More than the awards and recognition given by institutions, it is the reviews of the students that matter the most. Here are a few testimonials of trainees who attended the courses of Mr. Prakash V Kulkarni.

Mr. Ashok Bhat

IT Professional, Bengaluru

I attended Kulkarni Sir’s classes as a kid in 1991-92. The classes impacted me so much that I wanted my kids also to learn from Sir. I was extremely happy when Sir started online classes as both my kids could attend the classes and experience the uniqueness of his teaching. My kids too loved attending his classes.

Ms. Siri Chandana

Student, Ballari

Kulkarni Sir’s classes have helped me in easily understanding English Grammar concepts. It has increased my confidence level while preparing for my 10th standard exams as well as conversing in English language.

Mr. Raveendra Acharya

A Qualified Astrologer and Yoga teacher, Hubballi

I came to know about Sir through a mutual friend and I decided to attend his classes. Completing 3 months’ course in English Grammar and Spoken English immensely boosted my self-confidence and helped me take my knowledge of astrology and yogic healing to a greater audience.

Mrs. Tulasi Lakshmi


With an aim to crack the IAS/KAS exams, I approached Kulkarni Sir for his expertise in English and Geography. After rigorous coaching under him for several months, I am glad to say that I cracked the KAS exam and I am currently serving in Department of Women and Child Welfare, Government of Karnataka. The courses not only helped me crack KAS but also helped to guide my children in their studies.
