About Nandan

I have been teaching English at all levels (K-12, undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate levels) for the last 25 years. I have taught students from all over the world with varying levels of competency. I have trained other teachers, in addition to teaching my own students.

I love teaching. It is what I have done most of my adult life. I break down each concept into small parts so that students can understand every part of it before applying the concept to solve a problem. I have created standardized formats for large groups of students. But I have also customized lesson plans for individual students. So, let me know what your needs are and I will make sure that I meet your individual needs in the most effective way possible.

I have taught every level and every type of English (academic, professional, and business). Having worked with all ages of students from all over the world, I feel that I have an excellent understanding of each student's needs.

I was born and brought up in India, and speak Hindi as a native language. In addition, of course, I learned Hindi in school and in college.

Whatever your needs -- short-term or long-term -- let me know what they are and I will craft a plan to help you. I'm open to teaching at your home and also online. I can guarantee that any student who follows the plan I set out for him or her will surely progress and improve, not only in English but in all other subjects as well. I look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently teaching K-6 students under the SES program in California. I have worked with SES system for 2 years, so far. I have also taught K-12 students in the past, in Florida, where I lived for a little over 25 years. I have taken graduate courses in Education and done very well there. I enjoy working with K-12 students and watching them get better each day that I work with them.

Handwriting

I have taught handwriting to young children, using books and resources specific to that purpose. I teach children to write in cursive and print, in upper-case and in lower-case. They also learn how to properly space letters and words and how to indent at the beginning of a paragraph. In addition, I teach the art of calligraphy to adults.

Hindi

I am fluent in Hindi. I lived in India for 25 years and learned Hindi in school and also in college. I passed a college-level Hindi exam in New Delhi, where the level of spoken and written Hindi is higher than in the rest of India and possibly the rest of the world. I have also written poems in Hindi and translated stories from Hindi to English.

Public Speaking

I have taught Public Speaking at the college and university level for several years. I have also helped CEOs and other executives draft and practice their speeches. In addition, I have taught debate to high school and college students and won some debate competitions myself.
