Sreedhar has a wealth of experience working in the fields of psychology, counselling, life skills training – he has worked as a lecturer and trainer (apart from always being a student himself).
He set about analysing and understanding current IELTS training methods in various institutes all over the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. Undoubtedly most of them make a sincere effort to train students to do well in the IELTS test and many of their students indeed get the required IELTS band scores.
He talked to students at the time of enrolment, who weren’t able to get the required IELTS band scores; to understand why they could not succeed. Was it just their lack of English language skills that caused their failure, that made it difficult for them to clear the IELTS test? Or, could the methods to train them be improved, modified or structured differently to help such students?


Drawing on the latest proven research on the most effective ways, methods of teaching and learning, Sreedhar went about structuring, designing the IELTS training course differently. Instead of just making the students do endless practice tests with answer keys to check their scores themselves Sreedhar has designed the feedback loop to help the students improve with every practice test.
