Lawrence Kanyan

I am teaching this course as a part of an overall series on geology courses for competitive examinations. I secured AIR-1 in 2017 Geology and Geophysics GATE examination. I am an IIT Roorkee Graduate. I have previously worked for Shell, ONGC and the University of Texas at Austin. I have performed in exceptionally well in other standardised examinations such as GMAT (780/800), GRE (330/340), TOEFL (117/120), IIT-JEE and Medical examinations. I know what it takes to learn subjects in a manner that you do not forget those ever.

For someone like myself, who is not so good in structural geology, this course is very effective & fruitful !!! I think it is the best possible way to learn structural geology from scratch. Sir has put a lot of effort and ensured that various option are available to suit different learning style. He has shared every bit of his knowledge selflessly. He also showed examples from Google earth pro, which helped me visualize the problem. The live lecture session are extremely helpful and interactive. He makes sure every topic is covered and asks us qs afterwards. He also is very responsive to every qs & clears out every little doubt of us. He pays attention to each and every one of us. Thank you
