Perfect! She is a native speaker, customized lessons and having great learning experience!!!

Shama's response

An interested student, willing to learn.

Perfect! I am 63 years old and wanted to improve my basic knowledge of English. I wanted to communicate well in English for my future travels. The focus of success I think, lies in Conversation with a minimum of Grammar. With Shama I found an English teacher who will help me in a natural way and with a lot of joy to reach this goal. Shama lets me talk freely about various topics but always brings me back to the starting point. We also form sentences and discuss the necessary grammar. It is always fun to learn together with Shama. I would recommend Shama to anyone interested in learning English.

Shama's response

Mr Fuhrer is a very considerate person and a keen student. He is very meticulous, keeps notes and comes fully prepared for every class. He is on time and is a joy to work with. I enjoy taking classes for him.

All well. She is a dedicated teacher. She will take care of each student to improve them further. She is always there to help at anytime. I strongly recommend this teacher.

Monisha

I’m going spoken English class to Mrs. Shama, her teaching was fabulous. Once, she find a errors on your (e.g pronunciation, sentences forming, or spells error) English Language. She gives a practice on that error till you get perfect. Based on such practices, I changed a lot of things in English language. She is very good trainer in English Language.

R
Ravichandran

She takes her job seriously, she enjoys teaching and gives her best in everything that she does. She is tech savvy, and uses all available tech tools to offer an excellent learning experience.

B
Balakrishnan

I have known her for the last 24 years and can vouch for her credentials in the academic field. She has contributed immensely in the Education branch of the Indian Navy and carried forward her enthusiasm, post her retirement. Command over both the spoken & written language, attention for details and sensitivity to individual needs, are the hallmarks of an ideal teacher and Shama is perfectly suited for this role. Her stint with many academic institutions in designing their teaching methodology and evolving a suitable curriculum would help her in this venture. I have no doubt her students will not only enjoy her language classes, but also benefit in their careers. I strongly recommend her to those who need specialised classes in spoken and written English, especially those who have studied in the vernacular medium. I wish her the best in this noble venture.
