Dr Soumendra Patra I is a very enthusiastic and dedicated tutor who puts in a lot of effort to help his students excel in Chemistry. His approach to teaching and the way he structures his lessons make his classes interesting for the students. He is also very approachable and keeps parents updated on the children's progress. My daughter was lucky to have found him to tutor her in year 12. Then we enrolled our son for advanced Science lessons in year 10. We highly regard him and reccomed him as an excellent Chemistry tutor.

Being an enthusiastic tutor, Dr Patra’s lessons are always refreshing and relevant as he often provides extended knowledge. His teaching style inspires students to engage and contemplate. With a small class, Dr Patra can identify my son’s strengths and weaknesses, thereby helping to improve his school grades. He is a dedicated tutor who sets out to ensure his students truly understand the topics. He uses the board to explain difficult concepts, he sets tests to determine their knowledge. Most importantly, my son does not see the class a bore, instead he looks forward to learn. That says it all.

Dr Soumendra Patra has got in depth knowledge about the subject and the VCE Chemistry requirements. Our child comments that "He explains the topic very well and ensures that all students understand the topic before moving further". Soumendra also focuses on the revison and practice tests which are absolutely critical.

Soumendra is a passionate teacher who wants his students to learn and understand Chemistry. My son initially felt lost with this subject but under Soumendra's tutelage has become excited, more confident and eager to learn more.

Highly recommend this Tutor he puts so much effort into his classes and his passion inspires his students to build on their knowledge. He has great clarity of topics and puts much effort into helping the student progress, with their understanding. As we come closer to SACS, his preparation puts students more at ease as they become more confident in their knowledge base. This tutor has made a positive contribution to my child's Year 12 experience.

Dr Patra is very knowledgeable and he prepares me well for my SAC tests and VCE exam. The small group tuition works very well for me as Dr Patra is able to explain the Chem concepts in detail. Also his workshops on exam questions were helpful.

Helpful and interesting lessons! Ways of teaching is fun and lively. Questions that were provided in class were sometimes challenging which helped increase my knowledge. Serious tutor who always provides notes and special question answers that help to get higher marks. I always achieve high SAC marks and hope to get a high mark in VCE Chemistry.

Attending Mr Patra's class really helped me to stay on track with my progress and I gradually see improvement in my Chemistry results. He provides students with many wider knowledge that we can't learn from textbooks or in school. Mr Patra is also very helpful in terms of the preparation for my SAC, he replies messages sent as soon as possible, sets test and exams questions do to under exam conditions and gives tips on how to write a full mark explainations. Mr Patra is also very engaging and enthutiastic which makes Chemistry interesting and fun to learn.

Dr Patra is a very passionate teacher with a clear drive to help students improve. He always has the session planned out with a clear goal in mind. I think his structured approach of explaining the topic, usually by engaging in discussion, then reinforcing it with exercises works really well.

Soumendra is a gold mine to find. He has gone above and beyond as a tutor. His knowledge, expertise,advice and guidance is invaluable. He brings multiple resources to lessons from various sources that aims to clarify and consolidate any possible grey areas. Similarly, at the start of every lesson, Soumendra explains exactly what we will be covering, for how long and what we aim to cover in the upcoming lessons. Ever since I started tutoring with Soumendra, my grades and understanding has increased exponentially and I believe that under his tuition I will be heading for an A pass in VCE or higher.
