Abshaar Narvel

From Student to Teacher to Surgeon

What better testimonial to A Grade Ahead’s program than a former student coming back to our program as a teacher while prepping for medical school.  Abshaar Narvel first walked through A Grade Ahead’s doors in 2006 as a student. After excelling in middle and high school, she went on to attend The Ohio State University. “A Grade Ahead challenged and motivated me to improve and compete with myself to become even better.”

Abshaar is now in medical school specializing in ankle surgery at Rosalind Franklin School of Podiatric Medicine in Chicago and credits A Grade Ahead with helping make her goals a reality.  “A Grade Ahead challenges students to higher goals and keeps students motivated. I owe A Grade Ahead for my academic success!”

Varun Patel

From Standout Student to SAT Success

Varun Patel’s parents knew what they wanted most for their son: educational success. They enrolled Varun in A Grade Ahead at the age of 5 and began seeing academic results quickly. “My grades started increasing at such a fast pace, it made my dad’s head spin,” Varun reflects on his time at A Grade Ahead.

As he continued with A Grade Ahead over the years, Varun became a standout student, receiving top student awards as well as perfect scores on tests.

“The knowledge I received at A Grade Ahead unequivocally transformed my academic career in elementary, middle school, and high school, but the true testimonial to this program was in my SAT scoring,” says Varun. He scored in the 99th percentile on his SAT.

“Studying with A Grade Ahead helped me build a strong foundation that I continue to build on, even to this very day. This program allowed me to reach heights that I never knew would be possible!”

Meet Our Founders: Meenal and Parag Singhal

Parag and Meenal Singhal - Founders, MathWizardIn 2001, when Parag and Meenal looked to supplement their son Akshat’s public school education with a tutoring or after-school enrichment program, they were not satisfied with the available options. They did not want an after-school program with monotonous drills. They were looking for a program that promoted analytical thinking and problem solving. Not finding the right answer, the Singhals decided to create their own worksheets and materials. Soon, friends and family began asking if they could also use the material for their children.

While still working full-time jobs, the couple began mailing worksheets around the nation and created a small operation in their basement to fulfill the requests. Realizing there was an untapped need, Parag quit his job to focus on creating the type of educational enrichment program he and his wife (and many others) wanted. The company, originally called MathWizard, was immediately successful. They added English, science, and enrichment camp curriculum through the years and in 2016 the company name was changed to A Grade Ahead to reflect the expanded program offerings.

To date, A Grade Ahead has provided after-school academic enrichment (better than tutoring!) to more than 29,000 students across the country, helping them reach their goals in school and life.
