You child probably needs a customized education plan.

K-12 students enjoy working with me because I focus on problem solving with positive guidance. They become motivated, confident, happier, and improve academically! Lesson plans and constructive feedback are tailored to each student.

My life experience includes working in multicultural societies, international and local schools. I am effective with students with diverse backgrounds and learning styles. I founded and operated Mindsprings, an educational company that customized programs to meet the students’ needs.

The first tutoring session is free of charge. Its purpose is for the student and I to assess each other. We work together to understand the student's learning style and customize a program for him or her.

Reading
The Orton-Gillingham based reading systems, like Wilson Methods and Lindamood Bell, helped Adam, an 8 year old student who couldn't read. He could read simple chapter books in 6 months.

Writing
Word lists, demonstrations, using technology, all helped seventh grader Hannah, who was refusing to write. In one month, she wrote paragraphs independently and willingly. As a published writer and college level language tutor, solving writing problems is a pleasure.

SAT/ ACT/ PSAT/TOEFL
Test Prep for students is mapped by assessing student strengths and areas to improve. 12th grader Varun has improved his SAT essay performance by 2 points!

I hold a Masters in Psychology and certifications in Creative Writing, Learning Disabilities and Gifted Education.

Parents are welcomed to audit all classes, after the first one!

Public Speaking

Did you know that the No. 1 fear most people have is of public speaking? Death is less fearful to many people! I aim to demystify public speaking by increasing confidence and managing anxiety. I have been a public speaker since high school. I started conducting professional development workshops for teacher trainers at the age of 26, and have conducted over 75 teacher training workshops across India. I've spoken on regional and national stages, and know what it takes to overcome nervousness and be successful!

Knowledgeable tutor

Vidushi was helpful to my son to improve his handwriting. I saw a vast difference immediately. I also wanted her to spend time with his study skills. She offered suggestions to improve schoolwork organization and study habits. Although we only had her for two sessions, she seemed to understand teens. It was unfortunate my son was not receptive to the help. I would highly recommend her.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Vidushi has been a God-send for us. My 12 year old son is very bright but was struggling this year with organization, completing assignments properly and the sheer volume of homework. Almost over night he had gone from a mostly As & Bs student to Cs, Ds and Fs. My happy guy had turned into a grumpy, angry stranger because he was so frustrated with school and homework. Within a few short weeks with Vidushi's help my son's grades have already improved from Cs, Ds and Fs to Cs and Bs and he has a much improved attitude toward school.
