Barnaby

Tower Hamlets Tutor

Hello! I'm a recent Music graduate from Oxford University, trained in both classical and jazz. I cover a range of disciplines within music, be that within the Western Classical tradition or areas further afield. I have taught large classes as well as individuals and am about to start a masters at Guildhall School of Music and Drama in September 2018.

As well as Music, I tutor English Literature and Religious Studies (philosophy, theology and ethics), up to and including GCSE. Having done both to A level myself, I am more than happy to assist students with various aspects of essay-writing, including the formation of critical arguments.
