About Gowri

I started tutoring when I was quite young at the age of 16. Tutoring middle school level English in India was one my hobbies during school years and I realized I love working with kids. Eventually, I began tutoring in a village school in India where I taught English and drawing.
I am extremely outgoing and kids usually love me. I try and make learning fun and love doing fun activities in between learning so that starts enjoy thier overall time spent. I attended a school that ran on the philosophy of teaching without creating fear and that's what I try to bring to students when i teach. I work with them to make them feel confident in whatever they do and learn to enjoy while learning.

I have been passionately doing nature photography for the last 7 years and taught myself Lightroom a few years ago I also took an online course in basics of ligthroom and it is the only editing program I have used since then.

Photography has been my passion for the last 7 years. I did a few courses during high school in black and white photography and compositions. I won a small time award at an exhibition in India and a few of my pictures mine have published in a well known environmental news website called Mongabay.
I was an assistant to my drawing teacher in high school and would help younger students with basic concepts and thier actual drawings in terms of teaching better shading, composition, lines and so on.

I was the fitness leader in my school and now I am learning yoga and I do rockclimbing. I worked at a rockclimbing gym and taught fitness and climbing to young people. I have also been a fitness freak since I was 15 and so I have learned a lot about it since then.
I have also done a ton of needlework, crafts making and jewelry making for many years as a hobby. I know some traditional Indian needlework and jewelry making.

I can teach a varsity of skills whether it's arts, photography, or fitness and I love brining little bits of my culture and traditions to it so you can also learn something rare and special along the way. I love teaching and I am hyper and fun. I am a good listener and a good helper too. Please do contact me if I can be of service in anyway. thank you

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.

Adobe Lightroom

My background with lightroom began with my passion for photography. I have been a nature photographer for the last 5 years and i love the editing aspect of it as well. In order to improve my editing skills i took a basic online course on lightroom and i have also been using it for a few years now which has expanded my understanding of it even more. playing around with an editing software a ton, enables you to learn a lot from it and so i love using it anytime i have pictures. lightroom is the only program i ever use now.

Fitness

I love fitness and this drives me to explore many new activities such as yoga, rock climbing, general fitness and so forth. I have taught fitness for a year and a half at a school for middle schoolers. I also worked at a climbing gym for a few months where I was a climbing instructor and led the warm up fitness sessions. Fitness is something I love doing as a daily activity and I love teaching it to kids in a way that they enjoy it and I encourage them to think about their lifestyle too since fitness is not just about doing daily exercises but also about maintaining a healthy lifestyle with a healthy mind and body.
