Studymate – Quality Delivery That Gives Your Child An Edge
At Studymate, the child benefits from a comprehensive curriculum delivered by experienced and expert faculty through an interactive and blended teaching pedagogy. Studymate prides itself in having faculty of the highest caliber, as we believe they form the backbone of our learning center. We ensure that our faculty inherently displays values, which are synonymous with Studymate, namely – patience, approachability, confidence, result orientation and an unbiased attitude.
Our centers are equipped with best in class infrastructure with clean and well lit classrooms running on optimum batch size to ensure attention to the needs of each child. Within the classroom, learning is simplified by Technology-Aided Teaching as well as having study material and study notes collated by teachers who’ve demonstrated years of subject expertise.
Apart from support for pure academic excellence, we go the extra mile by providing a 48 hour board exam helpline. This interface addresses a student’s counseling and emotional needs, helps the student manage stress and clear last minute doubts as well. Our ‘Ask A Teacher’ 48 hour board exam helpline initiative last year received tremendous response and was applauded by the school principals as well as the CBSE.
Apart from academic support, we focus on overall development of the child through periodic sessions that are adequately sensitized and imbibe naturally the components of life skills, attitudes and values. As part of our offering we have partnered with Admissionz Campuz to provide our students career guidance and college admission assistance. Through this initiative our endeavour is, to equip the child in staying ahead in life.
The recent CBSE board exams are strong endorsement for Studymate. Our students did extremely well across classes. Not only did a large proportion achieve above 90%, but a significant number of students registered a substantial improvement in their results.
The encouraging feedback received from both parents and students have further strengthened our belief that it was a step taken in the right direction. In the coming years we further plan to build on our learning from the initial years and grow exponentially with a single minded vision to impart high quality coaching to our students.
