Tax teacher Nitin feeling humble following ‘Lecturer of the Year’ PQ Magazine award success
A tax and accountancy tutor at BPP Professional Education says winning a 2017 PQ Magazine Award is the “pinnacle” of his career.
Nitin Rabheru, 43, was awarded ‘Lecturer of the Year’ for the private sector at February’s winners’ ceremony, held in London.
Admitting to feeling shocked to even be nominated, Nitin was completely overwhelmed to find out he was the eventual winner in a highly-competitive shortlist of top private sector lecturers from across the UK.
“I was in an amazing category, so to win was just out of this world,” said humble Nitin, who teaches via BPP’s online classroom.
“As a tutor, the best reward is always seeing your students succeed and pass their exams. But it also feels fantastic to be appreciated and acknowledged for all the effort that goes on behind the scenes in helping students realise their dreams.”
“I’ve had some truly heart-warming responses to my award success from family and friends.”
Nitin, who lives in Guildford, is no stranger to winning awards either having received BPP’s ‘Tutor of the Year’ accolade in 2012.
Celebrating 16 years teaching at BPP, he added: “My workplace gives tutors like myself the opportunity to be my own person and share that passion for the subjects I teach. This award is as much for my amazing bosses as it is for me.
“On a personal level, this award is the pinnacle of my career.”
