Phani Kumar is a very hands-on teacher and believes that the learning environment should be very creative and interactive. Phani Kumar’s teaching style is based on the belief that conceptual clarity is the most important of all. “Get the concepts clear,” he says, “and all else will follow!” He believes that the art of teaching lies in clarifying concepts in the simplest way so that the students face least stress while studying. “Once they get their concepts right, they can apply them to anything,” he feels.

Phani Kumar likes playing chess and listening to music in his leisure time. He also enjoys playing shuttle badminton and often enjoys a game with the students after classes.
