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.

Guy is very thorough and detailed and knew exactly the requirements of the examination board. The most important attribute that comes through is that he is extremely encouraging and puts my Daughter at ease (she is normally very shy and quite with new people).
Being based in Singapore added another complication and Guy was willing to accommodate having lessons at a time that suited both of us.
If you are looking for a tutor that can guide your child through encouragement and hence bringing out the best in them, then he’s your man.
