Personal Description:

I am a cheerful, relaxed and experienced teacher able to tutor students in primary subjects and in music. I am a fully qualified primary school teacher (PGCE) and I have many years experience helping students prepare for difficult exams from SATs to diplomas! Education is a family profession for me; both my parents were teachers and so is my wife! We have two children of our own aged 9 and 7.
When not working, I enjoy playing solo cornet for Sidmouth Town Band, kayak fishing, jogging, swimming, astronomy, chess and spending time with my own children. My goals for the future include completing a triathlon and catching a large seabass!

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught instrumental lessons for over 15 years and as a bandmaster in the Army, most of my time was spent teaching/coaching/mentoring musicians and training the band in military or musical skills.
I completed my teacher training with Devon Primary School Centered Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) which was a wonderful course where I taught all primary ages, specialising in year 2 and year 5. After this, I taught year 5 students in a state school. I have tutored both adults and children privately and I like being a private tutor because progress can be both rapid and enjoyable.

Tutoring Approach:

Many of my pupils comment that I make a real effort to make all of my lessons fun. I aim to make learning fun, rewarding and relevant to the real world. Having a personal tutor provides you with 1-to-1 attention so you can really focus on any mis-understandings and develop an individualised approach between the tutor and yourself that is much more useful.
