I received a TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) in 1986 through UC Berkeley Extension and taught at Galileo High School in San Francisco. I also tutored intermediate students from 1986-1988 and taught in Mexico for several months in 2005. In 2011, I came to the International Refugee Committee and for 3 years taught ESL to level 1 students, many from African, Middle Eastern, and other countries who spoke no English at all when they enrolled. I teach students of any age.

About Judy

Judy had my son up and playing in no time. She was great about setting a pace that will keep him challenged and confident simultaneously. He loves his lessons and looks forward to learning more. My youngest, after observing a class, has decided he would like to play too!

Students can take lessons to learn just conversational hindi. They will be able to speak basic sentences from first lesson and in 15-20 lessons, should be able to have a good conversation. They can learn to read and write, the way I teach students can start reading words from the very first lesson. They should be fluent reader in 15 lessons.

My first lesson was great. Tarun ji immediately started our lesson in Hindi and I learned so many new words in just an hour lesson. Looking forward to more lessons to come and very inspired to learn with my great teacher!

Very good Hindi Instructor! Very patient with her students!
Yuj & Veer K.
Taruna seems very good at getting kids interested in learning. My kids had their first session yesterday and she kept the conversations a mix of Hindi and English - that probably was a big reason my kids felt comfortable and ready to continue learning with her. Also, she is pleasant and welcoming.

wanting to learn ESL can be daunting. However, my classes are very interactive and open. I use objects to help my students understand the language from a visual perspective. Every country has the same objects but different words to describe that thing.
Each students learning style is different and I will work with you, to create a program that is specific to you and help you reach your goal in learning english as a second language.
