Mr. Anees Hussain
Hussain was born in Karachi, in 1941 and lived here
for a brief period till his father was made "Dewan
Sahib" or Prime Minister of Junagadh State. He
stayed in Junagadh, India, till Partition.
He received his primary education at the Karachi Grammar
School, from where he did his Ordinary (O) levels, and
then proceeded to England for his Advanced (A) Levels.
he moved on to Cambridge from where he obtained an Engineering
degree. Coming back to Karachi, he stayed there for a
year and then proceeded to Columbia University for a Masters
in Industrial Engineering. While doing his Masters, he
also studied for a degree in Business Administration at
Columbia's Graduate School of Business, and at the end
of four years, graduated with a Masters of Philosophy
in Business Administration as well as a Master of Science
in Industrial Engineering. While working towards his degrees,
he took 28 graduate courses, achieving 26 As and 2 Bs,
thus earning him a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.94.
He was awarded the Ford Foundation Fellowship for Doctoral
Studies in Business Administration.
At the same time, he was offered a teaching position at
the Graduate School of Business, Columbia. This was indeed
a high honour bestowed upon a twenty-six year old Pakistani,
who would be teaching a class with an average age of twenty
nine years. Mr. Hussain discovered his passion in teaching,
and got so involved that he never managed to finish his
final thesis for the Ph.D.
Very early on in his teaching career, he became one of
the top professors of the Graduate School of Business,
and for 11 trimesters in a row was ranked first, second
or third out of 110 faculty members in the teacher's evaluation
conducted by the student body.
On returning to Pakistan, Mr. Hussain established his
tuition center in Karachi in 1989 with the aim of making
the pursuit of education a fun-filled and intriguing experience
for the young scholars of this country. His method of
teaching, so successful in Columbia, soon gained favour
amongst the youth of the city and within a year his students
were achieving unheard-of success rates.
He has now been preparing students for international certification
examinations, as well as entrance tests to numerous local
universities since 1989, during which he has also taught
in some of the best schools of Karachi such as Karachi
Grammar School, The Lyceum School, City School, Beaconhouse
Public School, International School of Karachi, College
of Business Management (CBM) Karachi, Asian Management
Institute (AMI) and Griffith College. However, his mission
is to get children into the colleges of their choice,
which is also the primary purpose of his tuition centers.
