This class was amazing and so worth it!! Rohit really helped me plan my presentation. I will continue tutoring with him and can only recommend him. He made sure that I understood everything and truly believes in his students. Thank you so much

Akshay Kotecha ISC Psychology- Grade 12 S N Kansagra School Academic Year 2013-14 "Rohit Sir is one of the most calm teachers I have ever been taught by. I have never seen him loose his cool and yet he manages to have everyone's attention even if it is the last period of the day. This cool nature of his makes the explanation of even the most complex theories simple to understand. Psychology with him was one of the most interesting classes we ever took in our school times."
Samruddhi Bhojani IBDP HL Psychology Student 2018-20 The Galaxy School "Firstly, It has been an amazing journey throughout both the years. I had a great time studying psych. With Rohit Sir’s teaching pattern, I was easily able to connect and understand all the topics because he not only explained the theories but also connected it with real life examples. Sir used multiple creative methods to teach us like, showing us short films, group activities, watching videos, answer practices, etc which were very effective and have contributed a lot towards our understanding of the subject today. Sir was friendly with all the students and has helped us a lot. Whenever, in doubt, we could approach sir at any point in time. Even for the IA’s, the whole process was very well scheduled and planned by Sir which helped us work on our IA till our level best. I am so glad that I followed sir’s advise to start my IA well before so that in the end I don’t have to submit the draft which is not my best. The same is applied for EE. Multiple feedbacks and multiple sessions on IAs and EE were conducted. Not only during the regular school, but also during the lockdown and online schooling, Sir has made efforts to make our work easy. Lastly, Sir is very hard working, very friendly, approachable and helpful."
IBDP HL Psychology Student: Diya Kotecha Academic Year: 2018-20 The Galaxy School “Rohit sir has been teaching me psychology for the past 2 years now. Throughout these two years, he has been an extremely understanding and adaptable teacher. He could empathize with our situation as students and was ready to adapt to changes required in the class environment, teaching methods, and deadlines as well. Moreover, his teaching methods always involved an effective use of technology and resources available. Consistent with the concepts being taught and the class’s environment, he adopted and focused on collaborative teaching methods that made the sessions interactive. The classes were always engaging with humor, interesting quizzes, and debates that aided me in prolonging a strong classroom presence. There was never a dull or monotonous class with Rohit sir. I not only understood the concepts in-depth but was also able to connect them to real-life situations since sir’s teaching methods always ensured the involvement of real-world circumstances. He was always willing to share his knowledge and experiences throughout his life whenever linked to the concept being taught in the class. As a student, I had the benefit of understanding the practical application of the psychological concepts and what I was learning at that particular moment. He has patiently answered each and every question I had regarding the subject and hence, seemed very approachable. He not only listened but also respected our opinions regarding the orderly discussions taking place in the class. Sir always carries a positive attitude in the school and motivates all students to reach their best potential.”
