who was alexendar grahm bell ? how was he as teacher?

Dear student,

Dr, Alexander Graham Bell was a great scientist with many great inventions to his name. Helen was impressed with Dr Graham Bell. She felt that the scientific ability was dwarfed by his human goodness as he spent a lot of time with the deaf children. She also appreciated his efforts at making life easier for the deaf children.  Helen felt the tenderness and sympathy in Dr. Bell's behaviour, which touched her tender heart.  He held Helen on his knee while she examined his watch, and he made it strike for her. He understood Helen's signs, which made her love him at once. That interview opened the door through which Helen should pass from darkness into light, from isolation to friendship, companionship, knowledge, love. Dr. Bell advised Helen's father to write to Mr. Anagnos, director of the Perkins Institution in Boston, the scene of Dr. Howe's great labours for the blind, and ask him if he had a teacher competent to teach Helen, and in a few weeks there came a kind letter from Mr. Anagnos with the comforting assurance that a teacher had been found. With the arrival of Miss Sullivan, Helen experienced light with which she had been deprived after her sickness.
