About Monica

My name is Monica and I have 3 years experience working with students in a high school setting, teaching the Sanskrit alphabet. I believe anyone can learn anything at any stage of their lives. They need to be supported in their learning process in the right way. I believe in empowering my students in their own learning processes so they can own what they learn.

Having raised my own children, and having worked in the K-12 environment for over 10 years, I am capable of empathizing with educators, parents and students. I understand that it takes a village to raise a child. I am capable of being part of the team that will help your child. I offer beginner Hindi lessons to students 5yrs and above. I teach adults as well. I have an undergraduate degree in English literature and have been editing, proof reading, and writing for the past 26 years. I have also undertaken translations from Hindi to English.

My way of teaching is hands-on and a lot of emphasis on phonics. I believe in breaking up the tutoring time into different parts and including a little time for interaction with my students about their daily lives, encouraging them to share. When I teach Hindi, I include my students' interests in my classes.

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.

English

I am good at teaching English to new or foreign students, being an Indian myself. Phonetics and pronunciation are my forte, as well as spelling and sentence building. I am good with students of all ages, as long as they need help at the Beginner's level. Many people know English but are hesitant to speak it. That is where I come in to build your confidence.

Reading

I can teach students reading through phonics or sound. I can also help them appreciate the written word and inculcate an interest in reading.

Writing

Writing starts with sentence construction-- teaching elementary students or students who have a challenge with understanding how to write paragraphs and figure out spellings. Expression of self is a big challenge with most students today. I work on that to help them express themselves better.
