What Students Say

“Math sessions with Mr. Hari were fantastic. Not only did I enjoy his class, but his approachable nature made me dwell deeper into the subject. While I was originally signed up to have him tutor me in Math to prepare for IIT JEE, he ended up mentoring me in time management and how to handle Physics and Chemistry along with Math, His dedication and passion, combined with snippets from his own journey through the IIT system, provided me a lot of inspiration. I am extremely grateful to have been his student for 2 years.”

~ Sumanth

“Mr. Hari was my Math teacher for the 2 years I spent preparing for the IIT JEE exam. His being an IITian and having an effective teaching style provided added motivation for me. He covered topics beginning with the basics, and gradually elevated the level to reach JEE Advanced. He encouraged us to solve more problems, and was always ready to address our questions. I'm very thankful to have had him as my teacher.”

What Students Say

“Whenever I think about the teachers who changed my life, Mr. Gedala comes to mind. He made me enjoy Chemistry, but also taught me the value of hard work and dedication. Grades 11 and 12 were very important in my life, and I am so happy I could have him as my teacher.”

~ Sai S

“A simple thank you won't be enough to express my gratitude to Mr. Gedala. I used to think Chemistry is a subject where we memorize formulae and equations, but after attending his lectures I understood that it was all conceptual. Instead of memorizing the equations, he taught me how to understand the process. The subject which used to be a nightmare became my favourite. In school I heard that Organic Chemistry is the most difficult part, but it became very easy to understand after he taught me. Lastly, I would say that a teacher is not only a person who gives us knowledge, but also someone who molds us into a good person. In our lives we meet different teachers but there are only few who change our perspective towards life and for me it was Mr. Gedala who taught me how to find positivity in any situation. I owe a lot of what I am today to him.”
