Experienced, qualified teacher (primary and secondary) specialising in Music but also Primary Core subjects

Methodology

My teaching method is to create individualised, fun but practical lessons that focus on the student's own learning ability. I embed the theory within the work whilst also making sure the student feels its okay to make mistakes -that's the way we all learn and make real progress, as well as build confidence.

Experience

I am a Music PGCE secondary level (ks3-4) qualified teacher who has also taught music in primary and Special Needs. Recently, I have also been teaching the core subjects in primary schools (maths, english etc) and i'm available for extra tuition. Gigged in many different types of bands across London.

Neil's CV

Curriculum Vitae
May. 2019

OBJECTIVE

I have recently been working in a long-term supply role teaching ks3 music in a mixed secondary school in Harrow. I started as their NQT (and since completed my first term) but due to financial reasons, the school’s preliminary offer of a permanent role had to change as they are no longer going to teach music from September. As such, I am looking for a permanent position in a school where I can continue my NQT year as well as further develop my skills and pedagogy. Previous to my time there, I have also had a number of different supply teaching roles, including teaching ks1-2 music as well as other subjects at primary schools. I have worked as a teaching assistant for 4 years prior to my PGCE course in an outstanding Special Needs School. Throughout my work experience and training, I have gained the ability to work responsibly and professionally in a busy and stimulating environment. I am an excellent communicator and timekeeper, have no problem meeting deadlines and I am a fast learner with excellent personal skills.
