Information About Rebecca - Woking teacher - (3 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Rebecca:
I am currently a masters student at the Royal Academy of Music, studying the cello full time, whilst also undertaking my LRAM teaching qualification. I have an LRSM in the cello and a DipABRSM in the piano so have studied both these instruments to a high level. I enjoy teaching cello and piano to all ages as I feel that teaching is one of the fundamental parts of being a musician.
While I was at Oxford University, I had a couple of cello pupils. My biggest success was getting an almost complete beginner through her grade 2 within 1 year - testimony to her hard work and dedication. I have also had a lot of work experience within primary schools, working as a classroom assistant and lunchtime supervisor, and have done outreach music work within schools.
My approach to music teaching if flexible and entirely dependent on the pupil: everyone learns in different ways and at different rates. I work with a positive attitude and always encourage the pupil to have as much say in how the lessons are run as I do. I am friendly and supportive, as well as a good listener. I hope to not just teach within the lesson setting, but also set the pupil up with good practice methods as well as goals to help with motivation.

However, she seems to be always rather busy, and communication is rather poor. There is a long lag between texts when arranging appointments, around 2-3 days. While this may be acceptable among friends, she can probably work on this aspect of her professionalism a lot more.
Overall, at this stage of her career, she comes across strongly as a performer rather than a tutor. This suits us adequately for now, but it may not be what every family is looking for long term.
