About Yashpreet

Teaching is my passion because it connects me with books, academicians and learners – major stalwarts in the realm of knowledge and evolution. I have always wanted to be a part of this evolution by contributing in the up-gradation of society as a teacher. So far, I have served as an Assistant Professor of English at Hindu Girls College, Jagadhri, India (2013-2016), Assistant Professor of English at Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra, India (2011-2013) and as a Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant (Hindi) at University of Pennsylvania (2009-2010). I have almost five years experience of teaching English at university level and college level.

I believe that the circle of learning never comes to an end, so, for me, teaching is a medium to reflect about my own knowledge and capacity by helping my students to overcome their weaknesses. I act in a prompt and organized manner, fulfilling my responsibilities and presenting myself in a professional manner in all settings. I develop and nurture positive relationships with students and peers.
I offer my full support, knowledge and time to my students. They deserve the best and that is what I strive to bring to every class.

I completed my PhD from Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra, India in 2012. My thesis was entitled “Edward Albee’s Concept of ‘Life-Lies’: A Psycho-analytical Study”. I qualified All-India National Eligibility Test for Lecturer in English in 2008. I completed my Masters in English from Guru Nanak Khalsa College, Yamuna Nagar, India in 2007, and Bachelors (Honors) from Guru Nanak Girls College, Yamuna Nagar, India in 2005.

I communicate to my students that I have been where they are and my primary goal is to help them in better acquisition of the target language and subject. I reassure my students that learning is a beautiful process which leads to enlightenment. They have to work to attain knowledge as everything worthwhile demands hard work. The more they will work to attain knowledge the easier and more natural it will be attained.

I would be glad to help my students attain academically what they covet.
