#1: Live US Coaching
U.S. COACHING FOR GIFTED CHILDREN:
Taught by our Founder – two time U.S. State Debate Champion and Stanford University alumnus, Rajiv Kacholia.
"Their points need to be evidence-based and backed by research... I wanted to give them a voice and the confidence to speak up, though respectfully, and express their opinion." – Mr. Kacholia in Indian Express.
#2: Unique approach
FUTURE READY – CREATIVITY, CRITICAL THINKING, & COLLABORATION
Uniquely thrilling and rigorous U.S. curriculum is taught by U.S. faculty based in Mumbai. This is not a traditional elocution class. Mr. Kacholia has developed a uniquely modern pedagogy to advance competitive debate and essential 21st century life skills by augmenting evidence-based debate formats.
"Research demonstrates that debaters advance in reading, writing, and life skills. We use exciting games and challenge our students to extend beyond their personal opinions and explore alternative perspectives through rigorous analysis and discussion. Children dive into topics, become self-motivated to read and process information faster, while aspiring to formulate creative ideas supported by evidence-based reasoning." – Mr. Kacholia in Education World.
