Our very own founders Ashiqur and Asim Rahman got interviewed on BitGog and BetterOuds! Don’t miss out on the interviews!
Today, we are interviewing Ashiqur Rahman, co-founder of Uplift Future Academics.
Uplift Future Academics aims to facilitate the learning process and make education more accessible to everyone, committed to providing quality tutoring services.
For those who do not know you, please tell us about yourself.
I have been teaching for over a decade. I have studied Chemical Engineering and have also had an avid interest in Programming. I like teaching, as it gives me a sense of accomplishment when I see the students prosper in their academics. This interest of mine brought up Uplift Future Academics, where we provide the best tutoring services in Atlanta, Georgia.
Let us know about your passion, and why did you choose this field?
I have always been a fan of science and technology and therefore stuck to STEM-related classes. I find Engineering and Technology to be the most essential aspect of today’s innovation.
Great, What has been one of the most exciting achievements of your career so far?
My most exciting achievement was seeing 4 of the students going to Ivy League school who I have taught for over 6 years. The joy and accomplishment I felt seeing them getting approved were incredible.
What’s the most significant factor that has helped you be successful?
I genuinely believe that perseverance and hard work can help you reach your goals. The definition of being successful is having these 2 sets of qualities. Going through failure is just one step closer to success, and possessing these 2 qualities can always help you get to the shore.
What are your success habits?
I believe in hard work, and my motto is to keep working until you get what you desire. I have found myself being able to accomplish far fetched goals by working tirelessly and staying positive.
What mistakes have you made along the way?
Life is filled with errors, and mine isn’t any different. I have made bad decisions in the past, and some of them cost me somewhat, but nothing has been too substantial to make me stop trying and persevering.
What does your typical day look like?
I usually wake up to reading blogs of my interest, followed by working on things that require my attention. I love teaching, and thinking about creating a better future for kids of our generation is what I delve into often. Besides the fun stuff, it’s usually all typical.
Tell us a little bit about Uplift Future Academics.
Uplift Future Academics is an establishment built from a pure enthusiasm for building a better future for tomorrow. My friend [Asim Rahman] and I have always found the education system in America lacking fundamentals in Math and Science. We decided to open our Academy to help the students in America develop a better understanding of STEM and overall in Academics. Our goal is to make sure all aspiring students get the correct guideline and support they deserve and need to build a better and safer future.
Can you tell us a little bit about the SAT and how to prepare for it?
There is no hard rule with which you can prepare for this exam. The preparation needs to be tailored according to one’s strengths and weaknesses. It is crucial to identify what an individual student is missing and prepare guidelines for quick recovery. A student needs a mentor and a teacher for proper guidance and overall a well-rounded prep program.
Should students take the SAT or ACT for college admission?
The answer to that depends on the strengths and weaknesses of the student. ACT is designed differently with sections involving English, Maths, and Science. The time frame and the questions are very different from the SAT exam. It’s vital to attempt Mock exams in both test types and prepare for the one that suits his/her style well. However, the SAT is more approved amongst the universities in the USA so, it would be safer to take the SAT before ACT.
What is your thought on Homeschool and how students should engage in classes online?
This is a great question. I have always felt like Homeschool is beneficial if regulated and monitored properly. It could be overwhelming for the parents, as so many Homeschool programs and different teaching types are offered. Still, there is no superior way to teach than traditional methods. The student needs to be monitored, and the progress sheet needs to be updated every week. With proper guidelines and support, Homeschool could be the best way of teaching in today’s time.
What makes your Academy different from others?
At Uplift Future Academics, we have nothing but the most accomplished tutors from all over the USA. We select our tutors via a rigorous and intensive filtering process to ensure we provide nothing but the best for our children. We tutor more than 100 courses ranging from Kindergarten to all the way to College Level courses. We also provide the best rate for our students since we believe that education should be affordable and accessible to everyone. Our goal is to create a world filled with talents to ensure a better future.
