Positive: Communication, Professionalism – “It was a lovely experience to be a part of this institution. The most fun part about my time here was during the research study where I interacted with some very intelligent seniors to create an impactful research design. I came to know about the various topics that competitive exams put in front of students and how to learn and tackle the problems related with them.” – Upamanyu Dutta, Class XII, Incoming Bachelors in Sustainability, XIM Bhubaneswar

“I had approached Catalyst in 2018 to prepare for my social science entrance tests in various universities and institutions across India. I personally had a really great experience at Catalyst. I would define it as an appropriate mentoring service. The service wouldn’t end just by preparing the students for the written entrance, but it was also extended to the preparation of interviews and so on. Catalyst focuses on a holistic development of the individual. It emphasizes on bringing on board subject matter specialists and experts. Finally, the founder and chief mentor of Catalyst is extremely dedicated when it comes to the welfare of his students. Sauraveswar Sen Sir is one such person who always encourages his students to take initiatives and guides them forward. His communication skills are to the point and he would explain a topic n number of times patiently till the students are clear about it. Overall, my experience of being a part of Catalyst has been very pleasant and I am indeed honoured to be an alumnus of Catalyst. – Poymanti Gupta, Masters in Psychology, IIPR Bangalore

“ I was told about this institute by two of my friends. Initially I was a bit confused about joining Catalyst because at that point in time I had to take some serious decisions about my career. Somehow, I decided to go and meet the mentor, Sauraveswar Sen sir, and honestly the first meet was enough to make a confident choice to join Catalyst. Since I come from a science background entering the social science sector was a bumpy ride and Catalyst helped a lot at this juncture. Not only Catalyst provided me with standard materials for knowledge building and regular assessments to test my understanding but with the sincere guidance of Sen sir, I could actually see the gradual growth in my approaches, perspectives and body language. Any help pertaining to course work was happily provided by Catalyst even after class hours. “  Debankur Talukdar, MSW CODP TISS 2020 -22
