Ganesh’s Story

Ganesh was first inspired by his Math teacher in school, Mrs. Molly Abraham. He began teaching Mathematics in 1997 for a variety of students, and over time shifted focus to preparation for standardized tests such as GRE, GMAT and SAT. He also began teaching English in 1999 for these tests. During his first six years of teaching (through which he was also counseling and running his education company), Ganesh commonly taught up to 14 hours every day, seven days a week. He was known for the high quality that he delivered in the classroom, whether it was at 6am or 9pm.

Ganesh often referred to himself as the “delivery boy” – he perfected the art of taking complex concepts and ideas and “delivering them” to the students' brains. Besides being an effective teacher in the classroom, he also encouraged students to go beyond themselves and was able to inspire many students who were at the bottom 50% of the class to perform at par with the top 10% of their class.

Ganesh’s students twice produced absolutely GRE scores during his 17 years of teaching. The first absolute score was a 1600/1600 in the previous format produced by Nadeem Mohsin, a student of MHSS College of Engineering in Mumbai. The second time, which was the first ever absolute score (340/340) in the new GRE format came through Ashwini Nene, who was a student at Sardar Patel Institute of Technology. Ashwini’s score came just a few months before Ganesh stopped teaching in 2013 and was a wonderful parting gift for him as a teacher.

Ganesh also worked on an online platform during the final three years of his teaching career, and has over 400 hours of recorded videos available for those who would like to learn with him.
