Background

I taught Business English to over 200 students of Master’s 1st and 2nd year for a total of over 400 hours in-classroom. I also conducted over 45 conversation sessions in smaller groups. (2019-20)

Prior to that, I worked as an English language assistant at a middle school and a high school in France where I worked with 240 students between the ages of 14 and 20 and we focused on English conversations, and we also studied specific topics in more detail. (2018-19)

I have had over 11 years of experience in the field of finance and accounting. However, I wanted to explore careers and do something more people centric. I like having a positive impact on someone’s life and sharing my passion for languages. I started teaching English in 2018 and I really enjoy it.

Laurence

Perfect! Je fais des sessions avec Ritika depuis plusieurs semaines déjà. Je me suis tout de suite sentie entre bonnes mains avec elle et en confiance. Elle m’a mise à l’aise rapidement et soutient avec une grande efficacité mes apprentissages. Elle m’offre des corrections très pertinentes lorsque je parle à l’oral, elle m’offre des devoirs sur des sujets précis lorsque nous en ressentons le besoin (p.ex., sur de la grammaire) et le matériel pédagogique qu'elle utilise est très bien fait. Elle fait également des suivis fréquents avec moi sur mon appréciation du travail que nous faisons ensemble et ajuste nos sessions selon mes commentaires. Elle est également très professionnelle, toujours à l’heure, toujours très bien préparée, ce que j’apprécie énormément. J’ai beaucoup de plaisir à faire mes sessions avec elle et je sens que mes habiletés en anglais s'améliore rapidement. C’est donc sans hésitation que je la recommanderais à mes proches ou amis!

I had the opportunity to work with Ritika two years ago as she was a french assistant in our vocational school.
It was interesting the way she adapted to our only in english lessons and also the way she told us about her country of origine India.
We made a good team and the pupils loved listening to her with her little accent.
We also had the opportunity to exchange recipes from france and from India.
She also improved a lot in her speaking and writing French.

I would really recommend her as a teacher as she is also a great personality and an interesting person to have met both as a teacher and on a personal ground.

Je reconnais Ritika parce qu’elle est dans la même classe de français que moi. C’est une participante dynamique, motivée, ponctuelle et régulière. Elle s’investit beaucoup dans son apprentissage et elle remet toujours ses tâches à temps. Je me suis toujours dit que si elle s’investit autant en tant qu’étudiante, c’est sûr qu’elle s’investira autant en tant que professeure. Elle est une personne organisée, respectueuse, soucieuse du travail bien fait. Elle respecte toujours les dates de remise des travaux. Elle pose toujours des questions pertinentes. J’ai appris à la connaître parce que souvent nous travaillons ensemble, nous faisons des présentations et nous discutons souvent des notions un peu abstraites. Je recommande Ritika parce que je sais qu’elle est une personne responsable, sérieuse, consciencieuse, dynamique, qui cherche toujours à s’améliorer et qui est professionnelle.

Ritika's interview

QUESTION 01 | 05
When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
Ritika — I have had a keen interest in teaching since my early childhood years when I used to imitate being a teacher to my younger siblings. The process of learning and teaching comes naturally to me. English used to be my favorite subject as a student and going back to the days of my early childhood when I'd imitate the speaking and writing English even when I didn't quite understand it.
QUESTION 02 | 05
What makes you passionate about your subject?
Ritika — The fact that languages allow one to connect with others. I love connecting with people around the world and learning about them. There is no better way of doing that other than by being articulate and receptive enough. Languages open the door to the world we didn't know existed.
QUESTION 03 | 05
What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Ritika — Tutoring allows me a gateway to connect with a great diversity of individuals who are all so special in their own way. It is wonderful to be able to connect with them and learn from them through this opportunity. Regarding what makes me a Superprof, I'll let my students be the best judge for that. I intend to serve them, to help them achieve their goals. Being able to add value to my students brings me a great deal of satisfaction.
QUESTION 04 | 05
Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you? Please explain.
Ritika — I'm inspired by many people from different walks of life - people in my family, my teachers, my ex-colleagues, my friends and my students. I'm always ready to pick up great things from others.
QUESTION 05 | 05
What are your keys to success?
Ritika — Listening, attention and consistent action.
