I am writing as a parent of a VCE student tutored by Dr S Patra for chemistry. Soumendra is extremely passionate about chemistry and really wants all of his students to excel. He is able to adjust the homework burden as per the ambitions and capabilities of each student. He gives extra classes and tutorial; there are a lot of mock exams. He is honest in his appraisals about each student's progress and communicates promptly with parents.

Dr Patra is a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic tutor, who helped me immensely to improve my Chemistry. Through his teaching, I have come to like the subject and enjoy what I learnt every week. He provided various sources of materials that were helpful in preparing for SACs and the final exam, that were not given to me by my school, and these resources were really helpful. He always helped me when I didn’t understand a concept and put in lots of effort into each class.

Dr Patra has been an excellent teacher throughout a difficult year. He is explains concepts thoroughly and competently, encouraging student participation even during online learning. He provides high quality materials that help students further their learning and is always happy to provide extra materials when a topic is particularly challenging. Dr Patra makes sure to connect chemistry concepts to real life application widening students general knowledge all with an exam preparation mindset. He is incredibly invested in his students and is perceptive to their feedback and methods of learning. I have greatly enjoyed being apart of his classes this past year as he has made chemistry an interesting and engaging subject.

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.

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.

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.
