Information About Elliot - Richmond upon Thames teacher - (5 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Elliot:
Elliot is an experienced, versatile and dedicated tutor of Violin and Viola who is studying a BMus(Hons) degree in Viola at the Royal College of Music. He is aged 22, and has a number of full-time pupils in the West and Central London areas, with two years experience as a staff String Teacher at Westminster City School, London.
I teach a healthy roster of 20 private students each week, and thoroughly enjoy working with every single one. All of my private students have to date had a 100% ABRSM instrumental pass rate. In the daytime I work as an associate strings teacher with the Richmond Music Trust, tutoring 55 students Violin and Viola in four schools weekly. Previously I spent two years working as the Strings Teacher at Westminster City School.
I have taught for four years both privately and in schools with consistently excellent feedback during my work with both full-time and more casual pupils, and am always looking to expand my teaching in the London Area. References can be made available from current pupils on request.
During my studies at the Royal College of Music I ran the 'RCM'Underground' Performance Platform and peer learning program and acted as a class co-ordinator, meaning that I worked alongside many Conservatoire level students in a pastoral and instructive role. I have taught on a number of Instrumental Teaching Courses in the south of England too. I am a Member of the European String Teacher's Association, Musician's Union and have a current Enhanced DBS check.
I teach in a relaxed, supportive and adaptive manner, taking the needs of the student into account. I am a great believer that encouragement inspires confidence, and work hard to build genuine rapport with my pupils. If a student needs the time, I will always endeavour to go above and beyond what is required of me to give them the support they need especially in terms of low-income students, where I am happy to negotiate affordable and constructive lesson plans.
I have a technical approach to working out issues with playing and am keen to work on aspects of a student's technique alongside their musical development. I work with students on all ABRSM exams from Grades I-VIII and am always seeking to encourage students to reach the limits of their potential.
