Hindustan Times in association with MT Educare started Studymate tuition centers for Class IX-XII in the year 2010.
The development of Studymate tuition centers is the culmination of many years of experience in the field of education, garnered through our educational supplement HT Education, and through partnership initiatives with numerous schools for our Newspapers in Education initiative through HT PACE and HT NEXT. With Studymate, our aim of equipping and empowering young minds to pursue their dreams has been furthered.
MT Educare is an Educational Service Provider with a versatile product portfolio and has strong foothold in the domain of imparting supplementary education. MT is well entrenched in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu and internationally in Dubai, with over 172 centers and over 2 lakh alumni, the world over. Every Year over 75% of its students, score an aggregate of 90 percent and above in the board exams.
We started with four state-of-the art centers in Delhi/NCR (Patel Nagar, Lajpat Nagar, Janakpuri and Mayur Vihar) and based on the tremendous response we received in the first year, we added another two centers (Malviya Nagar and Gurgaon) in the year 2011. Today we have more than 700 students enrolled with us.
At a Studymate Tuition center, the child benefits from a curriculum that has been synchronized with the CBSE Board's System and is updated to include the latest Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation. From enrolment to exams and student personality development, our students are mentored by teachers with a proven track record, who've been hired by our Educational Board after an exhaustive screening and selection process.
Studymate prides itself in having faculty of the highest caliber, as we believe they form the backbone of our tuition center. We ensure that our faculty inherently displays values, which are synonymous with Studymate, namely – patience, approachability, confidence, result orientation and an unbiased attitude.
Our centers are equipped with best in class infrastructure with clean and well lit classrooms running on optimum batch size to ensure attention to the needs of each child. Within the classroom, learning is simplified by Technology-Aided Teaching as well as having study material and study notes collated by teachers who've demonstrated years of subject expertise.
Apart from support for pure academic excellence, we go the extra mile by providing a 24 hour board exam helpline. This interface addresses a student's counseling and emotional needs, helps the student manage stress and clear last minute doubts as well. Our ‘Hum se Pocho’ 24 hour board exam helpline initiative last year received tremendous response and was applauded by the school principals as well as the CBSE chairman Mr. Vineet Joshi.
The recent CBSE board exams are strong endorsement for Studymate. Our students did extremely well across classes. Not only did a large proportion achieve above 90%, but a significant number of students registered a substantial improvement in their results.
The encouraging feedback received from both parents and students have further strengthened our belief that it was a step taken in the right direction. In the coming years we further plan to build on our learning in the first two years and grow exponentially with a single minded vision to impart high quality coaching to our students.
