Most students spend more than 1,000 hours with us. In addition to preparing them for entrance exams, we also focus on inculcating healthy values and good learning behavior among our students:
- → Students are taught to take responsibility for their own learning
- → A focus on group study
- → Debate and discussion-based learning methodology
- → Humility, respect and discipline form the core of our classroom culture
The implementation of our methodology of teaching does not use the conventional figure of the teacher: it is based on having social workers who focus their duties on being advisers and facilitators for the students in their charge. The students enter a peer-to-peer learning system that is combined with mentoring.
Our social workers have strong community and social skills, maintain discipline and guide the students in the learning process, as well as giving the students individual advice. They play an essential role in ensuring that the students are active and motivated. If they note that a student needs guidance and academic support, they send that student to a mentor.
Name: Shwetha S
Class: XII in JNV CKM
Background: I am studying in class XII in JNV CKM and I am from Rural background. The problem that I have faced is, by hearing the lessons in the class we used to imagine concepts but were not having clear idea of the concept. But Avanti Videos provided the correct picture of concepts with good explanations. Before Avanti, we did not know any short cuts or easy tips to solve problems. But Avanti gave us many hints and tips to solve problems which we used in class test also.
Progress: I was scoring less marks in class tests. But now I have improved and able to score well in all tests. Peer learning made us very attentive and active in class. It helps us to enhance our sense of understanding. I learnt to manage time in exams and also to solve numericals.

Family background: Poor family
Problem: In the initial days, he didn’t believe that he would become a potential student for JEE mains exam. While solving in-class- exercise and homework questions, he faced some problem because some videos don’t teach in detail about the concept and because of this sometimes he would get less marks in chapter tests.
Outcome: Avanti teachers helped him in understanding. He also faced problem during solving in-class exercise but Avanti teachers’ support helped him in solving doubt in better way. Additional effort provided by Avanti teachers helped a lot to understand the concepts.
