In 2016, after 2 attempts on my own at IELTS General Module, I lost hope of ever going to Australia on an offsite project then a close friend recommended Priyamvada. On the first meeting, she brought back hope. Her way of dealing with my weak points was amazing.
I highly recommend her to anyone looking at taking IELTS training - she is calm, patient, knows her subject just too well, and her approach is excellent.
Thank You for all and best wishes.
Priyamvada guided me for PTE in a very short span of time. She was very thorough and very approachable. When going through so many uncertainties and visa issues, I found her positivity a blessing. She was very encouraging and very informed and allayed a lot of our doubts and fears. Would remain ever so grateful to her for helping me in our time of need. Thanks a lot, Priyamvada.
Right when I decided to sit for IELTS exam within a short span of time, the only person that came to my mind was Priyamvada. Provided sufficient and valuable study material with very flexible online classes which helped me gain more confidence to appear for the exam and get my desired scores. She was very supportive and gave me exactly the tricks that were needed to apply during my preparation. Thank you so much for all the help and support.
Great platform to seek career guidance!
Took my GRE training for 2 months with Ma'am. The material was apt and superb which helped me study what was needed for the test and her way to explain the basics was best bcoz it helped me tackle any and all types of question during the main test.
Lastly, her way to monitor the mock test was perfect. She managed my time and helped me score well.
Thank You, Ma'am.
Wow a jump from 500 to 760 in the verbal section for SAT was like a miracle.
I had taken classes for SAT elsewhere but the result wasn't great so I decided to redo the verbal part again. Ma'am was too good - she made vocabs so easy for me and the reading section turned from boring to humorous reading.
I would say she has a magic wand.
Thank You :)
Priyamvada is a wonderful person with a fantastic attitude. She mentored my daughter Tishya for SAT English and it was more than just coaching. We were so fortunate to get Priya introduced to Tishya and everything worked out so well for us. My daughter has become a huge fan of Priya and looking to be in touch with her for her career guidance. Wishing Priya much more success and our sincere thanks for a job well done!
It's rare that you come across a person who is equally responsible and witty --But I was lucky to have Priyamvada as my GRE verbal tutor. Although I've had the pleasure of knowing her for merely about two months, she impressed with her teaching skill on the very first class of mine. Her heart-warming and resourceful teaching can make any student fall in love with the subject even if that person had an aversion towards that topic. Above all, I was really impressed with her ability to effortlessly communicate even with the most difficult students. I was always in awe of Priyamvada's capability of commanding you like a strict teacher this moment and the next moment she can become the best buddy of yours. Hence, I highly recommend her as a verbal tutor to all aspiring students especially those who hate English literature. Mark my word--- you will fall in love with your GRE verbal preparation.
Working with Priyamvada was a great experience- she helped me from spearheading the university application processes to ultimately making the final decision and beyond. Moreover, she was very easy to work with and made those few months seamless. I enjoyed working with her and would definitely recommend her in all matters of consultancy.
I wholeheartedly recommend Priyamvada. I was fortunate enough to work with Priyamvada for my Son and take advantage of her expertise in the field of career consultancy. She could read the interest and capabilities of my Son and advised the right path. I found her to be dedicated, professional and truly caring about her clients and their success.
Priyamvada is very professional in her work. She provided me with excellent and to the point advice that helped me a lot in realizing my ambition to study abroad.
She is always cheerful and friendly. I believe her ability to listen and understand her client's needs allows her to consult effectively. I recommend her to anyone who needs the advice to study abroad.
It was fantastic working with Priyamvada. She is experienced, responsible, professional and supportive. I took her help with IELTS, GMAT and my master application for universities in the US & UK. She gave me a clear idea of what I should do, how I should do, and when I should get it done. Throughout my exams and application, I was working full-time alongside. The process can be stressful sometimes, she provided mental support that helped me keep a good mind. The most important point is, unlike many consultants, Priyamvada 100% respected my choice and decision. She encourages me to trust myself and she never said the word "impossible". The application went really well and I got into my favorite university! I strongly recommend whoever need help with English Language tests and applications to approach Priyamvada. They say perfection hides between the little details. This is what I see in her, and I really appreciate it. Trust me, it feels wonderful working with someone who knows what they are doing as a teacher, and as a person.
