Mrs. Titiksha Singh
I was born in Agra, India where I completed my bachelor’s degree in science and master’s degree in botany. Then, I came to California in 2000 to do microbiology and pharmacy. I have tutored kids and I love to be around them! Their questions help me to improve as a teacher.
My goal is to help the children succeed in their classes and improve as a student while enjoying themselves. I’m happy to share your child’s Kindergarten year at Tulip school where we connect students to their unique future! I look forward to building a strong parent-child-teacher relationship at Tulip.

I am passionate about teaching and interested in working with children. I am eager to support students as they learn and grow. My strengths are adaptable, responsible ,patience, child care, organizational skills, teamwork, and computer skills. I did my Master of Science in Computer Science in the University of Madras. I have been living in Cupertino since my daughter started her schooling in Garden Gate Elementary School. I help out in her school by volunteering for her classes in working with students for writing workshops, art, and other activities. Then, I started volunteering at Faria Elementary School since my son started his schooling in Faria Elementary School. In Faria Elementary School I helped Mr.Fifer(A teacher) by working with students who needed help or extra attention, doing math paper corrections, and in class activities. I have volunteered and worked in the Faria library for four years. Also, I’m working as a substitute teacher in California Tamil Academy. I like to eat outside and like to go on long walks with my family and friends. I also enjoy working here at Tulip and I am hoping to learn more teaching skills to further help many students succeed.
