# Testimonials

We contacted Cheenta because our son, Sambuddha (a.k.a. Sam), seemed to have something of a gift in mathematical/logical thinking, and his school curriculum math was way too easy and boring for him. We were overjoyed when Mr Ashani Dasgupta administered an admission test and accepted Sam as a one-to-one student at Cheenta. Ever since it has been an excellent experience and we have nothing but praise for Mr Dasgupta. His enthusiasm for mathematics is infectious, and admirable is the amount of energy and thought he puts into each lesson. He covers a wide range of mathematical topics, and every lesson is packed with insights and methods. We are extremely pleased with the difference he has been making. Under his tutelage Sam has secured several gold awards from the UK Mathematics Trust (UKMT) and Scottish Mathematical Council (SMC). Recently Sam received a book award from the UKMT and got invited to masterclass sessions also organised by the UKMT. Mr Dasgupta’s tutoring was crucial for these achievements. We think Cheenta is rendering an excellent service to humanity by identifying young mathematical minds and nurturing them towards becoming inspired mathematicians of the future.

My son, Shuborno has been studying under Ashani from last one year. During this period, we have seen our son grow both intellectually and emotionally. His concepts and approach towards solving a problem has become more mature now. Not that he can solve each and every problem but he loves to think on the tough concepts. For this, all credit goes to Ashani, who is never in a hurry to solve a problem quickly. Rather he tries to slowly build the foundation of the students by discussing even minute concepts. His style of teaching is also unique combining different concepts and giving mathematics a more holistic approach. He is also very motivating and helpful. We are lucky that our son is under such good guidance. Rare to get such a dedicated teacher.

“Our experience with Cheenta has been excellent. Even though my son started in Middle School, they understood his Math level and took personal interest in developing a long term plan considering his strengths and weekness areas. Through out the semester courses they have nourished him with challenging problems and necessary homework. His guidance has helped my son to perform well at competitions including USAJMO and others. He has grown more confident in his math abilities over the past year and half and is hoping to do well in the future.

I am impressed with their quality and professionalism. We are very thankful to Cheenta and hope to benefit from them in the coming years. I would strongly recommend them to any student who wants to learn Math by doing challenging problems, specially if they are looking for Math than what their school can offer.

“I remember those days amazingly well..being deprived of my sleep..my dear sleep,to stare bleary eyed at the computer screen as my hand moved mechanically to login to the skype and my mail…but as soon as the class began mathematics started working through me like caffeine.I was soon drowned in a temptuos ocean of mathematics with ashani sir holding the bars as he would guide us through the waves to gape at the simplicity yet infinite beauty of the ocean of mathematics..after the class would end..my sleep would return nd i would resign to my bed.Needless to say the course helped me to get in touch and unterstand the deeper abysses of mathematics…the journey was great though i missed some classes i never felt out of pace with sir nd his mathematics.It was a great experience.I wish now if we had the physics program back then…it would have been perfect!

While there are numerous coaching options available for students preparing for IIT-JEE and similar competitive exams, it is much harder to find options for someone interested in entrance exams such as CMI’s or ISI’s. JEE coaching is not enough for these exams. I am happy to have discovered Cheenta academy which focuses on these entrance exams and is a good option for this.

When I joined Cheenta, I already knew that I liked Math and I was interested in developing my math skills for ISI and CMI entrance exam. Though the course started with a specific schedule, it later was fine tuned based on my requirements. Ashani Gupta was very patient in explaining concepts, the on-line tests conducted were quite tough, so it made me study more. Ashani also worked with me for my interviews after I cleared my entrance exams. I would definitely recommend Cheenta for any one considering to appear for Math entrance exams.”
