Shilpa has been working with DAS International as a Senior Specialist Teacher since 2013.
She started her teaching career with a private preschool in Singapore, which catered to children of various nationalities. After her stint with the school for 5 years, Shilpa decided to equip herself with skills to help children with learning difficulties. She trained in the Orton-Gillingham Approach and later obtained a Dyslexia Diploma to teach children with special learning needs.
Before joining DAS International in April 2013, Shilpa taught Literacy and Maths to students with multiple learning difficulties including dyslexia, dyscalculia, and ADHD for about 6 years as a private tutor. Most of her students are from lower and upper primary levels and come from a mix of local and international schools.
Having a strong background and interest in Mathematics drives Shilpa to cultivate a love of the subject in her students. Her aim is to understand the strengths, weaknesses and learning styles of children in order to design individualised programmes to help and motivate them to achieve their targets. She believes that it is important to build a strong rapport with students and create a conducive learning environment for the smooth delivery of knowledge.
