Hello Sir, I am a 35 yr BE(CSE) Male working in Bangalore with 12.5 yrs experience in Embedded systems domain with not bad salary. I want to switch to my passion which is teaching in a non technical field. Based on my interest, I have come with below options. 1) A computer science / Maths teacher with BEd degree. Do I also require Bsc / Msc course for this ? If so, can I pursue via distance education mode ? 2) A Professor in a BEd College - I am aware that we need BEd, MEd, Phd. Assume I am doing them, do they even welcome a 45 yr fresher for that ? Is work experience as a teacher in schools required for those posts ? 3) A CAT quants coach - with good interest in maths, I want to know what are the institutes / coaching centres looking in such candidates. I have 3-5 years in hand before making switch. Kindly advise what are the efforts, how I may need to prepare for this change.

Ans: I consider the Embedded systems is meant for geniuses like you. The ESD industry is booming and will continue to grow with the emergence of EVs and all the appliances and devices getting built in India. I would encourage you to talk to a few Engineering Colleges in Bengaluru an see if you can deliver a few guest lectures. Once you gain confidence and success, consider running a full semester. This looks like the best of both worlds--that give you the job satisfaction and good salary from your ESDM job For industry professionals BEd etc are not needed. All the best.

Ans: It's great to hear that you're passionate about pursuing a teaching career, especially with your diverse background and experience.

You may consider some of the steps below:

1. If you are interested in teaching in school or coaching institutes, find out the ones near your place and send resumes to all of them.

2. Find if any of your contacts are in this field and leverage them

3. Make some youtube videos on different topics and assess your performance

4. Start making your study material

5. Nothing in too small. Start with whatever you can, and, if you continue with sincerity, it will definitely grow.

6. If your brochures didn't yield any response, consider revisiting your marketing strategy. You could try targeting specific neighborhoods, using online advertising, or collaborating with local newspapers or magazines to promote your teaching services.

7. Stay updated on teaching methodologies, educational technology, and the latest trends in education. This will help you adapt your teaching methods and stay relevant.

Remember that building a teaching career takes time, persistence, and adaptability. While it might be challenging initially, your passion and determination can lead you to success in this new endeavor. Good luck on your teaching journey!
