My name is Vandana.
I am an overseas qualified teacher. I did my Bachelor of Arts and Masters of Arts (English) followed by Bachelor of Education (English and Social Studies) from India.
I worked as teacher for nearly 2.5 years in India and had the opportunity to teach various subjects from Year3-Year8 as well as carry out the responsibilities of a class teacher.
I came to the UK in 2011.
I worked for a local primary school for three years here in the UK from September 2011-August 2014. I worked as a LSA and SEN TA. I helped the kids with ongoing Maths, English, IT and Science lessons and everything else that was being done in the class as a whole. I was also responsible to make my own lessons for the little group of children I worked with. I also took extra reading sessions at this school to help a few children reach their expected goals and prepare them for their SATs.
I want to tutor as it will give me the flexibility to work and still be able to look after my toddlers. I have always enjoyed teaching a lot. I am really looking forward to work as a tutor as I quite enjoyed the 1:1 sessions that I had with kids in the primary school here in the UK. Working 1:1 helped me to get to know the children, their abilities a lot better and it also allowed me to work at their pace. I could easily amend my lessons and pace making sure that we are getting the best learning outcomes for the children. I like to pre plan my lessons and work with the children to find the best ways to teach and learn. I have always liked to work with the children rather than just delivering my planned lessons.
