Hello Abhijeet, The thing I liked most about you is your self evaluation. Please note, certain jobs like Media specifically requires a bold personality, but any kind of a back end job or desk job would require a pleasing personality to succeed. Never the less, I would suggest, go in for a personality development course, a short term and get over certain traits. Because, any industry you join, to move up the career ladder, you need to be an extrovert and interaction is a must. So do not choose  a career based on your personality trait as of now.  Choose a career, and please understand

Dear Home Maker, I think taking tuitions or joining a coaching class is suitable to you. This will give you freedom, space and time for yourself and family too as well keep you engaged in some work for a good cause. Your MEd qualification can be put to best use.

Dear Neetu, The process to being a teacher whether in private or government school remains the same. After Graduation any stream, you need to clear B.Ed a 3 years course, mainly a full time course is preferred.

As a word of caution, I would suggest, apply to private and international schools. The advantage of international schools is that, they have their own curriculum and train teachers according to their needs and one is promoted as main teacher within few years
