“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!

It is hard to find someone who combines technical knowledge with practical realities and designs a module that is customised and specifically suited to your needs.

We, the counseling team at Akanksha, were blessed to have such a person guiding and supporting us right from developing an understanding about LD to developing informal ways to assess LD.

The most commendable thing was her continued support post the program through an online tutorial platform and sharing resources so generously.”


“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.

Bindiya’s ‘each child is an individual’ philosophy means that she invested the time to get to know our son as a person, resulting in insights and learning strategies that totally suited him.

Consequently, he ‘totally got’ Bindiya and trusted her to take him out of his comfort zone. She simultaneously connected with us, as well as our son’s other teachers, to ensure that we were all on the same page all of the time.

We are now one year on from leaving Mumbai and Bindiya, but her legacy still remains. What she achieved, in the eighteen months that we were privileged to have together, built the solid foundation from which our son has continued to grow and develop.

We would highly recommend Bindiya as an exceptionally talented teacher and child advocate who is passionate about her calling.”
