We are happy to feature Dhanya R., an experienced and professional tutor from Chennai. She's backed by 15 years of core experience in teaching Spoken English and academic subjects for Class IX-XII students across different boards including CBSE, ICSE, IGCSE, IB & NIOS. Dhanya has a deep passion and interest in teaching. She likes to share her experience and knowledge with young minds for the betterment of society. She also believes that proven results can be seen only with a human touch through practical examples.

According to Dhanya, it is important to help students get rid of the fear of learning the English language. For that, she befriends her students and builds a strong and personal relationship with them. This practice often makes the students feel connected with her and open up about their learning difficulties. It also helps Dhanya to personalize the teachings according to their interest and understanding capability.

According to one of her students - "I love the teaching style of Dhanya mam. She explains practically and makes the students understand in a simple way."

Our heartiest congratulations to Dhanya R.!

Here is her experience & teaching journey in her own words:

1. When and why did you choose to become a Spoken English tutor?

Ans: I have 15 years of teaching experience. I think language is fascinating and I love helping people understand what this language means and how it works.

2. What skills are required to become a Spoken English tutor?

Ans: Teaching the English language entails a comprehensive job that covers a wide ambit. English language trainers generally handle individuals' abilities to frame grammatically correct sentences or his/her lack of vocabulary, fear of speaking to groups of people, and ineffective presentation skills.

3. How did you come across

Ans: I came across through an Internet search. I have been using UrbanPro platform for the past one year. Now I am an Assured tutor of UrbanPro.

4. What distinguishes you from other Spoken English tutors?

Ans: I follow a unique methodology, I believe practicing language is more important than learning grammar step by step. I provide training through videos, conversations, etc. Training the students through regular conversation practice will help them gain confidence.

5. What percentage of your students do you typically get from UrbanPro?

Ans: I receive approximately 55% of students from UrbanPro.

6. What are your top recommendations to tutors who want to get more students?

Ans: Successful tutors build strong, personal relationships with their students.

Tutors fill a different role than teachers and parents, and that puts them in a unique position to support students. Personal relationships are foundational to student success -- the more connected a student feels to his or her tutor, the more the tutor creates trust and respect, essential ingredients for students to learn well. When a tutor listens and spends time building a relationship with his or her student, that tutor can:

  • Truly personalize the learning
  • Incorporate connections to the student's interests
  • Teach to the student's strengths
  • Minimize the student's weaknesses

Dhanya R. has been conducting tuitions for Spoken English and academic subjects for Class IX-XII students for the past 15 years.
