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.

I did my IELTS training under Shama Ma'am for a month. Prior to this, I had no idea on how to structure my paragraphs in Writing sections or how to speak correctly according to IELTS standards. Shama Ma'am's guidance helped me figure out how to write essays which would score a good band, how to split up my time efficiently, how to give concise answers during speaking while helping me keep a cool head through it all. She has really dialled in the IELTS scoring pattern so the bands she gives on practise tests are accurate and her corrections go a long way in helping us score better.
Shama is one of the best teachers. I enrolled in her class for improving my English fluency and writing skills. I am literally able to see good progress. I would certainly recommend Shama for your training.
Shama mam is a great teacher. As a student, she knows how to make people understand in most easy language. I strongly recommend her if you want to learn English.
She will teaches students based on her understand ing about their skils by observing deeply. Very nice and patience
Shama is a native speaker. She gives customized lessons suitable for the learner. Punctual and dedicated. My sister improved her English listening and speaking skills. We appreciate all the efforts given by Shama. I highly recommend Shama for beginner to professional level. If you want to improve your advanced professional level English or you are just a beginner she knows what to do. Highly skilled friendly teacher.
She's probably one of the best tutors I've ever met. She clearly analyse the area of weakness and focus tremendously on how to rectify it. Besides subject, she gave a lot of input on general knowledge. The sessions were very interactive and informative.
I strongly recommend Shama to all the students who is struggling with IELTS preparation. She is an excellent teacher. Her manner of teaching is so good.
Very knowledgeable and highly recommended for IELTS and english fluency. She keeps motivating by easily identifying strengths and weakness.
Her passion towards teaching english skills is seen in all classes and her methods are easier to follow.
Experienced, polite and skilled teacher and one would definitely love her classes
She is the best English teacher for any learner. I've been learning with her for a few years now and it has been a great experience. I am in the steps to mastering the English language. She is the perfect teacher made for teaching English.
She has been the key resource at our institute, you may find more about her in our website solomonlanguages.com. She designs and tailor makes classes to suit students and is a very conscientious individual. ---Director Solomon Languages...
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.
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.
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.
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.

Tell us more about your subject. How did you develop an interest in this field?
I teach all the four skills of English learning to candidates who would like to study or work abroad thereby enabling them to clear the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). I work with small groups of students (not more than 4/5) from all across the globe and I have taught for over 20 years . I also take individual classes, if there is a need. I have taught technical subjects, Management Subjects, Business Communication and English as well as Education and Training to teachers as well. I simply enjoy teaching and making a difference.
What or who is the motivation behind you choosing to teach & why?
I decided to pursue my love for English reading and writing and completed my Master trainer course for IELTS in British Council. This helps me to cater to students from vernacular medium with aspirations and goals to work/study abroad, aiding them to achieve their goals as the classes are tailor-made to suit every individuals needs.
How does your work help society?
I give my all, to the work I do. I know I make a difference in the lives of my students helping them capture and realize their dreams. I also teach some young graduates communication and interview skills to help them do interviews well, so that they may land good jobs. My students come to me for advice and direction even after their course of study.
If you had to think of a role model for your work, who do you think of & why?
My mother. She was a selfless teacher herself and I do come from a family of teachers. My grandparents were teachers who were recipients of National awards, my sisters are also teachers, and even though I have done various things in my lifetime, I basically am a teacher. I remember my mom catering to all types of students from both intellectually and economically varied strata... She made a difference in the lives of many, and I know this noble profession gives a satisfaction that is unparalleled.
Tell us about your hobbies outside teaching.
Well, I am basically adventurous and am a true sports enthusiast. I have done many things in my life, climbed mountains, participated in National level sports meets, trekked, hiked, cycled, swum, lead teams, parades, managed prestigious projects, worked in MNCs, served the nation, lead an NGO and completely managed the building of two houses. So, I like taking on challenging roles and bringing in success.
Do you have an anecdote to tell us about your student or professional life?
I took on a spoken English student who was intelligent but hailed from a family which did not speak English. He wanted to improve his Spoken English skills to aid him to do well in his job as a Medical Representative. He had studied in one of the smaller towns in the local language and even though he knew English, made a lot of mistakes. He joined in a small group, but as time progressed the interest that this student showed, made me take separate classes for him. He learnt, applied it and very soon, was giving speeches in his company meetings. The jewel in the crown was the fact that soon after completing his course with me, he got a much better job in an MNC with a 30% hike to his salary. Knowing that he comes from a small village, where his father is a vessel polisher and having in a small way aided this student to be the first in his family to work for an MNC is truly satisfying. I am sure, he will lead the way for many others in his family and village to move ahead in life... Yes, teachers create ripples that multiply and spread...
