Private Economics and Music Tutor in Thornton-cleveleys

I graduated with a First Class Degree in Music and achieved 3 A* in Economics, Business Studies, and Music. I also hold a 8.0 IELTS qualification.
I have been tutoring piano, music, economics and English as foreign language in the last 6 years.

I started my music education at the age of three and was admitted to the Vietnam National Academy of Music by the age of six. Developing a controlled, prodigious technique, I have been praised for authority over the most complex technically demanding pieces, the depth of musical insight and charismatic stage presence.
Receiving a full scholarship from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, I graduated with a First-class degree.
Recently, I was awarded Worthing Pianist of The Year. At Brighton Springboard Music Festival, I won the Senior Championship, as well as the senior concerto class. As a result, I will be performing as a soloist with Brighton Youth Orchestra and Worthing Philharmonic Orchestra in the next season.
My virtuosic recording of Beethoven's Bagatelle op.33 no.5 was played on BBC Radio 3. In Glasgow, producing the best performance of a Mozart Concerto, I was awarded Jock Holden Memorial Trophy.I won the Rosanne Archibald prize for the most promising musician at Blackburn Music Festival, and was a winner at Glasgow Rising Star competition last year.
I often performs locally, in the North West and Scotland. As a collaborative pianist, I am a member of the O'Breachain Trio, and our latest debut features the great Mendelssohn's Trio in D minor, Haydn's Gypsy trio and Bach Keyboard Concertos.

Tutoring Experience

I have learnt various methods of teaching for different age groups with differen background. Experiencing helping children with learning difficulties as well, I have gained more knowledge of music education for young children, especially those with learning difficulties.
Music: In the last 6 years, I have taught children of all age. Many out of my 21 pupils have achieved ABRSM grade exams 3-8 with Distinction.
Economics: My A level and BTEC Economics students who found the subject difficult at first have now all achieved high result in their exams. I focus on exam technique, how to deal with an essay, and how to categorise information cleverly so it is easier to learn.
English: I have been living in the UK for 7 years. I am fluent in English and hold a high IELTS qualification. I am familiar with the contents of IELTS too, especially for those who seeking to pass the exam for their visa requirement.

Tutoring Approach

I find myself a patient and problem-solving person. I love helping students learning by employing various methods that best suit their needs.
