I'm attempting the impossible - learning a new language! Annika makes the impossible feel possible. She is a really great teacher, has excellent suggestions for how to move forward. I like the text we work from, too. I highly recommend learning a new language from Annika!

Math is very easy subject but what matters is the way it is taught .
I love to teach Math Problems to the children.
Teaching is my passion ...

I am from Bengaluru, Kannada is my favorite language. I feel proud to teach Kannada ( literature and communication) for all those who are aspiring to learn Kannada

I enchant SHLOKAS daily and wish to teach for those who are willing to learn.

About Ashwini

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.

Ashwini assumed that I was married upon meeting her, and asked me when I was getting married as soon as she learned I wasn't married. She also asked where I was getting married, even though at the time I wasn't engaged. Even when I made it apparent I wasn't engaged, she continued to refer to my boyfriend as my fiance.

She would send me political things going on in India, even though I have no interest, and it has nothing to do with the lessons I was taking from her. She asked me if my boyfriend was voting, and many personal things that shouldn't be asked of a student learning Hindi.

She often moved my scheduled time around without asking, which meant that I needed to move my schedule around in order to attend her sessions.

As a teacher she was pretty good, but some things disappointed me there too. For instance, I made a sentence in which a jeweler was a woman, and she stated that can't be correct, because there are no woman jewelers. I'm a woman engineer, and it's really sad to see such a sexist thing. Even when I attempted to ask about how you would say something about a woman jeweler, she said it was impossible. Later she said nurses could only be woman.

"I asked Rod to work with my daughter on geometry to help her get ready for 9th grade. Rod explains each concept and its application very well. His lessons are appropriate for grade level but also challenging. I am particularly happy that my daughter is learning a broader approach to problem solving and critical thinking. As a scientist (PhD in chemistry) and a mother of a teenager, I appreciate Rod’s approach as it will provide a solid foundation for my daughter’s learning for many years to come. And he is always on time and gives me an overview of what was covered and what will be covered after each lesson. I highly recommend him."

"Many tutors are competent and knowledgeable in their subjects, some are also very good teachers as well. However, very few tutors are innovative in their teaching approach. Maurice is just that. He talked to my son and figured out not only what my son does not know, but even more importantly, what his learning style is and the best customized way to deliver missing knowledge to him. Maurice went outside the subject matter and used learning games and tricks to efficiently deliver the info to make sure my son also retained that knowledge. No one has unlimited time and resources; it is very important to me that they are used wisely and efficiently. Thank you, Maurice, for helping us."

"I'm in a fast paced trig course at my uni, and we've covered things I never did in high school. I did 5 lessons over skype with Julia, and know I've found a keeper. She sends stuff to practice on in advance and has me work with her like I would with my professor. She comes up with practice based on my weakest areas and never shortens time. I don't even have to ask for review material because she assigns hw to work on, and basically, I'm a master at graphing now."

"Professor Alex is plainly the best instructor I have ever encountered. Alex does not read the textbook aloud to students in a monotone and boring way. He plucks out the most important material and starts an engaging discussion/debate regardless of the topic. He can make anything seem interesting and easy to understand. What makes Alex different than most teachers is his commitment to his students. If you want to learn, he will go out of his way to teach you. If you don't understand something, he will slow it down for you and spend the necessary effort in order for you to understand. You can actually tell that he cares about what you think as well as your success in life. No other teacher has remotely been as helpful as he has."
