Perfect! I highly recommend Pradeep to anyone who is looking for a finance tutor. I am studying at Masters level and the material is a little challenging, however Pradeep was able to go through a number of challenging questions with me and explain things in a very understandable way, using a step by step approach which I found very helpful. Pradeep would also make sure that I fully understood the topic before moving onto the next question which is a hallmark of a great teacher.

PRADEEP's response

Thanks for your review

Perfect! Pradeep is an amazing tutor. He is well-versed and very knowledgable in his field. He really goes out of his way to ensure that his students are satisfied, as well as confident and prepared for their exams.

He has always been my tutor through my qualifications. He is always a message or phone call away whenever I need something explaining.

Also, he has a unique way of making content easy and always thoroughly explains the key topics for exams.

The revision sessions and going through past papers gives me so much confidence just before my sittings. Highly recommended!!

I have been working with Pradeep for around 3 months now. During that time Pradeep has helped me understand many ‘elements’ of finance and investment. Pradeep is very pro-active and knowledgeable in all the areas we’ve worked on together.

Not only is Pradeep very good at what he does he explains everything very well and is happy to recap, at any given time, to help the information and new knowledge ‘bed-in’.

I have learnt a great deal from Pradeep and I continue to do so. Pradeep and I have a ‘reciprocal’ working relationship that will last long into the future.

I highly recommend Pradeep to anyone looking to expand their knowledge on the areas in which Pradeep specialises. I would go as far to say, for me at least, there is no better individual!!

Pradeep is an awesome human-being too!!

HIGHLY RECCOMENDED!!!

He always ensured that I understood every detail of the concept in minimal time. I strongly recommend him as the go-to person for any student who is aspiring to learn finance concepts.

Pradeep is an individual with deep knowledge in the subject of finance, he is able to take complex topics and break this down into digestible formats to help your understanding, then show its application within the real world. Also great with answering challenging questions that may be considered outside the scope, would highly recommend his services to anyone.

Interview with PRADEEP

QUESTION 01 | 08
When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?
PRADEEP — I have been tutoring students since 2013 when I first started my MBA in Finance. I have always been passionate about Finance and it is very close to my heart. I made it a point to help students learn finance concepts with a practical touch to it.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).
PRADEEP — I teach Corporate Finance, Asset Markets, Company valuation, Financial Modelling, value investing, and investments. Besides these, I like teaching investment principles and stock investing. I maintain my portfolio and I am in the process of forming a research team with people who are interested in identifying undervalued businesses.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Did you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
PRADEEP — Undoubtedly it is my father as he is a Mathematics professor by profession and I am sure he is one of the main reasons for my interest in teaching
QUESTION 04 | 08
What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?
PRADEEP — First and foremost, in my opinion, it is the patience with the student and the ability to understand the student's requirements well. These are the important qualities that a tutor must possess rather than just the show of knowledge with the student
QUESTION 05 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.
PRADEEP — am so close to finance that I completed my MBA in finance, Masters in Finance from London Business School, cleared 3 levels of CFA, and achieved FRM charter holder. During my business school days earlier, I managed the student fund by picking businesses that are undervalued and I developed a stock market exchange for a sports festival. It is always fun for me to do anything related to finance starting from the books I read to the work I do every day.
QUESTION 06 | 08
What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or still facing in your subject?
PRADEEP — I do not think there are many challenges but sometimes it gets tough to make the student understand the practical realities. Understandably, questions from the students are simple and effective but understanding answers to those require practical knowledge that a student may not have. This is one of the challenges that I have been facing recently.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general or an element of the subject or something completely different?
PRADEEP — My passion is in investing and I made a lot of investments over time. I am a strong proponent of value investing. Investing for me encompasses all the subjects we studied such as company valuation, asset markets, corporate finance, financial modeling, etc. So, for me, investing is that sublimation point that transforms theoretical knowledge into practical realities.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof (besides answering this interview questions:-P)?
PRADEEP — I firmly believe that I understand the pulse of students and their requirements very well. I want them not just to pass their exams but also to achieve high in their career. For every one of my students, I ask them what they want to achieve and guide them through their careers by putting them in touch with the right people. It is impressive to see that students achieve a lot at their young age and with just a right push I am sure they'd reach heights.
