I am a Hindi teacher, education consultant, author and trainer with over 3 decades of teaching experience. As a teacher, I have a history of achieving transformational results with students from different parts of the world. My legacy of effective teaching practices has been evident in very high ratings and excellent feedback, which I get from my students. I teach basic to advanced learners. I am fluent in English. I can also speak French & German. I am the creator of an immensely popular podcast, which has had about 400,000 listens and 6,000 subscribers across the globe.
The innovative method of teaching
I teach from the textbook that I have written himself, I have constructed unique grammar lessons to deal with the lack of advanced grammar material in Hindi language books today. Most Hindi books never go beyond lower intermediate and many of the advanced grammar lessons are poorly explained in these books, but my lessons are clear and concise. My lessons are a combination of dialogue, grammar, and conversation. I can proudly say my courses are among the world’s best contemporary courses, which could lead you from zero levels to the highest level in the shortest possible time. No one except my wife is allowed to use these courses. If you see any material anywhere similar to my material, that surely be inspired by my lessons.
I help my students improving in Hindi dramatically on all fronts, reading, writing, speaking, and understanding. My conversational and personalized approach allows my students to make quick improvements and gain confidence while discussing a number of contemporary issues and subjects crucial for anyone hoping to engage with Indian life. My students become comfortable to converse about pretty much anything in Hindi, watch local news, read newspapers and write well in the Devnagri script. I have lots of support materials including videos. I can design/mold my courses according to your language aim.
I add something to my courses almost every day by writing a new article/ grammar lesson.
On the first day, I carry out students' skilled assessments & find out their objectives. This helps me to determine the suitable course/method to teach them.
My lessons are a combination of dialogue, grammar, and conversation, which take learners from basic to advanced levels in the shortest possible time. I give my students a lot of conversational practice.
I encourage my students to express their views in Hindi on a number of issues, ask them to tell a story or to narrate incidents of their lives. Initially, the topics are easy, but gradually they become more difficult.
I talk to my Advanced Course students on a variety of topics eg. social, political, cultural ones, etc.
I use video & audio clips
my teaching philosophy -
I believe ‘students are my teachers’ –when I fail or I am partially successful in explaining a student a grammar rule / a sentence construction – I am forced to think of a new method to make him/her fully understand that particular grammar rule/sentence construction. And by doing this I add something new to my course & improve it.
I also believe that ‘a good teacher is always a student’, as he/she has to constantly keep on learning new ways to improve his/her instruction.

Overcoming Your Language Learning Plateau:
Most of the teachers help you to hit pass the beginner stage and lead you up to the intermediate stage, so you start to be able to do most of the things you need to do (speak, understand, read, write) in Hindi & can hold a basic conversation. But then suddenly you notice find that your language learning halts or slows down drastically & you make no further significant progress. You have hit the language learning plateau. I can help you to move past it and help you with the transition from intermediate to advanced level.
