the annals of the tutoring industry, an industry
generally perceived as commercialising education.
Launched on the occasion of Achievers Academy’s first
Open Day, their Special Needs Unit – Abilities
Empowered – a Not for Profit Initiative is indeed a
trailblazer. ‘It is the culmination of a long cherished
dream and we are excited at the opportunity of
reaching out and helping the community in our own
small way’, said Founder and Educationist, Prof K Sen
(Kajol) – whose sheer passion, drive and commitment
to this cause were evident.
Achievers Academy is a boutique tutoring institute
that strongly advocates and uses an Interactive
Application Based Teaching Model to foster students’
of March 2014 heralded a new era in
Critical thinking, Understanding and Analysis, as opposed to mere rote memorisation and cramming.
The Mayor of Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Bryne and Mr Mohan Dhall, the CEO of the Australian Tutoring
Association were the guests of honour. The Press was represented by two of Sydney’s premier News
Publications: Mr Vivek Trivedi (Indian Link) and Mr Rohit Revo (Indian Herald) attended the event.
Mr. Mohan Dhall inspired everyone with his talk, outlining the difference between ‘what you achieve
as opposed to what you are’ and the need to find yourself.
The Not for Profit Initiative, Abilities Empowered is envisaged to be a One-Stop Place for Special
Needs students and as Prof K Sen (Kajol) highlighted, it would be possible only through close and
active engagement and partnership with schools, health practitioners and special needs experts.
