This is how a referee rated Vatsala:
I am an experienced teaching assistant, currently working at Newbury Park Primary School and have previously worked at schools including Fullwood Primary and Clore Tikva School. I single-handedly taught both my children, who achieved level 3 for all subjects in their Year 2 SATS and level 5 and above for their Year 6 SATS exams. I also helped them with their 11+ exams and they went on to study at Ilford County High School and Woodford County High School.
I have tutored privately for over 4 years now with all students either meeting or exceeding their target grades. I have also prepared Phonics lessons and guided reading sessions.
I believe that all students have the potential to achieve immensely and that this is overlooked by teaching in schools as the teachers have to cater for the needs of the class as a whole instead of particular individuals.
I push my students to work independently and arrive at their own answers by questioning and guiding their thought process. I do not believe in spoon feeding as I know that this will mean that my students will struggle in later years, in university and beyond, where they have to figure out answers for themselves.
I set homework every lesson as well as setting monthly tests so that I can get a good idea of how much they have progressed and what they may need extra work on. I also call the parents of the students regularly so that they have an in-depth knowledge of progress and what is going on in the lesson.
Finally, I am caring and positive. I strongly believe that negativity discourages learning and always strive to encourage my students to do as well as they can.
