Mohammed Hassan Ali is not your ordinary schoolkid. The 11-year-old found himself in the media spotlight last week when it was revealed that he was teaching BTech and MTech students in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh. India Today reports that the Class 7 students doesn’t even charge any fees for his services and that he aims to teach a 1000 engineers by 2020.

“I have been doing this since last year. I go to school in the morning and I come back home by 3 pm. I play and do my homework. By 6 pm, I’m ready to go to the teaching institute to share lessons with civil, mechanical and electronics students,” Ali told ANI about his job at the coaching institute.

How did Ali learn so much? By using the internet. The 11-year-old stated that he has used the internet to learn enough to be able to take classes.

“I was watching a video on the internet about Indians doing odd jobs in foreign countries even after studying. That is when it struck me that what is it our engineers lack? I realised it is primarily technical and communication skills that they are not well aware of. Since my area of interest is designing, I started learning and teaching the same,” Ali said, according to India Today.
