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

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

Ans: Although I started my career as a computer instructor in 1993 I got involved later in the garment export industry. In 2015 I was working with a politician in Chennai as a Marathi Translator. He had an extra room, so I requested him if I could take up tutoring activities in that place. After advertising on different websites, I started getting students who wanted to be trained in various languages and hence I began tutoring for Spoken English. I enrolled myself in UrbanPro as a tutor and started getting students from nearby areas who came to my home to study. Currently, I am taking online classes and I am happy to say that I am enjoying it.

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

Ans: Apart from good vocabulary and grammatical skills, the ability to engage the student for 1 hour is a required skill.

3. How did you come across

Ans: I was referred to UrbanPro by a student.

4. What distinguishes you from other Spoken English tutors?

Ans: I am not aware of other tutors' methods, but as for me I have excellent course material in the form of books, links of sites and pdf books, which I share with my students via online. This is not only for Spoken English but also for other categories I teach on UrbanPro.

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

Ans: I get 90% of students now from UrbanPro.

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

Ans: Please invest not just in buying UrbanPro Coins but also in conducting impressive demos, understanding the students' needs, and tutoring them in basic, intermediate or expert level, considering their current requirement.
