Information About Peter - Reading tutor - (11 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Peter:
Hello, my name is Peter, I'm a Geography graduate from Queen's University Belfast. Originally from Ireland, I moved to England three years ago. Currently living in Reading, I teach secondary geography.
I have been teaching and tutoring geography for the past 6 years in Northern Ireland and England. I have tutored students on a long-term basis and shorter term, crash course, basis. One of my major achievements was bringing a struggling GCSE student from a grade D to B within 6 weeks.
Every student will have a different approach to learning. It is therefore important that one set way of tutoring is outline and that the tutor works with the student in order for them to reach their full potential.

I can highly recommend Peter for both piano and cello:
- For my daughter (she had another cello teacher prior to Peter) he has put a lot of emphasis on getting the basis right: Bow hold, body position, focus on reading the music, etc. all things that would pay off later.
- He always makes it fun for her and is very patient.
- Plans the sessions well so she will do different things enabling her to focus for longer.
As for me I can only highly recommend that if you want to start playing again that you work with someone like Peter. I have made much faster progress just over a couple of months than what I thought was possible. He has really challenged me with choice of music. Even my extremely poor sight reading has improved.
And… after the Christmas break, we're planning on Grade II for March.
I found him very helpful and friendly. I would liked to continue with home, except that I had bought the details of another tutor first.
