Being a Business Studies teacher at the Impaq Online School is not just a profession; it’s a commitment to shaping young minds for the dynamic and ever-evolving world of commerce. As I reflect on my journey as an online Business Studies teacher, I am overwhelmed with gratitude at the opportunity to inspire learners with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in the business world.

Teaching from experience

Being raised in a family who runs their own business exposed me to entrepreneurship from an early age. I witnessed first-hand the day-to-day operations, decision-making processes, and challenges involved in running a business. I am so blessed to have this exposure and to teach my learners from first-hand experience.

Igniting a passion for entrepreneurship

Teaching Business Studies goes beyond textbooks and theory. It’s about igniting my learners’ passion for entrepreneurship, finance, marketing, and management. I strive to create an engaging learning environment, incorporating real-world case studies and interactive discussions from the business community. Witnessing the spark of curiosity and the development of critical thinking skills among my learners is truly rewarding.
