About Kalyan C Dudala

As a teacher for a major standardized prep company, Kalyan has helped hundreds of students better their LSAT scores, some by as many as 20 points. He has graduate degrees in Evolutionary Biology (Iowa State), Genetics (Columbia), and Economics (CUNY). Having spent more time in classrooms than most people, he has been exposed to a wide variety of teaching styles, ranging from small classes that employed the Socratic Method to massive lecture courses in cavernous halls comprising over 100 students. He is a firm believer in the transformative power of virtual learning and hopes to bring it to demographics where the need for excellent teachers is greatest.

Feedback from past students:

"Kalyan was clear and articulate, and presented the material
logically and in a straightforward manner. I could hear his voice in
my head as I took the exam."


"Kalyan was engaging and really encouraged everyone to participate
in class. His personality was also flexible and it contributed to fun
and light-hearted class time experience."


"Very patient. Almost always on point with everything and when he
wasn't he went back and corrected it."


"Kalyan did an excellent job of balancing the skill levels of the
various students in the class, and of covering material in an
efficient manner. He was also good about balancing the class content
with questions from the class, and about which questions he selected
to address and which ones he pushed to the TA. I preferred his style
over the others that I occasionally caught on-demand."


"My instructor is knowledgeable and well prepared for the topics and
lecture structures as a whole."


"He was great, couldn't have asked for a better experience. I only
wish we had more lessons so that I could continue to improve more. My
score has gone up about 10 points so far."
