Brand Ethos

‘How’ you learn is more important than ‘what’ you learn – a thought that shapes everything I do. Empowering people with the capacity to teach those for whom learning is a challenge defines my work. I believe the answers lie in interactions between teachers and students; for learning is personal, social, cultural and contextual.

Once you know how to connect the dots, you will realise that ‘awakening brilliance’ is only a matter of learning differently. Because everyone is different in their own beautiful, captivating way.

About Me

Dr. Bindiya Hassaram

Dr. Bindiya Hassaram


I have a Ph. D. in Multicultural Special Education from the University of Texas at Austin. Until recently, I held the position of Middle/High School Learning Coach at the American School of Bombay, India.

Here I consulted, collaborated and co-taught with teachers from Grade 6 - 10. I also worked with students identified with learning differences, and those at-risk.  I have taught students of all ages (from Pre K - 12), in international schools in both Indonesia, the UK and the US.

I have supervised and mentored novice special education and EAL teachers, and provided professional development in various topics including differentiated instruction, inclusion, and culturally responsive instruction.

I work with individuals and groups, providing services such as remediation, professional development, mentoring and coaching.


“Bindiya worked with our son for 18 months while we were stationed in Mumbai. I cannot begin to express the impact that she has had on our son. Not only has she turned around a child who thought he was ‘stupid’ and ‘dumb’ into a teenager who regularly wins awards and prizes for his academics, this new confidence has also turned a shy and introverted child into a youth leader and peer mentor.” Parent of a 13 year old student

“A person who makes difficult learning easy for you—even when she is talking about learning difficulties. A person who truly believes in and advocates for inclusion. A person who goes beyond her committed tasks to deliver the best! That is Bindiya! :)” Akanksha

“Thank You for being my second mother in school. You are someone I look up to when i am struggling with something. I will miss this so much. Thank you for being there for me. I love you.”
