A very well conceptualised program for the children . Mrs Dhingra ‘s passion towards creating a par excellent educational program so that our children could be on par with the educational system world over is very evident. The children were given tips and short cut methods to solve their problems . This would certainly help them in their Maths solving capabilities moving forward .
Mr Mohit Verma their teacher was extremely patient and was always ready to solve any and all children’s queries no matter how many times it was required to be explained .
Here’s wishing the team all the very best in their endeavour to create a high standard of education for our children .

A new Math

These classes were very helpful for building my foundation for Maths. They not only taught the “what” aspects of Math, but more importantly the “why” aspect of Math, through multiple activities and videos that always kept me engaged. They had scheduled doubt clarification sessions (according to our preferred timings) and they solved every question I had in great depth! The teachers made the class extremely engaging and I could not be distracted from Maths for a single second. Lastly, they always gave a good amount of homework to practice, which really helped me remember these Maths concepts. Overall the “Art of Problem Solving” course was one that I will never forget!
