I am a curie student, and have been attending the program for 2 years. In these 2 years I mainly focused on PSAT and TJ prep. This course is specially designed to help the student achive success in the test, and I feel it was really worth it. Our teacher (Dr. Mulpuri Rao) gave us many many classes in order to confirm our success. First we take a PSAT or TJ test early in the morning on Saturday, then we have weeked classes for basic material review which is Saturdays and Fridays, Then on Sunday, we have essay writting practice class for 1 hour, then Dr. Rao's logical reasoning class for another hour. And finally on Wednesday, we have a grammer review for one hour and a TJ/PSAT review session. I took the PSAT confidently because I knew I was ready.
On the other hand, I also agree this program lacks a little structure. Dr. Rao is the math teacher for 8th, and 7th grade which is almost 200 students plus. He is hectic and gets multiple calls from other teachers and parents and seems as if he cannot handle it. But recently, I could see he is adding new staff members in spite of the growing bussiness, and is also expanding his centers. The sterling center was closed down, and replaced with a huge school with big classrooms and a huge hall.
I would definently reccommend this program to anyone with the need for advanced math/english or AOS and TJ prep.
never ever go there, Please... When I inquired the person said the seats will be filled fast and urged me to pay the yearly fees for my daughtere's I grade. i did. I did for one location which is near by. I also asked the question 100 times about how many more registration so that my daughter will not be alone.They said cannot count but there are lot more. Just before a week for the class , I have got the email from the center that the timings may get chnages and will be announced later. I was so suprised. what if my daughter has the other class on the same time. why did not they tell before getting the fees. One day evening one lady called me and told me the class is going on. I was like what ? she said she forget to send the email about the updated schedule and apologized.. I did take my daughter and attended the class.but 100 questions in my mind ? then lhe lady gave me the slip saying one day here and sunday afternoon in ashburn. I have told her my daughter has other class on sunday and she cannot attend .,But they didnot care about what I said. she said if you have any concerns call Dr Rao. I called him 100 times and never ever pickup the phone.when he picked up one time he said we are in different place call me in the evening.then call me to herndon office., then when I called him herndon office he said 10 parents are in front of me .. I cannot answer you.. email you.,... I was frustrated... for 3 weeks it happened the same way and my daughter did not attend one class at all, what a professionalism . then after 3 week the teacher called me and told me she is resigning... then they called me 10 times the same day and told me I can come to herndon otherwise can get back the fees except one month. I have asked them why do I need to pay one month fees when there was no classes. The lady told me Dr Rao still needs to pay the salary. Am I his financier ? Still waiting for the fees from them. But very very poor center. No professional service.
