What is Socratic Method of teaching ?

  • Socratic Method of learning and teaching.
    • This technique is based on interactive question answer techniques.
    • This method saves a lot of time and is very efficient in imparting complex concepts in about 1/3rd of the time required to teach students.
    • We ask questions to know what student alrerady knows. Then we give suitable hints to the students to reach on the final comclusion on their own.Student is only taught what he doesn't know.
    • In short our teaching is complementary (Learning by doing) and NOT supplementary (spoon feeding and formula based problem solving).
    • Basically it is an interactive teaching methodology, involving student to do things them selves, guided by mentor.
  • To us teaching is complete development of mind rather percento-mania in action.
  • However our students score very well in exams. Most of them are usually in top 3.
  • We give customized handwritten notes (In live session) to students.
  • We don't give pre-baked (Printed) notes as research has shown that self written notes increase learning by as much as 67%.

How much improvement can I expect ?

  • Depends entirely on your hard work and sincerity.We have brought students who were on the verge of failing to getting more than 90% (Anonymous testimony available on request).
  • Typically you can expect an improvement of at least 20% from your joining or bottom performance.
  • Without boasting, our experience tells us that, every student whom we have taught (from whatever level) has managed to be in top 5 spot in his or her class ,if they are not there already.
  • We only prefer full term courses. We are NOT only promising better marks but a life transformation. Our faculties are well equipped wiht enough life experience and knowlegde that they will transform the life of the student. Since transformation needs time, we ONLY take full year students. We teach subject matter along with motivational lectures, life skills and knowledge from many other domains. You can think this coaching as a complete life transformation and NOT jus timprovement in grades or marks.

How many classes per week are there and duration?

  • One class a week of 1.5 to 3 hrs duration.
  • Faculties descretion is final in class schedule and duration.

Should I take one year course or two year course?

  • If you do not go to any coaching or want in depth preparation, we suggest a two year program for IIT JEE.
  • For students already going to coaching, one year course or 100 hour program is sufficient.
  • For coaching going students, the best time to join is in Grade XII, just before the summer vacations.
  • Students know grade XI course and have ready made doubts.​
  • In summer vacations they can clear all doubts of XIth and get basics ready for XIIth.

What is an assessment class ?

  • In assessment class we try to understand the study habits and underlying problems (Both academic as well as psychological) of the student and plan the future course of action.
  • We suggest books they must refer, way of studies, timing for practice and a whole bunch of life transforming advice.
  • Assessment class is an diagnostic class and NOT judgemental class.
  • We ask several questions (Both academic as well as psychological) to understand the subject expertise, inner thinking patterns as well as real motivations of the student.
  • We try to chalk out best plan of action for the student and the best courses he/she must prepare to get best results.
  • Future expectations and projections from the coaching are devised and designed. We assess the student and project the improvement in the grades or marks or ranks etc.
  • In short in assessment class we find out the diagnosis of the underlying problem (needs) and the design the roadmap to achive the desired transformation.

How many students you teach per year?

We teach only 3 students per year (One student per day).
