Vishakha is a very dedicated and passionate teacher. I most like that she adapts her lessons to individual needs. She manages to create a good learning atmosphere and can contribute to a wide range of topics through her broad knowledge. Vishakha has already helped me a lot, and I can definitely recommend her.
She's incredibly understanding and flexible with her timings. I even recommended her to a friend of mine. Very helpful. She also helps with motivation.
Vishakha is an excellent tutor which I can highly recommend. With her impressive professional background she immediately understood all topics I wanted to discuss with her, namely business accounting and corporate finance. Vishakha presented these areas in an understandable and fun way, but was also able to respond to more in-depth queries when needed. I'm very grateful for her support and guidance and am extremely satisfied with the experience.
Very useful classes! Also very helpful and explains step by step to make sure you understand. She always finds away to make sure you understand. Highly recommended!
Very useful class, the teacher is very helpful and knowledgable. I recommend it.

MAKING ONESELF HEARD! (For Public Speaking & Presentations)
Explore Public Speaking through... Intonation and Melody When training for a presentation, decide which words and passages deserve extra attention and increase the tone to emphasize these points. If something sounds exaggerated or false, your audience can turn against you. Volume A speech is not ordinary conversation, and a presenter can’t convey passion and enthusiasm if the words are delivered softly. Clarity Don’t forget to articulate every word, to ensure clarity on your part and understanding on the part of the audience. Emphasis Even in the same sentence, emphasizing different words can change the focus of a message. Changing emphasis can alter meaning and/or implication. Pauses when pauses are placed in strategic spots in a speech, they can make the difference between a good and an excellent presentation. There are several purposes for which pauses can be used: to give listeners a chance to absorb something that’s just been said; to generate expectations about something that’s going to be said... Pacing & Tone If you often get negative feedback about the faster or slower delivery of your speeches, practice delivering a speech sometimes faster and sometimes slower, so you can arrive at a natural pace.
