Information About Guy - Bloomsbury tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Guy:
I have a first class degree in Music from the University of Leeds, a Masters in Management from the University of Cambridge and a PGCE from Canterbury Christ Church University. I am also an active musician, who regularly gigs as a drummer and percussionist in semi-professional ensembles around London. I am dedicated to the pursuit of increasing the standards of music education across London through my roles as a Head of Music, in teacher teaching and as a school governor.
I have been Head of Music at a leading boys state school in North London for over 3 years and have expertise in teaching AQA GCSE Music and Edexcel Music and Music Technology A Level. I have excellent results in GCSE (100% A*- C 2017 and 55% A*-A) teaching students with a wide variety of starting points. I also have excellent results with A level, achieving 100% A*-C in 2017 with 100% achieving or exceeding their target grades. I am currently also working part time with a leading London Music Hub to develop the quality of teaching across primary and secondary schools. I have worked for Canterbury Christ Church University as a PGCE Music subject tutor and delivered teacher training for all GCSE exam boards on behalf of the Prince's Teaching Institute. I am also a contributor of resources to the music technology website Music Tech Guru and have privately tutored students for Grade 5 Theory ABRSM and A Level, both with a 100% pass rate.
As a qualified teacher who has taught and observed in many London schools I am able to taylor my approach to the students I teach. I believe first and foremost in building a positive teacher student relationship and drawing upon my wide variety of resources and techniques to assess a student's needs before moving onto building subject knowledge, confidence and exam technique. I am able to travel to tutees houses and also offer online tutoring via skype.
