Excerpt from INDIA ABROAD, March 31, 2006: [Dissatisfied with available
SAT preparation options] “Dasigi decided to teach SAT prep classes, only making them
more interactive, including additional tips, and keeping the interest high among
students by talking their language – having a brainstorming session about Harry Potter,
for instance… Though [the course] takes place at the temple, it is open to anyone.
People who are neither Hindus nor Indians are also welcome.”
Excerpt from KHABAR, October 2007: “Doing well in SAT depends as much on
attitude as on aptitude… The main point Dr. Dasigi stressed on was ‘Practice,’ along
with good reasoning.”
