About Sunita

Language is a powerful tool that helps us succeed in life. Like Harry S. Truman said, "Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers."

To help students develop a love for words, both spoken and written is what I am passionate about. I have helped students in the US and abroad acquire English reading and writing skills. As a student of English Literature in college, I worked as a tutor on campus and helped other students refine and upgrade their written assignments. These assignments ranged from simple essays to in-depth research papers. I have also worked with younger students in an after-school program where I helped them with reading as well as writing. I have been associated with teaching reading to students of ethnically diverse backgrounds. Children from exclusively non-English speaking cultures have been under my guidance for the past two years and I am proud to say that they have become very enthusiastic about learning English. I have conducted and led the first ever Reading Program in an emerging school in India. I helped set up the school central library as well as the class libraries.

My teaching methodology is simple: I work with each student by assessing their individual learning needs and academic requirements and accordingly customizing lessons. I work on the overall development of the language of the child - speaking, reading and writing - with time-tested methods. I have completed several Graduate level courses in Education and have over ten years of teaching experience in varied settings. My expectations of my students are high and I strive to help students produce error-free work. I believe that each child is capable of learning through practice and enjoying the beauty of words; all that is needed is the right guidance and timely intervention.

I encourage active student participation and value their feedback.

Thanks Anju! I must say the sessions so far with your son have been very rewarding for me as well since teaching is a learning experience too. I really appreciate your cooperation in the endeavor.

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.

Hindi

Hindi is my native language and I have had schooling with Hindi as a mandatory subject all the way from elementary school up to college. I have been awarded a merit certificate for excellence in Hindi from the Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi, India.
I hold double Bachelor's degrees, one from India, which included Hindi as a compulsory subject and the other from Baruch College, New York, with an English Major. So I feel absolutely comfortable in both languages, English as well as Hindi.
Needless to say, I can read, write and speak Hindi with the same comfort as English.

Study Skills

After having spent years in the academic environs, as a student and then as a teacher, I feel confident that I can easily help students focus on the important stuff in any given curriculum. I believe it is just as important to study well than just study more. Time management, focus on the right areas, speed and accuracy are some of the areas that I would work on as a study skills instructor. Having appeared in countless exams and worked under pressure of balancing work with academics has given me an edge on how to study well in a limited amount of time.

Writing

I have been a student of English Literature at the Undergraduate level and have years of experience with writing assignments of all kinds; essays, reports, research papers, formal as well as informal writing, and of course, creative writing.

Very Helpful — We had 3 lessons with Sunita so far and I found her a very capable and understanding tutor.  She is very flexible and really explains the concepts with patience.

She leaves homework for him to complete until the next session. I'm looking forwa ...
