. It was indeed hectic to give tuition early in the morning and then rush to the college for my classes. Many students used to take coaching classes during that time to prepare for competitive exams as well for college studies. However I wasn't able to arrange my time for more coaching classes, so I depended fully on whatever I learnt in college. Therefore, when I couldn't grasp something in class, I went after the professor in his staff room. He was shocked to see me but helped me. He proceeded to ask me whether I take any coaching and I said no. It was then when he said that I can visit him after classes whenever I have doubts and he would clear it for me, for any subject. To say I was grateful would be an understatement. All my college life, I would visit him after my classes and he would gladly solve my doubts and help me move forward. He was not just a teacher but also a guide. He helped me frame my career and decide which lane I should move to. He inspired me to not give up even when I became tired of my hectic life. He made me love the subject of my honours even more. All my college life I was dependent on him for my doubts and queries and he never hesitated to help me out, he was, in fact, glad and often applauded me for my hard work, which made my self-esteem grow. Even after my college was completed and I was preparing for competitive exams, I would ask him for help and he would willingly help me without anything in return except for my success.

I would be forever grateful to him, for his faith in me along with all the extra hours he would spend on me. He was truly an inspiration. A great teacher and even a greater human being. He was Dr Basu.

These types of teachers are very rare. Helping a student whenever he comes with some problems or doubts in his mind about a particular subject is a great trait that very few teachers have. The teacher mentioned in this particular article seems to be a very kind person having concern for his students and not wanting anything in return for his advice and guidance. They are actually role models for others. In today's selfish and materialistic world, if a teacher gives free of charge teaching and guidance to his students should be applauded by the parents and other people who come to know about this fact. Such teachers deserve very high respect from their disciples and earn a very good reputation in society.
