An English Honors from JMC followed by an MBA who has been writing all her life with reputed organisations. Have studied Creative Writing from SACAC. Let me impart some hacks and nuggets to you to up your game in writing and expression so that you end up creating the right impression.
Perfect! What I did yearn for, is to be able to write impromptu on any arbitrary topic presented to me. I wanted to be able to write 500- 800 words that would stand out and stick in the reader's mind. I wanted to expand my vocabulary base. I wanted my writing process to spark joy in me. I wanted my writing to craft vivid images in the reader’s mind. Shiitaal is just what the doctor ordered. I thoroughly enjoyed my sessions with her – my dormant imagination has surfaced. I am now "showing not telling" - yes the shift has happened. I now write engaging paragraphs (at least I think that they are interesting and so do the people around me). Most importantly, I do not view writing as a chore any more.
Perfect! Wow! Wonderful classes especially the way she explains ‘show not tell’. My writing is so much more sensory and I’m not being too structured and rigid about the rules of writing. I’m allowing it to flow; I’m writing from the heart. With Shiitaal’s gentle nudges and insights, I am developing a voice. I am able to understand the subtle nuances of good writing. She makes the classes a whole lot of fun; the learning just happens in an organic way. She’s kind and humble and takes a personal interest in my likes and dislikes, passions and hobbies; so as to choose topics for writing that'll inspire me.
Thanks for the lovely feedback Komal. Trust me it is I who has all the fun teaching. I'm glad to know that you do as well.
Perfect! Absolutely loving the time I spend learning with Shiitaal. She is very thoughtful, expressive and explores different perspectives and possibilities while explaining different concepts. Studying creative writing is something Ive always wanted to do. Learning the craft from Shiitaal has given me so many 'aha' moments and one hour passes by just too quickly.
Thanks for the great feedback. I get so many 'aha' moments as a teacher when I coach bright minds like you!
Perfect! Shiitaal is the best creative writing coach I’ve encountered till date. Her teaching style is fabulous. Her classes delve deep into the different ways in which one can explore one’s imagination and creativity – she egged me on with ideas and tools that opened up new windows in my mind. I’ve begun the journey with her – it has just been around 7 odd classes and I’m absolutely loving it so far. Each lesson exposes some new aspect of writing that she discusses flawlessly.
Thanks for the positive feedback Mohan. You are exceptionally talented and motivated. You will go a long way.
Perfect! Absolutely amaaazing creative writing coach! I have discovered joy in my writing ever since I started coaching with Shiitaal. The way she teaches is so inspiring. She is very creative and gives exercises, prompts and tools that trigger one’s imagination. She has fine-tuned the lessons as per my skill set. The classes are mentally stimulating. She is intelligent and very patient. Can’t recommend her enough!
Thanks Amit for the kind words. You are a very talented student and I love how you come up with such interesting ideas in class.
Perfect! Shiitaal maam has spruced up my writing abilities in a handful of classes and I work my writing muscles a little more with each class. I had no clue that learning could be so much fun but that's exactly how the lessons are turning out to be. She's broken the stereotypical way of teaching and her approach is one of a kind. Also, I love the enthusiasm she brings to class each time.
Akash you are creatively inclined and should tap into your creativity. You are a pleasure to coach.
Fantastic coach for creative writing. My son loves his lessons with Shiitaal. He was articulate but not so good at writing prior to taking lessons with Shiitaal. But all that has changed now. He loves to write and he can do it well, thanks to her.
My daughter is in class XI and is preparing to go abroad for further studies. She is bright and very articulate. However, if the teacher would ask her to write 500 words on any arbit topic, her mind would draw a blank. I was looking for a creative writing coach and around that time, through some common references, I learnt about Shiitaal. I enrolled my daughter with Shiitaal and it is by far the best decision I have made in my life. It has been just a few months since my daughter has been taking lessons with Shiitaal and trust me, she is already transformed. Shiitaal's approach and methodology is unconventional. It is also her inherent ability to identify the child's strengths and weaknesses; thereby customising the sessions, that makes a huge difference to the child. Her unique teaching style makes a deep impact on the child's thinking and writing prowess. My daughter learns a million new things under Shiitaal's mentoring every week. Now my daughter is brimming with ideas when I ask her to write on any topic under the sun. I am confident that my daughter will go a long way under Shiitaal's coaching and mentoring.
My younger brother Aryan had so many cool ideas in his head but didn't know how to express them in a way that would catch the reader's attention. A common friend told me about Shiitaal maam and I got in touch with her. From the word go, Aryan's world opened up and he learnt many new ways in which to express what he wanted to in an unconventional way. In fact, Shiitaal maam took Aryan way beyond being able to express himself. His vocabulary has expanded by leaps and bounds and he now writes paragraphs that his class teacher acknowledges as being the best amidst a class of 47 odd students. Shiitaal is a fabulous creative writing coach and with every lesson, I see a difference in the way Aryan is expressing himself on paper as well as verbally. She has made a whole lot of difference to Aryan's world and hence ours.
We are so glad that we found Shiitaal, since my niece was in search of a good creative writing coach. Right from being able to tell a story from her own bank of experiences to presenting her thoughts and ideas in an engaging manner, my niece has come a long way- all thanks to Shiitaal. My 14 year old niece is no longer the shy mouse who was hesitant to talk about her ideas, but more an articulate speaker and thinker now. Indeed, Shiitaal has taught her not just to write but also to think out of the box. My niece is always looking forward to the next lesson with Shiitaal. She's an awesome coach and teacher.
I got to know about Shiitaal through a reference and immediately enrolled my 10 year old son in Creative Writing classes with her. She has been just the inspiration my kid needed to start his writing journey. She stimulates the thinking and imagination of the child with prompts, exercises and really offbeat ideas. Her methodology is unique and very effective. My son has developed a love for writing under her mentoring and looks forward to lessons with her. His vocabulary base has expanded 10 fold and he can now think spontaneously and write engaging paragraphs on different topics. As a teacher, she is always willing to clear his doubts. If you are considering her to coach your child, look no further!
- A happy parent.
