Personalised Online Coaching…

Nurturing students to fulfil their potential

About Us


Our Mission

To provide personalised (1-to-1) online coaching for Shishyas (students) to develop higher-order thinking through interactive sessions with trained Gurus (teachers) in a professional setup, always keeping the Shishya at the core.

Shishyalaya was born out of a passion for education and a deep appreciation of the difference a good teacher can make to a student's learning journey. We provide a nurturing learning environment for our Shishyas, with each Shishya's unique learning needs at the core of the process. We also aim to inculcate a lifelong learning mindset in Shishyas while reaping the unique benefits of the Guru-Shishya bond.

Shisyalaya has been a turning point in my son's life . I truly appreciate the warmth, care and patience exhibited by the Guru during the teaching process which has helped my son develop a positive attitude towards learning. Thanks again for this wonderful experience and looking forward to enjoying this journey with Shishyalaya.

Parents of a 10-year-old learning Math and English (Chennai, India)

My son has been taking English tuitions from Shishyalaya for the past 2 years. I am impressed by the way Shishyalaya is organised but at the same time flexible per child’s needs. My son who was struggling with English has made a good progress.

Keep up the good work!
