Leena is an experienced, patient and knowledgeable teacher. Her lessons are effective , engaging and fun. Her understanding of a child and choosing a teaching methodology accordingly, is really inspiring. I have learnt a lot as a teacher working with her. She is not only a great teacher/ tutor but a mentor too.

The testimony of your excellent art of teaching is well ingrained in the minds of your students at Ferozpur, Mellenum School Moira and your teacher colleagues. The Nerul Eye Level is your effort to venture into a New and Refined mode of teaching. Thousand of children who went through this method of innovative teaching too are testimony of your being a great teacher. Keep it up Leena Madam.
God bless and more spurs to your art of teaching.

Leena was my son's shadow teacher in class (grade 7-8) for a year until he was able to manage alone. Then Leena tutored my son after school. She was always prepared with a lesson, supported by a video, and an exercise for practice. She came to the home on 2 occasions when my son refused to go to school and was an expert at gently but firmly getting him out of bed to study more than he would have in school these days. LOL. She was always able to get my son to study even when we could not. When my son was in a bad mood, Leena would start with an exercise like "write what you feel when listening to this song". Next thing, my son would be picking his favorite song. Then he would be ready to study. Leena is calm, kind-hearted, clever. Leena's daughter was accepted at all the best universities in Canada. Need I say more?
