13 years ago, I came to the USA to do my PhD with full scholarship. Then I served as a faculty in two American Universities. I dedicated my whole professional life to popularize American scholarship in Bangladesh. Now let me help you to make your dream come true. Schedule a free 30-minute session with me.

To me, nothing is more exciting than standing with a marker between a whiteboard and knowledge-thirsty pupils. All the a-ha and ha-ha expressions are the best reward that I have treasured in my 20-years of teaching life. I taught 8 years in two universities in the USA; the rest of the time includes all sorts of semi-formal, private and unconventional virtual teaching. The phrase that best portrays me is perhaps a humble teacher who never stops learning.
My joyful journey of teaching began in 2000 when I was a freshman at my pharmacy school in Dhaka University, Bangladesh. I used to teach chemistry at a local coaching center in Mirpur named Charupath. I still ruminate the nimble nervous entry to my first lecture to teach chemical kinetics to grade 9 kids. On that very day I whispered to myself: this is the career I belong to.
Today, I work for the state government as an eLearning developer, which is a very specialized form of teaching.
I had a brief career in pharmaceutical marketing in Bangladesh, and then I moved to Primeasia University to teach pharmacy. Many of my students are successful professionals and scholars worldwide.
Appalachian College of Pharmacy is where I started my teaching career in October, 2013. I was a fresh PhD at that time and most of my responsibility included establishing research in the lab and teaching PharmD students. After serving about 7 years, I moved to a newly established university in Miami, FL, named Larkin University.
When I was a university freshman in Bangladesh, I received a full free scholarship for a three-year Diploma on Information Technology. It was generously given away from an IT company from India named “El Net 3-L Academy”. This program opened a new horizon of knowledge to me, and I got my first exposure to web development and digital learning. I was greatly stirred by software such as Macromedia (later purchased by Adobe) Dreamweaver and Flash. Flash is now called Adobe Animate. I used my first animation using Macromedia Flash to demonstrate simple Voltaic cell to my students in my chemistry class in Charupath (read my teaching page to learn more). I started my teaching career quite early and gained financial independence when I was an undergrad sophomore. I become the first person to own a laptop in my class.
What I displayed on my laptop in the chemistry class about 18 years ago is now called “electronic learning” or eLearning. My deep passion for technology-based teaching was the driving force to settle on the eLearning career in 2021.
I founded GREC (former GRE Center) in 2008, and since then I have been providing training to my employees in Bangladesh through various forms of eLearning. The first eLearning authoring tool I learned is Adobe Captivate. I became a Certified Adobe Captivate Specialist in 2018. Below is a picture with Dr. Puja Jaysing, who is the most popular eLearning trainer in Adobe. The photo was captured when I met her in Washington, DC in April of 2018.
Since my early student life, I have formed and led many organizations. I was one of the founding members of a regional debating club in Faridpur. I formed the first student chapter of International Pharmaceutical Students’ Federation (IPSF) in Bangladesh and conducted various seminars to recruit students. I continued the same during my professional career in the USA.
I formed the first and only compounding club among the pharmacy schools in the USA. I took our students to various competitions in different years. Here is a group of students who attended a compounding competition in Florida.
