Before joining the T4N Pinnacle Academy as its head of school, Aryan already had collected a vast amount of expertise in the education realm. Aryan began his pedagogy work in a British primary school (American equiv. - elementary school), where he engaged students through a sequence of term-long interactive science lessons. Aryan's science classes soon became a roaring success, with the number of students coming to his lessons constantly on the rise. It was Aryan's experience with teaching in primary school that led him to become fascinated with education and teaching.
Aryan soon began teaching in virtual environments to students in elementary school in subjects inclusive of science and world history. Founding the T4N Pinnacle Academy, Aryan decided to focus on providing a high-quality education to children globally, a mission which Aryan has helped accomplished with much success. Aryan quickly turned his attention toward the creation of engaging yet individually-paced classes, a format which would allow for the seemingly effortless proliferation of excellently-designed curricula around the world.
