Overview

I have a wide range of training experience - right from doing Technical Training for Multinational companies to teaching young children.
My expertise include English (Spoken, Business, for children) and Communication skills.
I bring with me not only teaching experience but also very vast industry/ corporate experience. My teaching style is not merely transferring the knowledge but also sharing experiences and learning together. This has proven very effective especially when students are looking to hone their skills in English and communication. The classes are highly interactive and fun (for young and old alike.

Vigneshwara.S attended Spoken English

"I had my English knowledge but I didn't know to express with others. She helped me a lot to speak in English. Now I am able to communicate fluently with my friends and relatives. It is important to tell about her classes. She has her own teaching style. At first I thought that this class would be bore but when I started attending her classes it became joyful. She didn't show any partiality as teacher and student. She determines the ability of students and teaches according to their level and making them wise. In my thought this was the best class I had ever attended. I want to learn still many things from her. Very thanks ma'am for making me to speak in English and writing like this. Because of you only all this possible ma'am. "

Manpreet attended IELTS Coaching

"For all those who are looking for one to one IELTS coaching, this is the place you need to be. It was good experience and she helped me a lot for all sections of IELTS, regular feedback, stretching class hours, adjusting as per my availability etc are just some of the reasons to mention here. Not to mention her strong command of English language, overall highly recommend to ppl who are afraid to go to regular coaching classes. "

Janani Suri attended IELTS Coaching

"Akila Ma'am is one of the most brilliant teachers I have had the pleasure of studying under. Not only did she explain concepts to me slowly, and give me plenty of practice, she is compassionate, good-humored and patient, willing to explain everything over and over again if you need it. In her, not only did I find a teacher under whose tutelage I scored 8.5 in my IELTS exam, I found a teacher so genuinely proud of me that she insisted on us having a treat, and a friend that I was so comfortable with that I used to chat with her all the time. I would recommend her to absolutely everyone because she is incredible and just one of the people I am so glad that I met. She can make anyone feel comfortable and teach them brilliantly to boot. "

It takes a lot of initiative and dedication from you. It just like how a baby learns .. surround yourself with the language... speak in English, read English text, think in English and finally write something in English everyday.

Depending on your English proficiency, the coaching time frame will vary. If it's just a matter of brushing up and understanding the structure of the paper a 40 hour course is enough. But , if you additionally need to brush up or improve your English skills, a longer time period may be required.

Yes, it varies from person to person. From my experience, I have noticed that writing doesn't come too easily too. But with adequate practice and the right guidance, all the modules become easy.

Teaching Experience in detail in Class I-V Tuition

I am a highly experienced English teacher and have been involved in teaching Communicative English for a long time. But due to prior background with teaching English to kids, i have recently started Communicative English for kids at my institute. I believe, that the textbooks only scratch the surface. The real learning happens only when we apply and use the language. This unfortunately is missing in the school environment. This class will focus on the application of the English language through creative writing exercises , role play, theater with a special emphasis on reading.
