Information About Chris - Lytham St. Annes teacher - (4 reviews)
This is how 3 referees rated Chris:
I've been a Programme Leader for Music at a local college. I am a Standards Verifier for BTEC Music. I have played professionally in musical theatre and pantomime bands, most recently playing with the Blackpool Tower Circus Band. I play bass in two local dance bands and have played with several rock and soul groups, gigging across the North-West on the pub and corporate circuits. I also sing, and play guitar and sax.
I taught Maths up to A Level for 18 years at four different secondary schools in Merseyside, Essex, Oldham and Manchester with a good success rate at GCSE. I went on to teach BTEC Music to students from age 16 to 60 for 8 years. Throughout this career I tutored small groups and individual students in addition to the normal timetables and classes, and supported friends and relatives through their Maths exams. I'm now semi-retired and missing the teaching - but not the bureaucracy! I do also work as an invigilator at a local high school.
Every student has different needs, so my approach is tailored to their requirements. I will recognise strengths and weaknesses and create an individual scheme of work to target the next Associated Board grade. I teach Music Theory and bass guitar up to grade 4. If tutees prefer the Rock School grades, then fine, although I do not teach slap bass.
For anyone needing support in a Music Degree or BTEC Music, I can help with approaches to essays or dissertations in the areas of popular music history, music in society, music contracts/business or listening skills.
If you need Maths tuition, I do that too!
