Tushar began his work in education with the Teach For India Fellowship (TFI), where he spent two years teaching in an underserved school. He then spent two years as a manager and teacher coach. After that, Tushar moved into social impact and public sector consulting roles. He joined the International Innovation Corps (U. Chicago) which works with governments to solve complex challenges in India’s public sector.
