"I would imagine, getting to know Pratap Sir in respect of Actuaries coaching isn’t enough, and lots have already been said about his prowess in this arena. I have had the pleasure of spending time listening to his idols and thoughts. Believe me, it’s been one of those associations that I have come to cherish. He inspires you with his simplicity and very instigating thoughts. He has come to make a difference to all he comes across. It’s a journey well begun for me and I hope to be guided by his condor and focused approach throughout. Wish you all the very best and thank you for being there!"

Hailing from engineering background, initially I was quite skeptical about writing 3 papers in first exam diet. However Pratap sir's conceptual teaching & incitation quelled my dubiety and I could clear all the papers in one go. His conceptual pedagogy has helped me a lot to get good grasp over the subjects (CT- 3, 5, 6). I am earnestly indebted to him for his formidable support and constant encouragement.

I found Pratap's sir classes on ct6 very useful. These classes helped me in getting a very good understanding of basics which was very important for the subject like CT6. Together with the right amount of practice material given, I knew I had enough tools in my arsenal to fight for otherwise difficult paper!! The best part was that I was able to clear CT6 in the very first attempt.

A Good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination and instill a love of learning -- these words perfectly suit Pratap sir. His approach towards each student is custom-made. The interactive sessions are lively, where a student can freely discuss his doubts, not only subject-related but also regarding actuarial career.

When I was in deep confusion regarding my career as well as in actuarial concepts after 3 basic CT papers, he guided me in a right way and made me progress through clearing papers. The result is -- now I have a good proactive idea about my career. I hope I would clear the remaining papers with flying colors under his guidance. Thank you sir,

Pratap sir- One of the best mentors I have ever come across! I cannot even imagine clearing the entire CT series in my first attempt without his guidance. Sir makes the teaching sessions very interesting and makes the complicated formulas and texts in the material appear simple and easy. He makes one love the subject being studied. Motivates students and makes sure that their goal is always their main focus. Thank you sir!

Only after I was mentored by Pratap sir, I discovered the aspects of actuarial science that I knew nothing about. Sir gives a personal touch to the entire teaching process and stays connected with you at all times. He not only takes care of the progress of your studies but also is concerned about your own well being.

I owe my success of clearing 7 exams to Pratap Padhi sir. He immensely motivates to strive hard. His methodology is not just restricted to books. Sir gives practical insights about the subject. And the best part is that sir will never misguide anyone like other coaching institutes. Pratap sir is a perfect blend of knowledge, charisma and positivity. He focuses on the basics and concepts which is the reason i was to able to tackle special technical (st) paper on my own. Sir prepares his students not only to clear cts but also to manage higher exams.

Looking forward on clearing more and more exams with him :)

After tons of disappointments, this is the only place and faculty which actually lead me towards my dream in a very positive and courageous way. I wish I knew about Smears education solution before. Also, Mr Pratap Padhi is an excellent person. Apart from quantitative development of a student in context to exams he also spares time to understand the needs of students in regards to career and personal development. I have the highest recommendation for Smears education solutions and Mr Pratap Padhi as a host to your career and development.

Writing testimonial is a real pleasure especially when you are writing it for someone like Pratap Sir. The best thing about him is that he teaches the concept in a simple way. His teaching style is unique, full of examples which remain in memory for life.
Over the years of experience, it’s my understanding that if you can bring & convey the concept to the level of students then you have an excellent knack of teaching. And this is what I found in Pratap Sir. No matter how new the topic is, he has a unique way to present it.
I had the feeling that studying Actuarial Science’ll be very difficult but it was finally so easy learning with all the class room sessions and assignments given by sir. So overall, I had a fun and enriching time learning from him which helped me to shape my career & I am looking further whatever I ll do in future. He also helped me in clearing my doubts irrespective of time and date all the way till my exams.”
