I'm passionate about teaching. My focus is always to start from basics and build up to the advanced level. I motivate students. Students always feel comfortable around me.


I like to build up from fundamentals right up to to the level of GATE exam or course levels that are taught at IITs. I have taught many students in the past. I was an assistant professor for 2 years and also I have tutored many students individually. I work around their individual potential. Students generally feel very comfortable learning and being around me. I'm sure you will definitely learn something well if you give me an opportunity to tutor you.

Method of teaching:
The courses/modules I deal with involves plenty of problems solving. The problems will be solved to understand physics better while cleverly using mathematical tools. The idea is to connect especially calculus with the physics/mechanics involved in the problem of study.

Perfect! Excellent tutor


Perfect! Ankur is a really patient and brilliant teacher, he priorities the student's understanding of the concepts rather than finishing portions and that's what sets him apart. He has thorough knowledge in whatever he teaches and will help you visualize whatever he teaches you. Truly a Super(b) Prof!


Perfect! Ankur has a unique teaching method that is effective if you're a visual learner. If you need help with fluid mechanics and structures I can vouch for Ankur to be of use to you.


Perfect! I have done about 4 classes with Mr Patel and my overall review for him is on the positive side. I find him very patient at teaching, whenever I found a concept difficult he would repeat the whole concept patiently. His teaching method is also very good, he uses a white board on Skype, so it feels like I am actually in front of him in a classroom. His teaching style is also very good and in an organised manner. I would absolutely recommend him to those who are taking or to those who want to learn Mechanical Engineering.


Perfect! Great approach & a good attitude. Understanding and co operative. Patient.


Perfect! The course has been great for learning about my choice of subject. The tutor is very thorough with his work and is clearly passionate about teaching. I highly recommend this tutor to everyone.

I'm having a great time teaching him.

Ankur sir is one the best teacher I have ever studied from in my life. He explains all the concepts in a very easy way by first making the basics strong. And the best part is that he relates all the concepts with real life problems. He explains the derivations of any concepts in such a manner that students themselves can explain to anyone like a teacher. He taught me so well that all the concepts were so clear that I never felt any need to revise them. And I feel that all the students either pursuing their engineering or preparing for any competitive examination or trying to learn concepts out of curiosity are going to benefited by Ankur sir's teaching.

He is very friendly and helpful in nature.


Mr. Ankur Patel was my professor during the final year of my bachelor's degree course in mechanical engineering. He handled the course on finite element method for my class. To this day, he remains in my mind as one of the best professors I've ever had handle one of my courses. His knowledge in the field was unquestionable and it was very evident from the way he taught the class that he had put a great deal of effort into perfecting his basics in the field. This opinion was further confirmed to be true by the way he solved multiple and often complex problems in the class. One of the best things I remember from the time I spent in class with him was his humility and overall very friendly demeanor. One could approach him with the most basic question and be fairly confident that they would walk away with the exact answer they were looking for.
I got to know Mr. Patel better during my final semester as he was the guide for my teammates and I for our final project. A project for which all of us scored the highest grade possible thanks in large part to Mr. Patel's guidance. Our project was about the design and simulation of a basic landing gear system for a light aircraft. Neither my teammates nor I had been exposed to a many concepts used as part of this project before. But we were able set ourselves in the right direction due to the guidance and inputs we received from Mr. Patel. By no means did he spoon feed us. What Mr. Patel did was give us a good starting point and more importantly, he taught us how to ask the right questions and then seek out the answers. This not only gave us the correct research material to go on, but also helped my teammates and I stand our ground during the final project presentation.
I cannot remember anything more satisfying than looking at my grade card at the end of my semester and I fully acknowledge the fact that without Mr. Patel's guidance, I wouldn't be where I am today.
I am delighted to learn that Mr. Patel seeks to help more students on your platform and I am confident that most students under him will have a similar experinece and as much fun as I have had.


I had the privilege of attending Ankur sir's classes during my GATE preparation days. It was in 2012 and he just started his teaching career back then.
Even then, all of the students who attended his class including me liked his teaching style very well. He motivated us to think and always answers our doubts very convincingly. He promoted healthy discussions in the class regarding topics and enhanced our reasoning and problem solving skills.
Also, his knowledge about the subjects he taught is of the highest standard. He is also having a very good personality, and a mentality to understand and help the students.
I can only imagine his teaching skills and knowledge would have improved since then, and it is great to see that he offers his classes online now, which can address a lot of students from anywhere in the world. So if you are a student looking forward to improve your knowledge or appear in a competitive exam in subjects offered by him, I urge you to take this chance and get influenced positively by Ankur sir.


Great teacher and a wonderful person.
I have done a few courses under him. He is very structured in his approach. Makes sure that you understand a topic fundamentally with a perfect balance of numerical examples. Very approachable and patient. Most of the learning is done in the class itself and not through a load of homeworks and that's a great quality for a teacher.

I totally recommend him. Was a great experience learning from you, sir. Thanks.


Sir Ankur was prof for me in two subjects Theory of elasticity and Fluid dynamics. Along with those subjects he taught me little bit of thermal background. He is good guide for me. Even for my masters I am taking help from him. I was working as instructor top colleges of bangalore. I used keep ankur as role model while I was teaching students.


Excellent Teacher ! I had taken up Elasticity as part of my coursework at my University, it was taught by Ankur Sir. He handles the class really well. Not only does he explain things in a sound manner but also keeps the students interested in the subject matter by introducing a lot of good examples which in turn help us gain more insight. He is also very approachable and very friendly. Clears your doubts be it in class or outside of a classroom. He is also a very good motivator and has a positive influence in the lives of most of the students who took his class. He encouraged us both academic co cirriculuar activities. He was also my B.E final year project guide and was really helpful. I personally enjoyed his class and learned a lot of things and as my project guide, he was really helpful. In conclusion what I'd like to point out is that he is really an excellent Teacher, Technically sound and very friendly.


He is technically very sound.
Have clear fundamentals.
He can explain complex concepts in a very simple and effective way with supportive practical examples which anyone can remember for long.
Last but not the least, he is a very student friendly faculty, who helps in resolving various issues apart from academics also.


I was taught FEM by Ankur sir during my bachelor's. Very good understanding of the subject(s) and has a way of explaining that all of us understood easily.
I definitely would recommend him for the classes on superprof!


I would like to start my review by stating it was a great opportunity to have a course with Ankur Sir. He taught Finite Element Analysis during my Mechanical bachelor's at PES University and is my favorite subject till date. Ankur sir takes time and prepares great notes, makes you solve problems in class making sure you are strong in your Fundamentals. He made time for everyone in a class of 80 and tries to get to everyone's doubts and questions. Even if he couldn't answer our questions due to lack of class time, we could approach him during breaks and also send emails to which he replied promptly. I totally recommend anyone who's looking to take a course under Ankur Sir!


Mr. Ankur thought me Aircraft Structures when I took classes at a GATE coaching center in Bangalore. I would quote him as Perfect teacher, who not only explained the concepts right from the basics, but also brought about immense motivation in me and others. Aircraft Structures being one of the most difficult course in Aerospace Engg, was thought with such an ease that even I started loving the subject, and landed up taking Structures and Materials as my concentration in Aerosapce Engineering at Embry Riddle Aeronautical, University, Florida. I still carry few of his notes with me to refer back. I would recommend Mr. Ankur as a smart and knowledgeable person, with exceptional teaching capability, who can not just study and explain concepts the way a student wants to learn, but also make the classes more entertaining and interactive with talks on sports (especially football!) and funny incidents.
