Information About Kate - Bordon teacher - (13 reviews)
This is how 3 referees rated Kate:
Hi! I am an experienced teacher of beginner piano, beginner recorder, and beginner music theory. I also accompany instrumental and voice students for music exams.
I have been teaching the piano, recorder and music theory to beginners of all ages for a number of years and am registered with ABRSM to enter candidates for exams.
I make music lessons fun, and have been described by a pupil as 'the best piano teacher ever'. Another pupil has recently written, 'I have had a brilliant term with you. I really enjoy you teaching me how to play the piano.' I ensure that the pupil makes good progress in the lesson so that they feel confident when they practise during the week.
I lead my pupils in many musical games - clapping, singing back, pacing the floor, rhythm duets - which they love and which are brilliant for teaching vital musical skills. I have my preferred books for teaching but am happy to use whatever books students come along with, if they already have books. I develop a close relationship with my pupils, in which they feel safe and respected; this means the pupils have great fun and are motivated to practise well during the week.

I thoroughly recommend her. I’ve stopped temporarily due to work commitments but hope to start lessons with Kate again in the new year.
Even over a relatively short space of time, we have noticed a distinct improvement in both their written work and comprehension, and generally I think both children are feeling positive about their progress and how they can develop in the future.
She has managed to encourage and motivate them going as far as suggesting great books and material and sending us early feedback on their progress. She rates very high so far on: "Positive learning environment , Supporting with adequate materials , Planning designed for each student, Providing feedback to parents and welcoming their input, and above all making learning normal and interesting for our children"
We are very grateful to have found Kate and wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a tutor.
