Personal Description:

Originally from North-west London, I am currently the Graduate Senior Organ Scholar at Trinity Hall, Cambridge, having recently graduated from there with a First-Class Degree in Music. Before arriving at Cambridge, I was fortunate enough to gain a Music Scholarship and full Bursary to Harrow School. Aside from my academic and musical interests, the other love of my life is playing and watching sport, mostly cricket and rugby. This year I was appointed the Trinity Hall Squash Captain and last year (oddly enough!) was appointed the Trinity Hall Pool Club Captain. The constant balancing of musical and sporting commitments with my academic work has been a theme running throughout my childhood and it has (hopefully!) helped me become the person that I am.

Tutoring Experience:

Much of my teaching experience has come in the form of instrumental music tuition, mostly on the piano, organ, or occasionally giving singing lessons. Conducting the Trinity Hall Chapel Choir has given me the experience also of working with larger groups of people as well as individuals. At school, and to some extent at university as well, I had the habit of being the 'go-to' person for my peers if they needed help in a number of areas of the curriculum. I found helping my peers in this way to be valuable in confirming my desire to give tuition more definitively.

Tutoring Approach:

For a number of reasons, the one-on-one supervision system at Cambridge has greatly informed my approach to tuition. Firstly, every session is tailored to the circumstantial needs of the student, something in which I believe strongly, and something that is often impossible to achieve in day-to-day school life. It is for this reason that I would seek to ascertain in as much detail as possible the particular needs of the tutee: the current syllabus, their strengths and weaknesses as well as the aspects of the curriculum that they enjoy or do not enjoy. Secondly, I am a great believer in striking up a good rapport with the student: good rapport in sessions means enjoyment, and in turn enjoyment will produce a willingness to learn. Finally, though it is a much-hashed cliché, it rings completely true: this system enables tutors to learn from tutees. I believe that good tutors can learn a great deal from their tutees so that they can inform their own teaching and further improve their pupils. Above all, the process of learning should be something enjoyable (often not the case), and my aim is to provide a dedicated, focused, rewarding and enjoyable learning environment.
