Teaching Methodology

For Best results from every student in competitive examinations

Philosophy of CONCEPTREE's Active Learning Model

A teaching methodology based on the core idea that:

It is not the number of problems that you have solved that counts, but your level of understanding that is most important

After an extensive research on learning pedagogies and objectives, the criticality of the above statement is very evident in this era of competitive examinations. CONCEPTREE’s programs are designed based on the minimal approach to overcome the shortcomings in current training models which follow a passive learning model

CONCEPTREE’s programs are firmly designed around the core aspect of successive learning: building from providing conceptual clarity, leading into systematic practice for driving desired results in competitive examinations. This is achieved through active learning methodology which would enable each student to explore/improve/perform to his/her full potential.

Key Issues with Passive Learning Model


Student goes to class with no first hand information or preparedness on the topic. No pre-class orientation is targeted in this model


In-class learning would leave student with gaps in concepts/problem solving abilities. Focus is on syllabus coverage and group based teaching


Students would be going for ill-prepared chapter/topic tests often resulting in lesser performance there by denting their confidence


Student jumps into improper practice mode based on the mandatory assignments/ problems sheets asked for submission in class


Students would be going for ill-prepared chapter/topic tests often resulting in lesser performance there by denting their confidence


Inadequate preparedness for final examinations due to improper revision plan leading to higher stress levels and sub-standard performance

Broad Framework of CONCEPTREE's Active Learning Model

  • Pre-Class (Understanding)

    Students are given specific tasks prior to the class including- watching CONCEPTREE lecture videos, reading the material and working out the material questions along with taking up CONCEPT Test. These tasks would help in getting basic understanding about the topic/orientation.

  • In-Class (Application)

    Students would get immensely benefited from the active learning - instructor led as well as peer guided. Instructors would be able to provide individual attention to students and address specific gaps in work-session model. In-class descriptive tests would be conduced to monitor the progress.

  • Post-Class (Analysis)

    Re-visiting lecture content to consolidate the concepts, practicing materials and taking up Chapter/Topic based tests on CONCEPTREE Digital to reflect on the preparedness. Student performance in these tests would be monitored to provide individual feedback/ improvement plan.

  • Continuity (Excellence)

    Excellence is only achieved by continuous efforts. Refreshing the learning process at periodic stages via phase tests and full tests is a part of continuous learning process . Students would get online/in-class to cover the gaps at any stage of the program to and excel further.

Advantages of CONCEPTREE's Active Learning Model

Passive Learning Approach

(Followed in normal JEE/NEET/Olympiads Coaching Institutions)

Non emphasis on concepts and misconcepts. Focus only on syllabus coverage and multiple revisions.

Students not having confidence in their degree of conceptual clarity

Blind problem-solving with emphasis on the number of problems solved. Outcomes are measure in terms of quantum of problems solved.

Students not being able to spot their weak areas in a topic and not knowing how to rectify them.

Need to read through all the portions of the book again and again without proper revision structure which is crucial for the competitive examinations. This would add to preparation stress among students.

Active Learning Approach

(Followed at CONCEPTREE Learning Centers)

Clarity on concepts and misconcepts along with better grip on problem solving approaches

Structured approach to develop problems solving ability in students; concept based questions to straight numericals to advanced application level questions.

Builds more accountability and academic responsibility among students

Better clarity on the strengths and weaknesses of student for himself/herself 

Opportunities to identify the weak areas and attack them specifically during different stages of preparation 

Clear revision map to ensure that final outcomes are in line with preparation expectations
