“Prachi has been working with my daughter for a few months. She is patient, caring, and makes the student feel comfortable. She is always open to new strategies and goes the extra mile to ensure that she is bringing her all to her tutoring sessions. I would definitely recommend her. My daughter loves writing after working with Prachi.”

“Both our children ( grades 1 and 3) now at NCCS have done Pen Stars for two years. To our surprise, the kids both love this class. And even our son has written stories about sports that are pages long. He loves to read them aloud to his peers with confidence. I give great credit to Pen-Stars for inspiring and creating happy writers, well done!!!”
Mother, New Canaan Country School
“Dear Sushmita and Himani,
Thank you for giving us a Pen-Stars book. I really enjoyed writing in it. I am writing a book already. I really liked it when you read to us. Because of you I am writing a book that is actually more than one page. I hope you come for the lucky third graders next summer. I hope to see you again.

“Pen Stars has been a wonderful addition to my daughters’ after school programming. Prachi and Sushmita have developed a system to make reading and writing fun for both my 5 year old and 8 year old daughters. My daughter’s love of writing and confidence in her writing ability has flourished under Prachi’s guidance and support.”

The Pen-Stars Series is the creation of Sushmita and Himani Narayan, two sisters who realized that there were other kids in their school who were extremely talented, but who didn’t always have the motivation or the resources to showcase their talents.
The two children co-authored the first book of the Pen-Stars Series, Happy Celebrations, which motivated many other children to listen to their own inner creative voices.
They continued the series with a second volume: Baseball, Broccoli, Boats, and Bottles,which also features the collaborative talents of several local after-school Pen-Stars Creativity Club participants: Bhavya Pant, Nicholas Stern and A’merie Sphyrette.
We encourage all children to create their own stories and send them to us for a chance to be featured in the series, which is always in-progress so long as the program exists.
