Akanksha Sadana-Raswant is the Founder and Private Tutor of Wholistic Tutoring. She has a Master of Arts in Childhood Education and a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing. Akanksha spent six years in the classroom and currently works at The Dalton School as a reading specialist and tutor. Prior to this, she taught at The Town School for four years.
Akanksha coaches a range of learners, supporting children in strengthening skills and concepts, while empowering them to deepen their knowledge by highlighting areas where they feel most successful. She has experience teaching a variety of literacy and math programs, and adapts curriculum to ensure she is meeting each child's learning needs. Hands-on learning, creativity, real-world connections, and technology are integrated into sessions to support and enable critical thinking skills.
In addition to supporting children academically, Akanksha is a strong believer in opening the world of mindfulness to her students and their families. She has been trained in mindfulness by Mindful Schools, and has her own daily practice that supports her work. Growing up, Akanksha’s mother introduced her to the concept of deep breathing and meditation. As a result, she experienced calmness, increased attention, and became more self-aware. The positive effects from practicing mindfulness at an early age is the inspiration behind “mindful moments” that she incorporates into most tutoring sessions. Akanksha's intention is to help children become more focused learners who are aware of themselves and the world surrounding them.
During her free time, you can find Akanksha at the gym or drinking coffee at a local cafe with her husband and puppy.
