Hi, My name is Mala Chatterjee and I have been teaching Communicative English for the past 22 years.
People from all walks of life have trained and benefitted.Senior VPs and Managers of multinationals,engineers and doctors, house wives and students poised to take off in their respective careers have been my trainees.
I believe that if both the teacher and the student take one step forward, they can go beyond the expected achievement.
My expertise stands out because of my wide range of interactive experience; more than 20,000 students in 22 years. This large volume has helped me to be insightful and perceptive ,sensitive to each student's individual needs and help them overcome challenges and draw out the most reticent of English speakers.
Each student is unique. I enjoy customising my teaching to tailor the needs of every student.
I trained under mala for 5 years in different capacities and she has been my favorite teacher through out . Kind, caring and knowledge able about her subject she one amazing teacher !
It was an excellent experience working with English and Communication skills training. The course and content was exactly what you need to hone your communication skills and English speaking and writing abilities. I thank my trainer and mentor Mala Ray Chatterjee for her guidance and support even after the completion of the course. Thank you!
Mala is the most passionate and thoughtful teacher I’ve ever had . She taught us while I worked in a software company as a fresher and I learnt so much not only about English but communication in general . Thank you for the great lessons.
Mala took the time out to understand my needs and where I lacked the most . She spent time and effort understanding my background and taught me based on my level . It has been10 years but I still remember everything from her class
Learning involves individual processes. Depending on the student's requirement the process is established. My teaching is learner centric with the teacher as the facilitator and coach. Learner activity is highlighted and organised with feedback.
I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Teaching English, with Phonetics, Methods of teaching English and Usage of English as some of my papers.
A Master's in English Literature, my special paper was Linguistics.
I also have a certification from ATD in Creating Leadership in organisations.
Communication Skills -$ 20 per hour
Presentation Skills - $30 per hour
In 1996, I resigned from the post of Lecturer in English to start my own Spoken English Institute in Hyderabad, India, because I believed that English being the language for intra as well as international communication I could contribute to learning and enriching students' professional lives.
I have worked with students who know just a smattering of English, who speak and write grammatically incorrect English to Corporate honchos who look at bettering their communication, verbal and written.
I took a few sessions for Girl Scouts, teaching them how to make cookies and volcano cakes; I look back in fond memory.
The children were a pleasure to teach; I learnt to be patient with 5 to 7 year olds.
Their enthusiasm and keenness to learn was infectious,time flew past in a jiffy!
One should look for a teacher who has linguistic as well as communicative competence, one who is patient with students' errors and has the ability to listen to learner needs and facilitate accordingly.
Students should analyze
1) Their need. What should I learn and why is it important.
2) How am I going to improve
3) Have realistic expectations
4) What goals will be met
