« My son has been learning piano with Claire since September 2016. His progress with Claire has been wonderful to watch. He loves his lessons and looks forward to each week, practising daily without a reminder in order to reach his full potential. He respects her extensive musical knowledge and enjoys her calm and happy disposition when teaching. Her approach clearly gets results culminating in a distinction for his Grade 1 exam in June 2017. »

Claire - Teddington - Flute

Methodology

If you are looking for a teacher to support, encourage, motivate and inspire, please get in touch. I am passionate about opening up new worlds of knowledge for my students, and in so doing, instilling a love of learning and greater self-confidence.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach English Literature, primarily at A-level and Undergraduate level. I also teach GCSE English. As a qualified classical musician, I offer instrumental lessons in piano, flute, singing and music theory.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I am an English honours graduate (UCL) with qualified teacher status (PGCE/ QTS). I hold the Diploma in Music Performance (DIpABRSM) from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. I have Grade 8 (Distinction) in piano, flute & singing.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £40 per hour

- Where do you teach?

I teach at my house in Teddington (Richmond upon Thames).

- When are you available?

I am available to teach at various times during the week & on Saturday and Sunday. I offer daytime sessions, as well as after-school and evening slots. I am also available during school holidays, particularly July & August, when students can make major strides forward in their learning and enter the next academic year with more confidence and skill.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach GCSE and A-level students; undergraduates & those preparing for university study. Music-wise, I teach all ages, from young children to adults.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE English Literature
A-level English Literature (AS & A2)
Cambridge Pre-U
ABRSM & Trinity music examinations

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I tutor pupils via Skype, phone and email. I also offer essay marking & feedback for those preparing for examinations. The same rates apply per hour.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

The best route to inspiration and success is to find a teacher whose passion for their subject ignites your own; the right teacher can unlock skills that allow you to excel and fulfil your potential in any area of life. I would encourage you to invest in your learning and follow your dreams!

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I taught in independent schools for 9 years, as a teacher of both English and Music. I have had private students for 13 years, including those who are preparing for university entrance and who are currently undergraduates. I am an examiner for A-level English Literature.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I hold a recent DBS certificate.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I studied Music at the Royal College of Music in London. I read English at UCL (University College London), graduating in 2002; I completed my PGCE at Roehampton University in 2005, and achieved Qualified Teacher Status in 2006.

Nicolene, mother of piano student

My son has been learning piano with Claire since September 2016.
His progress with Claire has been wonderful to watch. He loves his lessons and looks forward to each week, practising daily without a reminder in order to reach his full potential. He respects her extensive musical knowledge and enjoys her calm and happy disposition when teaching. Her approach clearly gets results culminating in a distinction for his Grade 1 exam in June 2017.

Claire has been an excellent person to have as a piano teacher over the past year. I have only taken up the instrument very recently, and was looking for a teacher who would be patient, encouraging and happy to deviate from a set beginner's course, should the inspiration arise. Luckily, Claire is all of these things. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone considering lessons.

Claire has worked wonders with our two boys over the last 18 months or so (now 14 & 16). I don't know how she does it but they both look forward to her lessons and from being fairly poor readers, they have both improved their reading skills dramatically. There was time we were worried about how they would fare at GCSE English but not now! Thank you, Claire.

S
Shalini, mother of two piano students

Claire has been teaching my two daughters the piano for a few years. She is a wonderful teacher. She is firm but kind, and very professional. She understands my girls' different characters and has helped them progress at a pace that suits them. She gives great feedback too which is very helpful.

M

I have had the pleasure to know Claire for the last 14 months since she started tutoring my son Ollie, for his English IGSCEs this year. Claire's tutoring and mentoring skills are unique and in our opinion, outstanding. She has inspired my son to take an interest in the creative and analytical skills of English study. She has helped research courses and devise strategies to further stimulate Ollie's interest in poetry and find interesting reading material to broaden his thinking.

C
Charlotte

Claire is an absolutely fantastic teacher. She has taught my daughter for four years and I would not hesitate to recommend her. She has taught her both the flute and classical voice, and my daughter has progressed through 7 separate grades, achieving Merits and Distinctions in all her examinations, which is a testament to Claire's tuition skills. Claire is reliable, supportive and provides excellent feedback.

R
Richard

I have been having flute lessons with Claire for 20 months. She has patiently guided me to Grade 4 standard during this time. She is always positive and encouraging, and tactfully points out how to improve my technique, leading to consistent, incremental improvement. The format of lessons is flexible; Claire will always try to accommodate students' requests to study music that inspires them.
