Personal Statement

I am born, brought up, educated, and taught in India. I have been coaching students since my high school days until today.

I have a degree in Education with Psychology and have vast experience of teaching from toddlers to teens and adults too. I have coached adults in India to master the English Language.

In US, I have been teaching Hindi to teens and adults and to American born Indians and Americans, also, who want to learn Hindi. I specialize in teaching reading, writing and speaking Hind...


I can?t believe how fast I?m learning! And, I?m able to retain and recall the information I?ve learned. In 6 lessons I?ve learned all the letters, vowels, and accent marks. In two more sessions I?ll be able to read sentences. Eventually, with a little practice, I should be able to write! I have the best guru ever!

Padmini is very skilled in encouraging and promoting learning in a non-native speaker of Hindi. From our first lesson she made it seem as though mastering Hindi will not be an unattainable goal. With Padmini's guidance I have in a short amount of time mastered conversational phrases, learned the alphabet and am able to read basic words. Padmini is always prepared with flashcards/books/worksheets tailored to my specific needs. Padmini is kind, patient and a delight to learn from - I would highly recommend her tutoring services.

Following just one session with Padmini, I already feel that my Hindi learning is endowed with a new sense of direction and motivation. Padmini's teaching methods reveal a masterful knowledge not just of Hindi but the language learning process as well. Furthermore, she is very kind, patient, and a delight to talk to.

Had our first lesson. Padmini took all my requests into consideration and answered every weird question I had! Very good lesson. Looking forward to the next one.

Padmini is not only skilled in her subject but also she is capable of teaching a language to a non-native speaker in a way that is encouraging and inspirational.

Padmini-ji was a great Hindi tutor for my daughter. She has a lot of experience with kids looking to take Hindi exams. She assessed my daughter's level and was able to take her to where she needed to be in order to be confident and ready for her exam. She was very prompt in her response and schedules sessions promptly. If you are looking for a Hindi test-prep tutor, Padmini is a very good choice.

Oh how my husband and I are glad to have found Padmini. My husband had tried multiple ways of learning Hindi prior to meeting Padmini including Rosetta Stone and a group class. 3 years in and he was extremely disheartened about his lack of progress with any of these methods. Boom! A quick search for a tutor had us find Padmini and we are extremely happy with her teaching approach. She is extremely patient, is quick to adjust her pace according to the student and creates an environment that is welcoming and open. I would recommend her to others who would like to learn at their own pace from a patient and knowledgeable teacher.
