    Dr. Pattabi is a great teacher and helped me during my GCSEs in Physics, Chemistry, Biology as well as Math to be able to get 9s in each of them and helped me for my A levels in these areas too. He’s a very caring and considerate teacher that brings out the best in you and helped me get into Medicine at university.

    VCP was very pivotal throughout the most critical part of my education. I started going to VCP from year 10 till 13 and before that I took my learning at a slower pace – content with learning alongside the class. While this was a decent approach to my learning – the further topics covered during my time at VCP made me realise how useful being ahead of the class truly is. It furthered my understanding, made the subjects much more enjoyable and much easier for me to comprehend as I could now ask much more relevant questions in lessons and etc. Coupled with this, we did a lot of practice papers which meant I was solidifying my knowledge at a rapid pace. Overall, it was a good experience as it opened me to new ways of studying that I hadn’t considered before.

    I work for VCP and also attended the tuition while doing my a levels. The level of support I received was amazing and the environment created by both Mrs Revathi and Pattabi sir made me want to work for them and help more students the same way they have helped me.

    VCP has been a great family to be a part of throughout my journey through A Levels and some aspects of my university application process. Dr Pattabhi and Mrs Revathi are so loving and caring, and do anything to support the needs of their students!

      Thanks (Dr) Sarayu, your sincere effort has paid off, all the best!

    I was a student at VCP for around 4 years, during which Dr Pattabhi helped push me to my potential. For example I was getting consistent 4’s in Chemistry in Year 11, but in the final result, with Sir’s hard work and dedicated time, I achieved a 9, and I am confident no one else would’ve had the same impact. Now I’m at Warwick University studying MORSE having achieved A*AA at A level.

    Sir will go above and beyond just to make sure you are happy in your learning, whilst at the same time, creating a unique bond with his students. He has a deep understanding on every topic he teaches, and if there is any subject you’re struggling in, he’ll make sure to be there. He even taught himself the whole of the Electronics GCSE syllabus, just so he could help me in my struggles.

    I highly recommend VCP to anyone who is struggling in their school work. I wish VCP all the success in the future, and would like to thank you for helping me at such a crucial stage.

    Dr Pattabi and Mrs Raman have helped me since the start of GCSEs and for the last 4 years. I have studied a range of subjects at the centre and have been taught very difficult topics. Sir has always gone above and beyond to help be that with online resources to extra online lessons in the morning before my exams. I could not have asked for a better center to be taught in and I look forward to staying in touch with everyone. I am now going on to do a degree apprenticeship with JP Morgan and Exeter university in fiance and I wouldn’t have been able to reach this stage without the tremendous amount of support from the centre.

    Dr Patthabi is a very good tutor and is an excellent tutor who pays attention to the quality of teaching. I came to VCP almost at the last minute to reapply to Imperial College and with his help, I managed to get the offer without any problems. Massive thank you to VCP, who helped me at the hour of need.

  8. Bini

    Dr Pattabhi is an excellent teacher with great knowledge. He is very patient with students and make sure they understand very well. He always pushes students to get the maximum achievement. He is very intelligent and very responsible with students to get the top grade. We are so grateful to Sir for the achievements my children had. Thank you sir.

    My daughter will be going to year 11. She has been at VCP for more than a year now.
    The attitude of Revathi ma’am and Pattabhi sir is not a professional one, it is more like that of a guardian. Despite having very reasonable charges, they keep providing stuff like books, free food to children (as the sessions can be long). They also take care that the children do not get jaded, and sir loads them up in his huge van, takes then to a nearby park for a quick break and fresh air.
    If the child signs up of taking early IGCSE, they help prepare the children and they take the children from Reading to the exam centre in Fareham (on the exam day), takes them to KFC on the way to the exam centre and also on the way back. All of this without charges, again.
    In one single charge, they provide classes for a number of subjects.

    They also set up nominal and symbolic cash rewards for most of the assignments and huge rewards for great GCSE performance.

    Also VCP runs a whatsapp group for the parents and there is a very good interactive feedback system.

    I couldn’t recommend VCP highly enough.

    Mr Pattabhi and Mrs Pattabhi have been amazing teachers to both of my daughters. The two teachers are not hesitant to spending extra time with students and form a unique relationship with each student . They help to target areas of weakness and give the proper resources needed to sit exams. My younger daughter recently Sat the maths offer and achieved an 8 which is an a star. Additionay my elder daughter just got her gcse results and achieved 9 in maths and 8 in the sciences. We would definitely recommend vcp tuition as a go to if your child needs additional help in certain subjects especially maths and the sciences.

  11. Annsari

    Dr Pattabhi & Mrs Revathi are excellent teachers and know well how to provide a holistic approach in developing childs intellectual abilities. My daughter has benefitted from their approach and I sincerely thank them both for contributing towards her success in achieving a place in medicine.

    Dr.Pattabhi is a very great teacher and taught my son for over a year. He understood all of his lessons and his grades has improved since he first joined.Dr Pattabhi encourages my son so that he can achieve top grades and he gives the class a steady amount of homework. He is a good listener , approachable and always tries to help my son. He always encourages my son and make him comfortable so that he can understand his topic well in order to achieve his goal. He always gives me feedback about his strength and weakness so that he can improve and be successful. After doing 2 IGCSE exams (chemistry and Maths) he has gained so much knowledge and he is top in his class. Thank you very much for teaching my son . I wish you all the best.

    Over the course of my final year of Reading School, Mr. Raman helped me a lot with A level further maths. He was very patient with a great ability to explain the complex maths to me. He learned my whole syllabus in his free time then taught it to me. It ended up being my best A level subject and I am now studying Mathematics at Kings College London. Overall, if you have the chance to be tutored by Mr Raman you’re very lucky! I couldn’t have asked for more.

    We describe Dr Kaur as a gift to our family. Her enthuasism, dedication and belief in our daughter has had far reaching tendrils for Madison and therefore for all of us. I wish we had found Dr Kaur sooner. Madison is not an A* student in ability but in her work ethic she certainly is so Dr Kaur worked her hard and helped her reach her potential. Although the focus was English the impact was on all subjects. I think that whatever your child’s ability they will be nurtured.

    I spent 2 years having tuition with Mr Pattabhi and I wouldn’t change that for anything. He was always dedicated and motivated to get the best out of me and pushed me to my boundaries to ensure I was fulfilling my potential. The help he gave me was beyond the help I found online or in textbooks and regardless of my situation he always made time to support and help me out when needed. Despite other commitments, he made sure I had the resources and space to complete all work to the best of my ability.

    He taught me A-Level Mathematics and A-Level Physics and really helped me increase my mathematical skills as well as practical skills beyond what I thought I was capable of. He is very motivated to ensure his students do well and achieve success and I’m sure anyone who takes tuition with Mr. Pattabhi is bound to do well if you work in collaboration with him.

    I have now moved to the United States where after successfully completing my A Levels, I am now studying for a degree in Aerospace Engineering. I would like to thanks Mr Pattabhi for his hard work and help and I hope to see VCP grow successfully.


  16. Mrs Palanikumar

    My daughter, who is studying in year-7, trained for IGCSE Maths with VCP for about six months. In a couple of months, she had developed an attitude of having fun while tackling problems and has now achieved an ‘A’ grade. She had found the whole process demanding as well as interesting and is more open to taking up challenges.

    Mr & Mrs Pattabhi had always been there for support and help raise the confidence by challenging to the right level. I would thank them for going that extra-mile and wish them all the best in their endeavours.

  17. Raj Odedra

    I attended tuition with Mr Pattabhi for a whole year and saw significant results. He taught me AS and A2 mathematics and physics. In AS before attending tuition I was on a D. With his help (help doesn’t signify how much he helped me) I successfully got an A in Maths for my a-levels and am on my way to study Maths with Finance and Investment Banking at uni this year.
    He is not like any other tutor, the hospitality he gives as well as the tuition makes learning more comfortable and easier. But when it comes to getting down to work, he can teach! There are a lot who rely on textbooks etc but he can teach well and has been an amazing tutor. He motivated me to do well and not just for myself, there was a feeling to not want to disappoint him either.
    I know anyone who is looking for results will get it by going to Mr Pattabhi. He is very passionate about Virtual College and I can only hope for further growth. The flexibility he provides and great office space is important too and feels better than working at home.
    Thank you for all the help and I will continue to tutor at VCP also for as long as possible.

    Mr Pattabhi is a very knowledgeable teacher and has helped me greatly in the field of Mathematics. He has a deep understanding within the topic and presents his lessons in an easy to understand manner by thoroughly explaining each question in great detail. He has great confidence in the way he teaches and his caring and tolerant attitude is highly valued.

    He has recently assisted me in achieving a 97 mark in the UK Junior Maths Challenge, which has allowed me to continue to to the second round, ‘Olympiad’. This is something I am proud of.

    Overall I am extremely thankful for all the support he has given me in improving my mathematical understanding and would not hesitate to recomend him to anyone else wishing to improve their knowledge in a wide variety of subjects. I wish him all the very best in the future

    Thank you very much to mr and Mrs Raman also to Rahul for helping me with my work.
    I wish you all the very best!!!

    Dr Pattabhi has recently helped me prepare to sit my Physics AS exams. I found him very knowledgeable with a deep understanding of Physics. He also runs mock exam sessions where I had the opportunity to sit practice papers. I found these sessions really useful, in addition to practicing in a realistic exam setting, Dr Pattabhi was fantastic in talking through the papers with me, and helping me improve not only my knowledge of the subject, but also providing tips and techniques to maximise the points I achieved from each question. I would highly recommend the Virtual College, I have gained in confidence and am looking forward to working on my final A2 exams.

  21. Mary George

    Mr Pattabhi’s professionalism and caring attitude is highly valued. His teaching methods and perseverance has really helped my daughter understand the subject matter(Physics) as a whole and gain confidence in sitting for exams.

    The support and guidance to source resources for subjects to which he was not initially called upon is commendable. We would also like to thank Ms. Hasseba for the support given towards Biology.

    We would not hesitate to recommend Mr.Pattabi to anyone who requires Physics or Maths tutoring, and wish him all the very best .

  22. Christine Williams

    Mr Pattabhi – I would like to highlight his professionalism as a teacher, I am impressed with his approach towards students. My son is showing significant progress in his ability, independent, confident and motivated; his grades has improved which is evident of Mr Pattabhi’s help. I am really please he has this opportunity to be tutored by Mr Pattabhi as I can see a remarkable change in his grades. His teaching methods and strategies are really effective and he gives advise always conscientious in providing the best possible constructive direction on help towards students progress.

  23. Ananth

    Mr Pattabhi is an excellent tutor and has helped me out with my University Mathematics problems.He prepares in advance and explains how to do the questions in a way which is easy to understand. I would recommend him to other students struggling in Maths and I look forward to my upcoming lessons.

  24. Sampath

    Pattabi – He is a great teacher, highly interactive and is always willing to push you to your limit. He ensures that you can achieve your best and unlike any other teacher, he will make sure you understand what you are being taught the first time and not after 2 or 3 lessons. He has helped me achieve amazing grades and also a better understanding on the subjects that he has taught.

  25. Annie

    Pattabi is a very responsible teacher- always providing me with useful study materials, and giving (rather a lot of) homework- not that I object . He is a very patient teacher, and always makes sure that I understand the topic before moving on to the next. He encourages, but never pushes me out of my comfort zone, and this is what makes him such an able teacher. He can judge a pupil on their abilities, and use it to carefully plan a teaching method especially for them- making the lessons take a more personal approach. And lastly, he is a great motivator. He is ambitious for his students to work hard and to achieve the top grades- and this is what he has done for me. He is unlike the other teacher I’ve met, and in my opinion, he can guarantee to help you to achieve.
