I've had only one lesson, yet I am inspired. This is a real teacher of the Russian language. This is more than a person who just speaks the language. Already her technique as a trained teacher can be felt.

This teacher is for you as long as you want to learn very serious ASL. Not just signing English words in the English order. ASL is beautiful and this teacher does a wonderful job of teaching it. I am paying for her lessons and its worth it.

About Gurdeep
Namaste,
I am a Beginner Level 1 Hindi Teacher. I have been teaching Hindi to young kids since about 8 years. My class provides a strong foundation for further studies in Hindi language for your child. I teach Hindi in a fun oriented way using creative methods and techniques. Students are taught basic reading/writing skills in Hindi for alphabet letters, numerals, colors, shapes, fruits, vegetables, body parts, weather/seasons, and many other topics as part of the introductory curriculum. I also employ teacher led discussion sessions, story-times, craft activities, rhymes and song/action routines. In the process, the children also become proficient in various social skills such as self-introduction and group conversations. I provide few homework sheets to complete under guidance of parents. I look forward to spending a wonderful time tea
ching your child! Please feel free to contact anytime for your comments, suggestions or questions. References can be provided upon request.
