Educator | Ed entrepreneur | Illustrator | Parent of two teens
Pooja is a trained Educator, an Ed Entrepreneur and a parent of two teen boys.
Her Insights over the past two years as parent:
Children are more receptive to learning from adults outside their familiar environment (read - parents or teacher). In other words ‘Mentors’ are more effective to propel them on the path of self-development, building social skills and career development, as this bonding starts without any pre-conceived notions.
It’s a bond of trust!
If you are in similar spot, where you want your child to be more confident, expressive or take onus of their self- development, Pooja is ready to share what she has learned first hand- the art of striking a fine balance between holding hands and letting them go.
Pooja's goal is to empower your child with life skills that will add that extra spark, for them to stand out for the unique gifts they have.
Every problem has a creative solution

WHY POOJA'S EXPRESSSO?
CEO & Founder HED;
Managing Partner BeyonDiversity
Over the decade that I’ve known her, Pooja’s flair of connecting with children has always been one of the qualities that I’ve admired. She is passionate to help out children through her detailed observations, counselling skills, and knowledge- all through very creative and fun methods. Her strengths are patience, listening skills and giving eye to details. Young children find her fun, loveable, approachable, and warm!
My daughters aged 7 and 10 have taken and honed their knowledge under Pooja’s guidance, during 2020 and 2021. My apprehension as a mother initially was , how well will the teaching be on an online platform . I enrolled only for 1 class then, to understand her teaching methodology and most importantly her interaction and bonding with my daughters in the virtual world. I was amazed at how she bridged the gap between being physically present and patiently listening to each child with their related / unrelated conversations and ideas on a screen. She has been very encouraging as a teacher to develop individuality and confidence in my 10 yr old. My daughter thrives on knowledge of history, discovery and inventions but lacked the skill to bring it out , which over her multiple sessions with Pooja , she has been able to inculcate and share her learning with others . Pooja has played a significant role during the stressful lock downs and home bound life for my children. I wish her the best and may she continue to share her techniques, knowledge, and warmth all around.

I am absolutely enjoying all of the sessions, especially the daily activities and the HUSSIGNMENT.They are like the cherry on top. The ExpressSo workbook is also extremely helpful, I love the designs and the activities that are printed in there. The sessions are very fun. The interaction with all the teens and pre - teens is also very enjoyable. Looking forward to the upcoming sessions
