I am a working professional who is committed to student success inside of the classroom and in life. Alongside, I am teacher inspired to enhance professional learning through teacher story-telling and classroom experiences.

My Goal ??

Many students aspiring to become a FRM charter-holder, not only pay heavy fees for exam registration, but also need to pay excessive fees for their training classes. Thus, considering their ambitions, and helping them in the best way possible, I wish to create a quantitatively and qualitatively apt training program, which would allow students and other working professionals to memorize and comprehend concepts easily and clear the certifications in their first go.
