Information About Amy - Broadstairs teacher - (2 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Amy:
I am Taiwanese married and living in England. I have traveled widely and experienced different cultures. After working abroad with the British Army in Germany we now live on the East Cliff in Ramsgate, my husbands home town. In my life, from childhood, I have played the piano regularly, including professionally. I come from a very musical family, but most Taiwanese families are the same. Learning an instrument, including piano, is far more common in Taiwan than the UK, almost part of our culture.
I have taught many students on a one to one basis in Taiwan and also in Germany. In Germany we lived for 6 years on a British Army base, and I taught up to 25 children a week, different ages, and different levels. I had a waiting list of children, in what was a high turnover environment. I only "lost" students when their parents were posted.
Additionally, I worked as a Classroom Assistant in the local British Junior School, and was often involved in musical aspects including responsibility for the Christmas Concert which was always fun working with the children.
I have no formal UK qualifications.
Each student is different, in terms of motivation, personality, concentration and ability. So, my approach to each child is different, depending on the circumstances and the goals of the student. For sure, I have taught a whole spectrum of children and the main aim is to develop rapport with them individually to encourage their best. In Germany, many of my students had had lessons and teachers in the UK, and their parents were more than happy with my approach and the results. Generally, for younger children, I would advise only 30 minutes for lessons, as concentration wanes after that. This, of course, can be reviewed.
