Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drawing

I have been an artist ( drawing & painting) for the past 15 years. I have held several art exhibitions in the past. I have taught children art from the age groups of 6 to 14. Art not only enhances one's talent but also brings joy & creativity.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked as a Certified Sylvan English/Math tutor for the past 3 years for Elementary School children K-5 grades. It is an absolute pleasure working with children assisting and helping them achieve their goals and encouraging them in their subjects of improvement.

Painting

I have loved to draw and paint since I was a little girl. I achieved a National Award for painting when I was in Middle School. I pursued my passion for art over the years taking various classes in pastels, water colors,pencil art and acrylics. I have worked on many a paintings in my life time a I exhibited my paintings in the Sunnyvale Art Gallery in Dec 2010. I currently have an acrylic original painting in the Big Basin Cafe in Downtown Saratoga which is for sale.

I have held art classes for children between the ages of 4 and 12 years. Art is a great passage way for children to express their inner most feelings. It is known to be a great way to relieve stress. Art can bring joy and happiness in this otherwise stressful world. I believe that your child will have the time of his/her life when they learn art from me. Try it out & you will see!

(Classes will be held @ my residence only, due to the amount of materials used during the classes. Most materials will be provided by me).

Phonics

I have worked as a preschool teacher and an elementary school tutor for many years now. I have seen the amazing improvement in children's reading skills while teaching them the use of phonics. There is great joy and relief for parents when they watch their children reading with confidence and ease. Give your child the best opportunity by having them experience what i call "The Joy of Reading".
Kindly contact me if you are interested in having me as your child's tutor.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking is indeed a fabulous asset in building one's own personality, self confidence and social presence. It also gives one an opportunity to express thoughts, feelings and ideas about a subject. People who were otherwise shy have seen complete transformation in their communication skills and sense of expression. In a country that believes in freedom of speech and expression, Public Speaking is a great skill to develop.

Public speaking was one of my passions in school and college. Therefore I attended a two year course in Public Speaking at school and started getting better at it every time. I got several opportunities to represent my school and college at numerous competitions and bagged several shields and prizes.It not only helped me in overcoming fears of talking before a large audience but helped me think about numerous topics that i would not have otherwise given much attention. Public Speaking did wonders for me and I'm sure it'll do the same for you.

Study Skills

Study Skills are approaches to varied skills of learning. It includes developing a schedule, organization, time management, discipline, effective listening, explaining what you have understood, note taking,using of flashcards, continued and planned study, recitation, revision, usage of computer, media or picture books to understand the concept. There are various approaches to Study Skills and they can be personally designed to satisfy each individual need. Therefore, I believe in planning a personalized Study Skill for each student depending on their temperament and self improvement strategy.

I have used different Study Skill sets throughout my academic years and it definitely had a positive impact not only in the field of education but also on my personality. I'm sure it will do the same for you. I can help you develop your study skills.
