Why Choose Inspirus?
The Indian Education Awards in 2019 awarded Inspirus the Best Education Counsellor Award. Also, major publications including The Hindu, YourStory, CEO Insights, PTI and Silicon India have featured them. It was founded by Bakhtawar Krishnan who is an accomplished professional in the field of higher education related to overseas study. She brings with her 30 years of diverse experience, both at the national and international levels.
It is one of India’s premier coaching and test preparation institute for overseas education. They provide coaching for SAT, GRE, GMAT and other standardised tests. They have trained and counselled over 6000 students, helping numerous students achieve their dreams of top-tier international universities.
Inspirus has small batch sizes to ensure individual attention to each student. Each student gets individual attention which pushes them towards excellent results.
The Inspirus Ideology
Key learning like ‘Thrill, don’t just fulfil’ make up the Inspirus philosophy. Along with, ‘Act with integrity’, ‘Constantly Innovate’, ‘Constantly Evolve’ and ‘Remain Childlike—Always Willing to Learn.’
Their teaching philosophy involves three key elements – concept, application, and strategy. They don’t believe in using tricks to crack the test but focus on a skill-based approach.
Personalised study plan, personal counsellor for each student, small batches to ensure individual attention are some of their key characteristics. At Inspirus, every student appears for a number of ‘Full-Length Tests’ at the centre along with multiple sectional tests.
They provide laptops and up to date software, air-conditioned study rooms. Along with a library with exhaustive study material, video lectures and question banks to their students.
The real measure of any coaching class is not what others draw from observation but what their students have to say from firsthand experience.
“Inspirus has been extremely helpful, right from guidance regarding the material followed to the practice tests and the counsellor. Not only was the access to tests unprecedented, but the feedback received from the faculty in various forms also was instrumental. I would like to especially thank my Counsellor for her guidance and advice. This wouldn’t have been possible without her,” Inspirus alumni Rudresh Panchal who scored 334/340 in GRE said.
Riddhima Sharma, who achieved an 8 IELTS Band, quoted, “I had a fantastic experience with the one on one training at Inspirus for IELTS. Counsellor was meticulous and the strategies she suggested made the difference during the test. Apart from the British Council book, I practiced with the Inspirus prep book in the days leading up to my test. The practice tests in the book were most helpful in understanding the test format. The writing section, which was the most challenging in my experience, required a lot of practice to help build the pace for the test day. What really helped me was getting feedback on my essays from my trainer. I thank Inspirus for the training and being so hands-on with their work.”
