Jit Sharma – TheGpTutor

Significant Moments

  • I was there when the Berlin Wall fell, and interacted with a changed Germany.
  • Experiencing the 1st anniversary of the intifadah in Israel, I saw first hand Arab-Israeli life under severe austerity.
  • Fate brought me to the exact day that Princess Diana died in London. I witnessed a nation mourn.
  • I witnessed the dramatic post-Yeltsin Russia for 6 months. Glasnost and perestroika were not what it seemed.
  • I witnessed apartheid in South Africa, or should I say the lack of it.
  • I was in Mumbai, India, on the first anniversary of 26/11 attacks. “Never Again!” the city cried.
  • Interviewed 3 times on TV for issues on social and current affairs.

These experiences have given me a perspective which very few people have. I deliver these perspectives to students and teach them how to analyse and be critical.

I have learned quite a bit from Mr.Jit in a short span of 2 weeks and I can already see changes in how I write and approach the compre paper. Your effort and teaching style makes the tuition value for money. Its a little ex, but you are a pro, even more so than my teachers in school. Thanks Mr.Jit. I did good for my promo's.

Your patience and warmth is fabulous. My son can be stubborn at times, yet you always managed to get him engaged in learning. He now engages us with his GP work and we are learning at the same time.
