Vaishali Patel has been teaching Gujarati language and culture to adults and children since 2002.
Growing up in Baroda, India and immigrating permanently to the United States at age 16, Vaishali is uniquely positioned with a view into the best of both worlds.
Living in an extended Gujarati family inspired Vaishali to pass along the value of her homeland traditions to her own 2 children by teaching them and others in the community.
Her outreach programs have since expanded to include virtual (live online) Gujarati Classes, an online course that can be done at your own pace, learning tools such as the Gujarati and Hindi Memory Games and Gujarati Alphabet Flashcards as well as a travel backpack customized for learning about India.
We are a small team of women dedicated to bringing the joy to preserving Gujarati culture and guiding Sanskar Teaching to reach as many as possible.
And we absolutely adore our beautiful Founder, Vaishaliben.
