Model Answer:
Teachers generally tend to have a great influence on our education and help us grow as a person at the later stage of our life. Thank you for this great cue card topic as it will allow me to talk about a teacher who I have always admired and always will.

The person here, I am talking about, was my university teacher who used to teach business finance. Now, business finance, by no means, is an easy subject to learn, and it becomes even more so when you are learning advance level business finance. In fact, the level of complexity of the actual math, associated with this business finance and finance theory, as well as the business finance disciplines like taxation, accounting, treasury and foreign exchange are some of the mind-blowing stuff that a student would ever like to face.

At least, I didn’t want to face it, but since it was a compulsory subject for a business student, I had no other choice but to face the challenge. But, luckily, this great business finance teacher of mine made it look so easy for me. From the way, this teacher used to teach the subject, one sure could tell that he knew business finance from inside out, even though, he couldn’t exactly be considered as a senior teacher both in terms of his age or level of teaching experience. But, what was so special about him was that he had an immense level of patience with his students when it came to making average students like us feel like some “top class” students. In other words, he knew too well how to get the best out of a student with his wits and teaching styles.

Anyway, this teacher had influenced me so much, mainly because he taught me how to remain confident and positive even when things look too bleak for us. Besides, it is this great teacher who told me that it was not necessary to be among the best in order to become a successful person in life.
