The world of education has been disrupted big time due to the pandemic. This has led to the mushrooming of various edtech firms that are providing quality and user-friendly content online. And one such person happens to be Sateesh Konakalla, the founder of Sateesh Academy that helps teachers, entrepreneurs, math enthusiasts, and home-makers become trainers in Vedic Mathematics, Abacus, and phonetics, and handwriting.
Despite laying off teachers and students being put to the test with arduous online classes, many enterprising start-ups have entered the edtech field and are making the job easier for both students and teachers. To them, innovation is the key that helps them make online education the 'new normal.'
Sateesh Academy provides support to individuals and franchises by creating earning opportunities via tutoring or teaching. Vedic Mathematics and Abacus are two ancient methods in huge demand as far as tutors are concerned, and both streams help the students overcome the fear of maths. So, Sateesh Academy, a learning firm in Vedic Mathematics and Abacus training, has tied up with various educational institutions online and offline. The Academy pro-actively promotes the need to learn Vedic mathematics and Abacus.
A native of Hyderabad, Sateesh discovered his passion when he was home-tutoring a BTech student. He realized he wanted to be an ed-entrepreneur in 2011. Since then, he has started three branches in and around Hyderabad. In fact, Sateesh's brainchild Klasses is an innovative platform that connects parents with tutors who have versatile skills to handle the needs of students.
Sateesh Academy has trained over 250 trainers personally, specially chosen by Sateesh. The Academy also supports tutors who have been affected by the pandemic. He and his team strive to nurture students' reasoning and problem-solving skills from a young age.
