I have a degree in Education with Psychology and have vast experience of teaching from toddlers to teens and adults too. I have coached adults in India to master the English Language.

In US, I have been teaching Hindi to teens and adults and to American born Indians and Americans, also, who want to learn Hindi. I specialize in teaching reading, writing and speaking Hindi at a level to earn Foreign language high school credit for Fairfax County Public Schools.

Adult American have taken lessons not only to learn the language, but to understand and learn diverse Indian culture and food.

I am experienced in teaching grammar of both English and Hindi to be able to express correctly. Although I have a science degree I have equal experience in teaching Math, Science and languages.

I am looking forward to having some new challenges...

Hindi

I am Padmini, a teacher at heart, have been teaching since my teens. I love teaching and working with all age groups from toddlers to teens and their parents. I am based in Northern Virginia and working with Fairfax County Public Schools as a FLEX-teacher for Hindi. Although Hindi is not my mother tongue, I grew up with the language and it's my love and passion. Hindi has evolved from Sanskrit and has lots of verbal variations, but the its script is just one called Devnagari (from the place of Gods) just like Sanskrit and is used in a very different way than English. The beauty of this language is the way you write, so you speak the way it is written, as it is spoken. Unlike English, there is almost no variation in its pronunciation, if Devnagari Script is used. I am Visharad in Hindi from Prayag University form India and have taught the language to ICSE and CBSE students and taught literature and poetry at college level. In US I have worked with diplomats and college level students for many years. Presently I am involved with preparing students to take foreign language credit exam with FCPS.

Excellent, skilled tutor

Padmini is not only skilled in her subject but also she is capable of teaching a language to a non-native speaker in a way that is encouraging and inspirational.

Knowledgeable teacher with lots of experience

Padmini-ji was a great Hindi tutor for my daughter. She has a lot of experience with kids looking to take Hindi exams. She assessed my daughter's level and was able to take her to where she needed to be in order to be confident and ready for her exam. She was very prompt in her response and schedules sessions promptly. If you are looking for a Hindi test-prep tutor, Padmini is a very good choice.

Patient, Warm and Experienced Hindi Teacher

Oh how my husband and I are glad to have found Padmini. My husband had tried multiple ways of learning Hindi prior to meeting Padmini including Rosetta Stone and a group class. 3 years in and he was extremely disheartened about his lack of progress with any of these methods. Boom! A quick search for a tutor had us find Padmini and we are extremely happy with her teaching approach. She is extremely patient, is quick to adjust her pace according to the student and creates an environment that is welcoming and open. I would recommend her to others who would like to learn at their own pace from a patient and knowledgeable teacher.
