Master of Education - from this I have gained a deep understanding of how young people think and learn. It has given me a deep understanding of how to teach.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been working in schools since 1987 as a teacher, Assistant Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher and Headteacher. I retired early to enjoy my passion for high performance private tuition. I love to work with children and young people of all ages. I am able to help them in many different ways to improve their performance.

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

Yes

- Where and with whom did you train?

Plymouth University (Polytechnic)
University of Exeter.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL - AMIE)

European Piano Teachers' Association (EPTA)

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I have a wide range of students from Age 6 through to adult. It makes a real difference to start children at age 6/7 for 11+ preparation. At that age I can make a real difference to their learning. I have a number of students at Year 3/4. At that age I can really push them forward and help them to succeed, especially if they find school difficult. I have a number of students in Years 7/8/9. I help them to move themselves up in their class groups so that they are really well prepared for their GCSE courses. At GCSE level, I support the young people through their courses so that they succeed at each of their term exams. I also provide quick catch-up for a number of GCSE students. At A'Level, I usually just teach the modules in parallel with the students' school work so that they can benefit from an alternative approach to understanding their subject.

With my music students, I teach at any age to learn fast, take exams and to enjoy music making.

I teach a small number of all of these different kinds of student. That means that each lesson is always different, fresh and exciting for me. I love teaching and I love the variety and I love to produce high achievement and I love to support young people.
