I am very excited at the prospect of having a long-lasting impact on the lives of those that I teach. My love for teaching can be seen in my experience to date. I possess a genuine passion in the development and education of children and will do everything possible to ignite a desire to learn and to keep learning in their minds. I am someone who has the ability to hold engaging classes that capture the attention of the whole classroom, and at the same time, I have the ability to tailor my teaching to each individual student – be it so online.
I have volunteered and taught in a multitude of different settings and areas such as: schools, orphanages, and even prisons. Therefore, I have great experience in teaching an array of students from all sorts of backgrounds and cultures.
On a personal level I am self-reflective, committed, imaginative, organised, and am always looking at ways in which I can improve myself. I have high expectations of myself and take my responsibility as an educator very seriously. I have taught an array of subjects before, ranging from Sciences to Languages and have an attractive style of teaching, infectious energy levels and a unique ability to connect with my students!
As an undergraduate accumulating over five years worth of teaching experience and studying a subject as pertinent and holistic as English and Drama, I have an extensive set of skills related to teaching and communication that I have gained from my experience at university and in my spare time. Namely, my public speaking, inter-personal and teamwork skills are highly developed. I have an effective management style that enforces discipline whilst at the same time encourages creativity and debate.
I am the Social Secretary of our University's Creative Writing Society as well as the Co-Artistic Director of the student-led initiative, the International Student Theatre Festival. I have also published several of my works in magazines and journals through Exeter.
As a part-time Healthcare Assistant, I have expertise in working in both a 1:1 and busy environment. I have worked in very difficult situations where skills such as patience, leadership, innovation, quick-thinking and adaptability have been greatly required. My nature and job is to care and comfort and thus working in the health industry has definitely boosted my teaching experience and abilities.
I am happy to work with students who have learning disabilities, or who need extra help, although my rate will be a bit higher, and this can be discussed privately, along with any specified support needed for the student. I also have a cancellation policy for my lessons: if you cancel the lesson less than 24 hours before the start time, you will still be expected to pay the full charge rate. These details can also be discussed more if any further clarifications are needed.

Perfect! Ever since I took acting classes with Ridhi, I have become a better actor and my confidence is definitely improved. Ridhi is a very friendly and professional acting tutor/couch. She starts her class with basic warm ups which really helps relaxing the nerves, then her lesson plan is according to the needs and weakness of the students. She makes sure that the end of each and every lesson her students have learnt something new. I highly recommend Ridhi as an excellent tutor for acting skills and acting craft and to gain real confidence.
Khalid is a committed, passionate and self-driven student, who is keen to pursue his love for acting and is focused on getting his big break! He is professional and fun to work with, always smiling and ready to learn. I think his biggest weakness is his lack of confidence in himself as both and individual and an actor. He needs to believe in himself more, be more assertive, and persevere despite any rejections and challenges he may overcome, focusing on the rainbow instead of the rain!
Ridhi has a uniquely bubbly personality, as well as a strong passion for teaching and helping others to do their best.
I would definitely definitely recommend her as a tutor because of her kind and friendly nature, and her ability to explain things in a clear and impartial manner :)
Ridhi is great with children, has a lot of patience and finds fun ways of teaching them. She has looked after my 2 girls and is a great role model. Very engaging and enthusiastic!
Ridhi has tutored my daughter 10yr old daughter in creative writing. Ridhi has an art for making children feel comfortable in their skin to bring out the best of their ideas. She is kind, understanding and challenges children to stretch themselves. Uses role play and art to provide perspective.
I recomend Ridhi to anyone, she builds confidence in children and helps them achieve their best.
Ridhi is easy going, approachable and good at explaining things. She will help you to understand what you need to know. She is kind, patient and most of all good fun.
I recommend her to you; Ridhi can definitely build your confidence in your learning...and I bet you enjoy her company.
She was a student at our school and I was fortunate enough to have her board in my boarding house.
I worked closely with Ridhi while she volunteered as an academic coach with CoachBright. Ridhi was always super prepared for her 1-1 sessions with her coachee and put in a great deal of effort throughout! Always kind, patient and great at providing helpful guidance/advice. We thought she did a wonderful job at CoachBright and therefore I am more than happy to recommend her as a tutor/coach! :)
Ridhi has a lively, energetic personality. She’s very passionate about anything drama related & will help you bring out the best of your acting skills! She’s patient and willing to go over things until you’re fully satisfied with yourself :)
