English language skills in written and spoken forms are most important in almost all the sectors of professional verticals. It helps in smooth communication, simplifies education, builds confidence, boosts self-esteem, maximizes job opportunities, enhances business potential, and promotes open prospects for multi-level collaboration.

This makes English communication skills the most essential skill for everyone aspiring to make it big in their career and lives. However, learning professional English in the right way in the minimum possible time can be challenging. There arises a strong need for professional English language experts who can train and prepare people to get equipped with the necessary skills and practice.

One English language professional, Dr. Abhilash Modi, has created a benchmark of offering the right training and guidance in equipping scores of professionals, businessmen, students, etc. He is the Founder of TILS-The Institute of Languages and Skills which he started in February 2017 with co-founder Mr. Abhishek Kankria.

Please tell us about the saga of TILS Education since its inception.

TILS – The Institute of Language and Skills, popularly known as TILS Education was founded in 2017 in its February month. Its founders Mr. Abhishek Kankria & I initiated the venture as an endeavor to revolutionize the complete concept of the English language & skills, additionally I also worked on the role of positive Emotions in communication. I already had an enriching experience in the field of teaching, motivation, and edupreneurship of eight years as I started my career in 2010 as a spoken English cum personality development trainer. Similarly, Mr. Kankria was also a certified oracle professional who was into making online and offline software for many small and big-level enterprises.

Preliminarily in two years, TILS did spread its wings in its offline classes only and soon TILS Education synonymized English learning and personality development. It changed the concept of many pessimists who would feel that best-spoken English classes cannot be availed in a city like Bhilwara or a state like Rajasthan.

Meanwhile, the district administration also had a tie-up with TILS to provide spoken English and personality development classes in Bhilwara at many govt. schools. A national-level newspaper also approached us for providing English speaking and personality development classes in one of its educational ventures. It all kept getting added up like the feathers in the hat of TILS and its eminent cohort members.

During these six years of a splendid and remarkable journey, we have succeeded in enrolling thousands of students in our offline and online (pre-recorded and LIVE) classes. TILS houses almost all types of students like school-going students, college students, Chartered Accountants, Company Secretaries, MBAs, Doctors, Ph.D. holders, Govt. Officials, Politicians, Engineers, IIT And IIM Students, Lawyers, Fashion Designers, and Bankers by being in collaboration with many esteemed educational institutes and educators.

TILS is making English learning stress-free and effective for many not just in Rajasthan or India but across the globe (Hungary, Canada, America, Netherlands, Japan, Nepal, Saudi Arabia, UAE, and almost in all the prevailing cities of India) by merging a global-level personality development course in its offline and online spoken English course. TILS education is the only educational start-up in India that works not only just on spoken English fluency and communication of students but also helps its learners to improve their personalities by inculcating Universal Human Values (UHV) in them with a perennial and holistic approach towards life.

What was your inspiration behind venturing into the business arena?

Since my childhood, I had always been a creative person, even when I was a young fellow, I was very proactive, suggestive, and participative. Putting the ideas into action was my passion cum point of satisfaction to satiate my inner readiness. When I was just 15, I started to work. Although I became an English trainer in 2010. Even before starting the educational start-up i.e. TILS, I had had the vast experience of eleven years. At the age of just 26 only, the creativity, and the innovative mindset I was having were being killed by external pressure as people in my surroundings were very reactive and were unable to help me sustain the enthusiasm which I have had since the induction of my life. The primary and root reason to begin my own venture was this only.

Additionally, I have always been inclined more towards society rather than myself or my possessions so I wanted to help the youth in a real manner which may help them not for some events but for their entire life and it was only possible when I get enough responsibility and an arena to showcase and execute my caliber. This profoundness of doing something impactful for the youth enthralled me and my founder to begin and succeed in this enduring but satisfying edupreneurial journey.

What were the initial challenges that you had to surmount to ensure TILS’ success rate reached greater heights?

There was no challenge, but rather an end number of opportunities that helped TILS to sustain its dignity and magnificence despite having a lot of ugly customers in the market arena. We faced almost no noticeable problem when we worked just in our city or state as I already had a great experience in all the domains of it but when we tried to grow mustard on the palm by taking TILS to new heights at the time of introducing the ONLINE classes in it then it was full of endurance.

The perfect blend of education and technology was needed to sustain our dignity on the national or global level which we had built in our district or state. Here, my many students who had become great in English and could improve their personalities helped TILS so much in preparing for the intense course. TILS’ co-founder Mr. Kankria who happens to be a full-stack developer put English knowledge and technology together in such a splendid manner that our online course touched lofty heights very soon and currently we are teaching students from more than twelve countries and 50 cities through our online domain.

As an experienced professional, what would you like to advise the budding aspirants willing to enter the business world?

If you are truly creative, proactive, and have an enthusiastic mind to make the world a rather beautiful place to live then you are born for entrepreneurship, If your driving force is just some monetary gaining then you are going to lead towards a mechanical life where you are going to be shortly anxious within but if you really want to make the things or life easier for others from any of your ideas then you are born to do business or entrepreneurship. Uncertainty in thoughts, instability in work and under confidence in execution make a blend of guaranteed failure.
