Motivating students high on this academy’s agenda

If you are looking to brush up your commerce and sail through in entrance exams of any universities in the commerce subject then Zafar Academy is the right place for you, said Imran Siddiqui, a post graduate in commerce and one of the directors of the institute.

Located at Okhla Head, it is among a few coaching institutes in the locality that has exclusively dedicated itself to commerce subjects, including Economics, he said.

“We organise three test series every month. Besides coaching we make sure to motivate our students. Videos of lectures are made so that in case students miss the class they can go back and watch on YouTube where class videos are parked. Also, we use PPT for visualisation teaching technique,” said Imran, who has been running Zafar Academy for the last five years.


Being brought up in the locality, Imran is well aware of the educational issues of this area. His tryst with giving tuition started years ago when he opened an academy near Shaheen Bagh police station at E 116, 2nd floor and since then he has been guiding students to crack entrance tests of several universities.

Currently, he expanded his centre by opening a new branch at Okhla Head. “After completing my studies, I just thought about what to do best in guiding youngsters in the right direction. And then I decided to start this academy centre,” he said.

Explaining about the job opportunities for students of commerce stream, Md Zafar, another director of the academy, said there is lack of interest among students and parents in Okhla in commerce that has plenty of job prospects in the market.

“Usually, many parents in Okhla prefer their wards to go for science subject which is not wrong as everybody has the right to chose subject of their interest. Commerce subject is being ignored. Let me tell you that a commerce degree opens a plethora of opportunities for candidate as s/he can apply for several job portfolios, like CA, marketing, finance and Economics,” he said.
