What Our Students Say About Our Faculty  

"Prof. Amlesh was an exceptional guiding force. Everything I have learned about Python through his course not only helped me for the exam, but I believe will help me a long way. He was patient with every student and every doubt. He made sure that everyone was comfortable with the pace he was going at. Apart from that, his course was also very well structured, Learning coding this way, in a step by step manner has really cleared my basics, which makes it easier for me not just to get comfortable with python, but every other programming language. The handouts provided were of great help as well, because during the lecture or even while practicing, there was a guide available to us on every step of the way. Overall, I believe that Prof. Amlesh's course was outstanding in every way and I look forward to learning more from him if the academy gives me the opportunity."

Sana Parikh 

"Prof Amlesh is the most patient and eloquent professor ever. I have no background in data and programming, and he made everything seem so easy and understandable, that it never felt like I haven't done this before. He was always approachable, and always very open to helping students actually learn."
