Instructor Biography

Er. Malaya Biswal, Instructor,Wireless Telecom professional & Mathematics Lover

Hello there, my name is Malaya Biswal. I focus on explaining difficult concepts in the simplest form possible. I don’t like jargon and superficial concepts rather I prefer layman terminology and fundamental clarity.  

By profession I am a Wireless Telecom Engineer and by passion an instructor. I started helping out my friends with the concepts they are not familiar about and within very less time, I need to maintain a schedule to attend all requests. I realized that I am getting more interest, knowledge and more over I feel contented after each session. That’s the moment, I got my passion!!!

I have been teaching from last 9 years (face-to-face and online tutoring mode). My students include 5 years kids, school going children and engineers.

I loves Mathematics, wireless telecom technologies, on-line tutoring and all related things. In my opinion as long as you do not enjoy learning a subject/topic you can’t master the related skills. Hence my approach is to learn new things, experiment on it, get to fundamentals and then explain it in layman’s terminology.

So join me on Udemy to learn diverse skills in a unique and simplified way!!!
