Ritu is a Cambridge University Press Resource Person for phonics and is a passionate and creative teacher. She graduated with Honours in Zoology Science and was a post graduate in computer Management. She then received Montessori training and has worked in Kindergarten for more than a decade, as a teacher and curriculum planner. She has been teaching with Jolly Phonics since 2014 and has also supported more than 300 teachers in and around Pune by sharing her Jolly Phonics experiences with them.

Ritu runs ‘Phonics Mantra’, a literacy centre for learning phonics and grammar. As she strongly believes in the Jolly Phonics and Grammar methodology, this is the primary teaching method used at Phonics Mantra. Ritu has seen the multi-sensory programme working in a wonderful and effective way for every child. She was amazed to see the struggling children and even children with Dyslexia become confident in their reading and writing over a short span of time. The programme brings immense joy to both teachers and students, seeing the results of acquiring confidence and ability to read and write.

Ritu can offer teachers, individuals, schools and training institutes the guidance in learning the fantastic Jolly Phonics method and effectively use this in their annual school curriculum.
