Richard

Sevenoaks Tutor

Private tuition from a fully qualified and DBS checked teacher with over 20 years experience. I have passed A levels in English and mathematics, piano teaching diploma, BA(Hons) in music and have completed a masters level course in mathematics teaching. I teach primary and secondary aged children who need extra help with reading, writing or maths and adults embarking on educational ventures. I also specialise in teaching more able mathematicians to GCSE level. Additionally I prepare pupils for the Kent Test (11 plus), Common Entrance Exam and independent school entrance exams, including The Sevenoaks School. Furthermore, I also teach piano, flute and music theory to adults and children, from beginners to advanced level.

Tuition/instrumental lessons take place in my classroom in Kemsing or at your home if you are in the Sevenoaks area. Please contact me for further information and to arrange a trial lesson if you are interested.

Tutoring Experience

I have been a qualified primary school teacher since 1993 and have also been a deputy headteacher. I am a qualified advanced skills teacher who advises and supports other teachers. I have many piano pupils ranging from beginners to advanced pianists, from 3/4 year olds up to adults.

Tutoring Approach

I provide tailor-made pupil focused tutoring, seeking to build confidence and enable academic potential. My lessons are very engaging and enjoyable. Academic progress is quickly noticed by classroom teachers, even if they are unaware of the private tutoring. Feedback from pupils and parents includes comments like: the lesson was really fun, I am looking forward to next week already, I really enjoyed the lesson. Tutees are often reluctant to end tuition, even when the initial goal has been reached!
