Personal Description:

I am an experienced full-time tutor who delivers high quality one-on-one education to my students. I have particular experience with neurodiverse and SEN pupils. My friendly personality, drive, and enthusiasm for the topics I teach allow me to advise and encourage my students as well as fostering an interest in the arts as a wider enterprise.

I have a keen interest in educational psychology and am passionate about engendering good learning practices and study techniques in my students. For each student, I create a unique lesson plan tailored to the needs. I strongly believe in creating a clear plan which allows students to see their progress. I adapt to each students needs and unique learning style as we progress.

I have a genuine passion for teaching and welcome students of all levels and musical background.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching for over eighteen years, and have taught early years through to retired adults. I enter students for exams on a regular basis and have a 100% pass rate, with over 85% of my students achieving a higher level than "Pass" (depending on exam board, e.g. "Merit" or "Gold").

I have completed additional training courses on how to teach children with dyslexia, anxiety, autism, social behavioural issues, and ADHD.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is quite simple - I believe if pupils have a good foundation in technique you can play practically anything. I tailor my lessons plans for each pupil and though I can be quite strict in terms of good technique I am open to whatever kind of music you would most like to learn. I like to incorporate the preferred music and genres of my pupils with their lessons!

I generally teach children aged 7 and older, though I do take students from the age of 5 if they are a) keen to learn, and b) able to keep focus for the duration of the lesson. I am happy to arrange a trial lesson for younger students to see if we might be a good fit.

I believe part of my job is building on and inspiring the initial enthusiasm of the pupil. In my experience children who have not expressed a particular interest in learning the instrument do not tend to do well in the long term.

I am available to teach via video call and also teach at the students home. I have experience with SEN students and have completed additional training courses on how to teach children with dyslexia, anxiety, autism, social behavioural issues, and ADHD.

As a teacher, it is my job to try and understand what approaches are most beneficial for my students whilst remaining a constant source of support, guidance, and encouragement throughout.
