Neshni Naidoo

Edu-Coach is an extension of me, so I wanted to share a little about myself. 

I have been married for 24 years and have 3 intelligent, creative but strong-willed sons (9, 13 and 16 years old). My background is in Engineering but I have a creative side as well – writing poetry and singing. 

In 2004, I left work as a Chemical Engineer when I fell pregnant with my first child. While serving in the spiritual organization I belong to, I found my calling – teaching. Since I wanted to be at home for my children, I opted to become an Entrepreneur instead of teaching at a school. 

In 2010, I joined the Experi-Buddies Franchise where I shared my love of Science with 6-9 yr olds. 

In 2013, I launched Vedic Maths Forum South Africa where I promoted Vedic Maths – a Mental Maths program that originated in India. 

However in my interaction with parents, teachers and children, I realised our children need more than Maths or Science tutoring. 

Thus Edu-Coach was born – a support platform for children and their parents. 

In the past 7 years, I have advised parents, helped students overcome anxiety, built their confidence, empowered them with study skills, motivated and sometimes  – just listened. 

For the last 10 years, I’ve curated and created resources to help children understand themselves, learn effectively and understand the school content. 

I am honoured to share my knowledge with you so that you may help your children.
