Namaste! Thank you for your interest in my profile : )
I am from India and a native Hindi speaker. I have 12 years of teaching experience. I am a language tutor for Hindi for the past 6 years in an IB school. I am an Electronics Engineer by qualification. I have also done MA in Education, CIDTL and various other courses to enhance student performance in the classroom.
I am comfortable working with students of varied needs. I can help children as well as adults who have some particular learning goals. I can teach you Hindi script as well as spoken Hindi. Learners at intermediate level can practice advance grammatical concepts with me .
Me as a Teacher
I am a very passionate teacher. I use multiple strategies to help my learners in my classroom. I keep experimenting the ways to enhance performance of my students. In order to help them learn proper pronunciations, Hindi alphabets sounds, matras, reading practice and listening skills, I have created a YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/c/HindiwithVanD) .
I give homework assignments to the learners who are open to it. It helps them to be ready for the upcoming classes. But I understand that most working professionals are not able to afford that kind of time. I am flexible and will customize lessons to suit your needs.
My lessons & teaching style
My lessons are personalized according to the needs of my learners. I encourage active participation from the learners for setting learning goals and learning engagements. I aim at equipping my students for lifelong learning through various resources and the ways to use them .
I am known to instill love for Hindi language among my students in a cosmopolitan population of Bangalore, India. I am sure you will find a friendly and knowledgeable tutor in me :)
Look forward to seeing you!
Just finished my 2nd lesson with Vandana ji. I came to her with some Hindi self-learning background and knowledge of Devanagari. After the two lessons with her, I am enjoying learning a lot because the lessons are organized (not chaotic or out of air) and tailored to my current level. I hope to become fluent in speaking, writing, reading, listening as much as possible and confident that Vandana can get me there.

Really good lesson. We went over a couple of grammatical concepts and she was very knowledgeable and explained everything to me clearly. It also was interactive, so I had to read and write example sentences and construct new examples on my own. This really forces me to solidify my understanding of the concept, and in addition works on my speaking and writing skills. She also provided handouts for me to study at home as well as homework.

Vandana is extremely patient with me. Today we continued our study of the matras, and reading Hindi words is becoming much easier. Can't wait for our next lesson!

Wonderful lesson as always. Today we continued our work with matras through reading stories, learning new vocab, and answering questions. Vandana also suggested some movies in Hindi for me to watch.
