Devyani tutored our 18 y.o. this summer to help him brush up on his high school French before college. She and our son developed a wonderful working relationship that met our every wish for the tutoring experience. Devyani was thorough and professional but also friendly and approachable. Our son enjoyed their meetings and profited tremendously from her instruction and homework assignments. She enhanced his confidence and comfort with French for which we (and he!) are so pleased. Devyani is the best tutor we've ever hired.
Devyani is a good tutor. My son really likes it and he is always looking forward to have a lesson with her. She works with him patiently and is very knowledgeable on what she is teaching. Always recommend her.
Devyani is very patient with kids, thoroughly understands kids needs, and takes efforts in preplanning each lesson.
She evaluates the kids on her own instead of relying on the feedback given by their previous teachers. Once she grasps their level, she starts challenging them slowly and this makes the lesson very interesting for the kids.
After each lesson she provides feedback to the parents on how their kid is progressing.
Devyani did an excellent job in teaching French for my son, 6th grader. Within a month, we have seen a huge improvement in the grade report.
After getting the French tutorial class from Devyani, my son was more confident and felt he can now handle it very well. She is very patient, enforces sincere work ethics and tries to get best out of the student. Thank you Devyani for all the great help.
We hired Devyani for French. My daughter wanted a quick review on French 1 lessons during summer before starting with French 2. They reviewed grammar together and my daughter is now feeling very confident.
Devyani is very adaptive and quickly came up with a tailor-made plan based on my daughter's needs. My daughter is very happy with her teaching style and looking forward to learn more from her.
I would highly recommend Devyani as a French tutor.
Devyani met with my son the first time and was very patient in her interactions with him. She asked him about the areas that he wanted to improve in, what he was doing in school on the subject, and also how he wanted to move forward. She then came up with a plan, and also taught him his first lesson. My son said he was comfortable with her and believes that he would learn a lot from her.
Medha liked her teaching method and looking forward to enhance her skills in the areas that she currently needs some improvements.
My daughter needed a last minute tutoring session for a test she had the following day. Devyani came to the rescue even though she went through heavy traffic to come to our home.
My daughter found her very helpful and asked for Devyani to return for another tutoring session. Again, Devyani was very prompt with her response and availability.
I felt she really cares for my daughters educational needs.
Devyani met with my son for the first time and was very patient. She is very responsible and caring. My son feels comfortable when Devyani is around since he's a bit shy. He can't wait for her to come over again. Devyani was very encouraging to my son. Thank you so much Devyani for making my son feel comfortable and confident.
I would highly recommend Ms.Devyani as a French tutor. She was one of the best tutors my son had in his 8th grade. As a tutor she really goes out of her way to make sure the child is understanding and getting to learn the subject well.
She definitely helped my son to get better grades.
She provides constructive feedback and closely monitors progress of students.
We were lucky to get Devyani at the right time. My daughter needed a quick review and assistance to give her entrance test for her French 2 Honors. Devyani guided us well and helped us get the right textbooks and work books. She built our daughter's confidence and very patiently got her to write creative essays and read passages all the while correcting her grammar and punctuation. She was dependable and always ready to hear us out. She was very adaptable to our time changes as we were constantly on the run with school, tuition and other classes. She did an incredible job in a short time and for that we are very grateful. We wish her all the very best in her endeavors.
Thank you Monaaz for your words of appreciation !
Your involvement in your children's education and activities is commendable. You were always prompt in acting on suggestions and fulfilling requirements for our lessons. That is what is conducive for teachers like us to deliver the best results and bring out the best in our students.
I wish your children success in all their endeavors!

Daveyani is a patient and very helpful tutor. She is been teaching my son French and he had improved his understanding of French tremendously and doing much better in school. She is very sincere and wants her students to do good. She is also very flexible in timing. She is a great tutor and I highly recommend her.
We wanted a tutor for grade improvement and Devyani was a perfect choice. Immediately after the first few lessons we saw improvements in outcome of tests and quizzes. Devyani is patient and keeps the right pace. She also works on weak areas and builds confidence in her students. She is easily accessible to parents and students.
I am a working professional in my mid 20’s, and wanted to learn conversational Hindi to impress my in-laws. I came to Devyani 7 months ago, having zero experience learning a second language. Since starting lessons with Devyani, she has exceeded my expectations in a short period in time, having gained comfortable grasp on the basics of conversational Hindi.
I am no longer the token ‘gori’ (white girl) in the room, as I am able to talk to strangers in Hindi on the general conversational topics (family, work, basic info, holidays & FOOD) that we have gone over during our lessons. Rather than fixate on teaching me colors and names of animals, Devyani has done an excellent job tailoring our sessions to meet my needs as an adult.
The last time I was in school, I was suffering from a bad case of ‘senioritis’ at SJSU. Despite suffering from senioritis in the past, I always come to her lessons excited and eager to learn. She is a great motivator, and you can tell that she loves her profession as a teacher, by her positive and engaging attitude during every lesson.
Devyani has been a great French tutor for our daughter. She has been kind and patient in her approach. She is very prompt with commitments. Well organized and well structured courses. Good course material. Our daughter has been happy and looks forward to the teaching sessions.
Ms. Devyani has worked with my two boys for a long time. She helps them with writing, reading comprehension, and vocabulary. She is very responsible to make sure that student is understanding the lesson and material taught.
She fully used the time allocated for tutoring, finding all kinds of things to cover the area of tutoring. She is also very patient and nice to my boys (based on their comments). I always see her encouraging them with a very positive attitude. She is good tutor, and I will recommend her.
I am writing to highly recommend Devyani G. Earlier this year, my son transferred to a small high school that did not offer French. Therefore, he had to enroll in an online course to complete his final semester. Since no one at home speaks French, I enlisted the help of a tutor for the first time. Devyani contacted us immediately and got us right on track. She adapted to my son’s curriculum and kept him focused and on task for biweekly hour-long (sometimes longer) sessions; quite a feat since my son is easily distracted. It was clear from the beginning that Devyani is not just a skilled French teacher; she has a love of the French language and culture. As a result, her sessions with my son were engaging (I even caught myself eavesdropping) and memorable. My son often shares facts about French art, music, etc. that he learned in his sessions, and by the way, he ended up with an “A” in the course. Devyani’s strength is her versatility. Because she is so competent, she is equipped to challenge gifted students as well as those who need extra help.
Thanks Devyani. The kids are now much more confident about their oral tests.
Thanks for your patience and approach to make things easier to understand.
My driving force is to see my students excel, and see their confidence go up. I want them to enjoy the journey as much as I have, and still do.
When my efforts are appreciated, it gives me one more reason to continue to give it my best. Thank you for your kind words. I wish my students all the very best!
It's been more than 3 months since my daughter started French and general tutoring lessons with Devyani. She really enjoys the lessons to the point that I can "threaten" to stop these lessons if she doesn't behave. Devyani is patient and knows how to make an 8 year old interested and engaged. My daughter loves the French lessons and even seems to enjoy doing the homework assignments from Devyani, which is surprising to me, but a pleasant surprise.
Lin, let me first congratulate you for having such a bright and intelligent daughter. Her grasping and retaining capabilities amaze me, and I can see that she will definitely have a very bright future.
I thoroughly enjoy the time that I spend tutoring her, and time just flies by! I wish her lots more years of learning, and eventually a great deal of success.
Devyani is teaching my daughter French and advanced Hindi language for last 5 months. She is making remarkable progress in both the subjects. She knows the subjects really well and she creates the right structure depending on the student. She sets a goal and helps my daughter to achieve it. She keeps us updated about the progress of the student. She involves and guides us in decision making. She sets the right expectation not only to the student but also to the parents so we always know what is expected out of us to make this program successful.
We are really lucky to have Devyani as our daughter's teacher.
I really appreciate your involvement towards the betterment of your daughter's education and your endeavor to give her a well-rounded personality. Hindi will keep her connected to her roots and French will give her the opportunity to learn world cultures, as well as give an edge to her personality.
Thanks for always extending your support and understanding to all my advice and requests, whenever our lessons are concerned. You can count on me as long as she needs me!
So far after the first session my son is very happy with Devyani. They reviewed for an upcoming test and he feels confident with them reviewing together, also he feels that he did well on this particular test (but has not gotten the results yet). Devyani was very encouraging and reassuring to my son (the reassurance helps him a lot because he's a bit shy and quiet).
We look forward in continuing working with her as she's becoming part of this family. Thank you so much Devyani for making my son feel comfortable and confident with his school review.
Thank you Pearl, for your kind words of appreciation. The children and you can always count on me. I would be extremely happy to be of all help to your children. I wish them both all the very best in all their endeavors.
Mrs. G. has been very patient with my kid. She carefully reviewed his work and led him to corrections, with examples. She gave him some topics to work on and diligently followed up on his work. I sincerely recommend her to any parent looking for a tutor who knows how to work with kids.
Devyani is an awesome French teacher! She speaks excellent French and is very patient and dedicated teacher. We are very satisfied with our lessons with her.
Thank you for your words of appreciation Arathi! This is what keeps us educators going. I must compliment your children too for their good manners, intelligence, and sincerity. I wish them all the very best in all their endeavors.
I wanted to resurrect my French after many years before taking a trip to France. Devyani was very helpful and covered the basics that I am likely to encounter on my voyage. Her accent is excellent and unlike a text book she knows all the nuances. I am sure my tutorials with her will greatly enhance my enjoyment on my trip.
Very confident and patient with my kid. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
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.
I have 12 years of experience in tutoring and classroom teaching where I taught students from 7 years of age and above. I have special training in teaching children (7-12 years) and adolescents (13-18) and I am very well versed with the techniques and tools for teaching young children including learning through games. I have myself studied English for 16 years and am very confident about the subject. Teaching young students is a passion and an area of very special interest to me.
I have been in the teaching profession for the last 12 years. I have taught students of all ages and backgrounds. I not only help them with their school and college curriculum but also help them prepare for all types of tests and interviews. I draw great satisfaction by being in this profession and making a positive difference to many lives. I thrive to help and guide my students and see them excel in their respective fields.
I have been working as a professor of French with a very reputed and international institute for the last 12 years. I have taught, tutored and guided several students to the objectives they have set for themselves. I tutor from beginner to very high levels of French; from school, college and university curriculum to professionals and corporates. I prepare students for various exams including DELF and DALF exams. I also prepare candidates for all kinds of interviews including consulate interviews, etc. My students have always shown remarkable and quick improvement in the subject. Working together with me has always inculcated great interest in them for the subject and they are always willing to learn more!
I have spent all my educational years in India and a large part of my professional life too in the same country. I have studied Hindi for 12 years, from elementary to high school level.The first language in my school had always been Hindi. Hence I have a good command over the language, be it written, reading or verbal skills as well as Hindi grammar.
In the United States, our home away from home, lets keep our children connected to their roots. Let us teach them Hindi!
I have been tutoring students for the last 12 years and have undergone extensive and continuous training to keep myself abreast with the latest techniques of teaching. Having studied in an English medium school throughout my 16 student years gives me the confidence that I have, about my competence to teach Phonics to my students.
I have studied in a school, college and university where the medium of teaching has throughout been English. I have been tutoring for the last 12 years. These long years of connection with the English language gives me the confidence that I have, for providing excellent guidance to my students for attaining desired results very rapidly.
My long years of classroom teaching and tutoring experience, 12 years to be precise, gives me the competence to quickly identify a student's problem area and find the right solution for it. I make it understood to the student and chalk out a study plan. I see to it that the study plan is executed immediately and effectively. I evaluate the student continuously to assure that the student is grasping the subject and is progressing in the right direction.
