Saraswati is synonymous amongst the student fraternity with ‘The Gyanfoundation’, hence every 3rd call we get in our office is for Saraswati Consulting. Saraswati is a thorough professional yet doesn’t see students as a big mass of young people. Her professional responsibility integrity, uncompromising the standards of discipline have advanced the students’ academic and professional goals. She recognizes every student’s giftedness and becomes their counsellor, mentor, guide, and motivator from the time they register till they reach the USA. She started teaching in the early 80’s and her passion and dedication to the field of education have been exceptional.
For more than a decade, she is accepted as one of the most knowledgeable and ethical counsellors in Mumbai for study-abroad. Meeting her and working with her has been a life-changing experience for students and it is gratifying to record that the students who come to us for counselling year after year are through “word of mouth”
Dear Students and Parents,
Greetings!!!! I have to congratulate you all for taking this step. While it is a step which brings along a great deal of excitement, let me tell you that it also gets along a lot of ups and downs if not done in the right earnestness. Students on their part have to be ready both physically and mentally to undertake this journey and parents have to be ready on their part to undertake the financial aspect.
At Gyanfoundation, this journey for students starts with meeting me for a non-obligatory meeting to get an overview of the entire counseling process. This meeting is generally absolutely free and non-obligatory.
Some of you might join me after taking the GRE or relevant competitive exams and others before taking them. If you need help with GRE or GMAT, please call Sridhar who head our ‘Test Prep’ Unit. His details are mentioned in the ‘Contact Us‘ page and ‘Our GRE/ GMAT Classes‘ Page. GRE/GMAT training is an additional service offered by us.
If you have already finished your GRE you can enroll with us for counselling services. We then take up the responsibility of hand holding them through the entire process. The student is briefed about the paperwork involved, academic and financial documents to be collected and of course the college selection procedure. The student is taught how to identify the schools and programs of his choice through extensive research of the various college and university websites. The parents are also briefed about the entire process and the financial implications on their part.
The student is then put to Saraswati who then takes up the responsibility of seeing the student successfully through the entire process till the visa counter and beyond. Saraswati then looks into the college selection, the processes involved in the applications and admissions and the visas ably assisted by Deepa, Sridhar and Viswanath at different points of time. The team members – each has relevant experience.The Quality Assurance – will be managed by me.
