Hindi being a National Language Of India. Most of the parents in the USA are willing to make their children Hindi literate along with communication. I take the privilege to help them to reach their goal. As Hindi is a foreign language, it will certainly help high schoolers to raise their credits.

About Patricia

As a person who has always been fascinated by the weird world of astrology (Scorpio sun, Gemini moon hey!), horror films, and all things occult, I naturally became an obsessive tarot reader, and I hope you all love it as much as I do! I always enjoyed teaching tarot to those who ask, so while t

"Erin is a very gentle, warm, easy-going instructor which is a welcome change for me as someone who is used to harsher, more pushy teachers (they have their benefits too). Though she is gentle, she remains focused on the task at hand with me during lessons. She also communicates with me throughout the week in email if I have questions. She is willing to work at my pace and teach me patterns for items I'm interested in. I wish her camera had slightly better quality with focus do I could see her fingers and the individual.yarns she's touching with greater clarity. I really like working with Erin (I think we have had around 5 lessons so far) and intend to continue for a while. She's giving me a great support system and basis for crochet ability. I basically knew nothing about crochet before starting with her."
