About Us

Who We Are

Eager Readers (ER) was started by Unnati Ved in April 2017 in Hyderabad. A TESOL, Communications and Speech and Drama certified teacher, she felt that there was a gap in the integration of reading, writing, speaking and listening skills amongst kids. ER is an attempt to fill this gap. ”When a child likes a story, connects with it, then getting into the skin of that character is seamless. Not only will the child never forget the story but will learn the art of drama and public speaking too.”, according to Unnati. All her sessions involve reading a book aloud and kids do public speaking and drama based on the theme of the book. She has a double master’s in finance and over 12 years of corporate finance experience. ER is her first independent venture. She leads a team of teachers who are also TRINITY certified.
