Sample Answer 2

Describe a skill that you can teach other people


In this contemporary epoch having specialisation in a skill can do wonders for you. It could open a plethora of opportunities for you. I have expert knowledge of a skill that I could teach others.

What is it? How did you learn it?

The skill is driving, and I learnt it from my father. My family is full of travelling enthusiasts. We have this uncanny knack for going to offbeat places. And on numerous occasions, we have travelled more than 1,000 miles in a day.

During these trips, I used to watch my father driving from very close. Gradually, I had learnt the basics of driving, and seeing my interest in driving, my father handed over the steering to me.

Now, whenever my family goes on a trip, I drive the car.

How can you teach others this skill?

My father specially designed a car to teach me to drive. I can use that car to teach others.

How do you feel about this skill?

In my opinion, driving is an important skill to learn. Without it, you are at the mercy of others for going from one place to another.

It helps you in many ways. First of all, you save time and money because you need not wait for a cab or bus to reach your destination. Moreover, you can save commuting time because you can plan your journey as per your wish.

Since I can drive with tremendous ease on not only plains but also hills, I believe that I have the potential to become a renowned driving instructor.

I cherish using computers as and when I get the opportunity because I enjoy coming in contact with divergent things about the computers while using them. Moreover, becoming an expert at repairing a computer, is a much sought after skill these days.

What Is It? How Did You Learn It?

With determination, dedication and discipline, I have learned how to repair a computer. Initially, I used to fix hardware issues, however now I can tackle software issues too.

Although, I haven’t acquired the ability to take care of all types of computer problems like a professional. I try my hand at various procedures and techniques until I reach the solution, whether it is about any issue related to network connectivity, speed, RAM etcetera.

There are umpteen issues with the computer that it is a herculean task to make a list of all. It is a daunting task to become an expert at it. To achieve proficiency in this skill, I need to go beyond the conventional domain to carve out a niche for myself.

How Do You Feel About This Skill And How Can You Teach Others This Skill?

In this era of digitalisation providing, skills-based training to others is an easy task. I will give both online and offline classes to impart knowledge.

Online classes will be for those who can not come to the institute due to a shortage of time or any other reason.

I feel that that imparting knowledge of computers would make me a better version of myself.
