Greetings! I am a professional guitar tutor based in Cheshire. Sessions Available.

Methodology

I believe that teaching is not just a simple procedure of conveying knowledge and expecting students to learn the various aspects of a subject. As a teacher I must be, first and foremost, inspiring and influential to my students, in order for them to have a desire to research my chosen subject further, outside of class, and not just in order to please their parents or myself.

Music as art and science has always been a subject that people understand better when they listen to it and have a chance to become emotionally involved with it, rather than when an individual tries to explain dots on paper, or gives a lecture about it.

In my experience, every person responds differently to learning and some are less interested in learning how to play the guitar than others at first. I address this by tailoring lessons to suit individual student needs. It is extremely important to me that each individual receives equal opportunity to promote their own work. A fair and firm approach, that promotes respect and appreciation between the teacher and the pupils, is essential.

In an endless array of data and information that the young people of today are surrounded with, it is crucial that a teacher identifies legitimate resources which eliminate confusion rather than add to it. I believe it is a teacher's responsibility to prevent their students from having to deal with an overwhelming amount of information.

Experience

I have a wealth of experience in teaching every age group and every level of capability. Working closely with schools, specifically children of a secondary age, I have a great understanding of the learning requirements of students of this level. I find it easy to build a good rapport with my students, which encourages good communication from both sides. I am currently responsible for teaching a large number of students across Cheshire East, many of whom complete various grades of Guitar Exams (Rockschool, Trinity, ABRSM) with a 100% high level pass rate, as well as a student who recently received the Sandbach Concert Series Award.

CURRICULUM VITAE

I have been playing the guitar from a very young age, and having become extremely competent with this instrument, I moved to the United Kingdom in 2006 in order to study Music & Sonic Arts at MMU. My aim was to further develop my musical skills, and to enhance my ability in using my chosen instrument for composition. Throughout my degree I became interested in teaching guitar, and this has been my aim since the completion of my course. During my degree I greatly expanded my knowledge of music, gaining experience in performance, music history as well as music from around the world. Through presentation of seminars I also enhanced my organisational capabilities, whilst improving my command of the English language, and my ability to communicate clearly with others. My desire is to continue to develop within an educational career, inspiring children to learn a musical instrument in line with the national curriculum.


KEY SKILLS

- Excellent customer service and communication skills
- IELTS grade 6.5 (Internationally recognised English Language Testing System)
- Experience as a trainer, with some experience in team management
- Computer literate in Microsoft and other computer programs
- Skilled touch-typist


EMPLOYMENT HISTORY

September 2014 - Present (Part time, Self-employed)
Sandbach Music, Guitar Tutor
In the summer of 2014 I was offered the opportunity to join a collaborative team of Music teachers in order to build new and successful business teaching music within Sandbach. I teach guitar three evenings a week to students of varying ages and capabilities, in groups and one on one. Due to the range of students I teach, I have gained experience in catering to different teaching requirements and learning capabilities. I am relied upon to plan my own lessons, and ensure the progression of each individual student whether they are taught in a group or one to one. Key aspects of my role involve the ability to control and keep the attention of a group, inspire a desire to learn, communicate with both students and parents where applicable and set tasks for development between lessons. During my employment with Sandbach Music, I have greatly developed as a teacher due to gaining experience in understanding the needs of my students and clearly communicating my intentions for each lesson. I find that my approachable nature and calm teaching style, as well as my ability to balance fun with learning makes me a liked and recommended teacher. Collaborating with other teachers has also developed my teaching skills and broadened my knowledge base in terms of teaching music. I coach all of my students through graded exams, with boards such as Rock School and Trinity, with 100% pass rate.

September 2014 - Present ( Part time, Self-employed)
Alsager School

My employment at Alsager School covers three days a week teaching guitar to students of
varying capabilities, as well as helping them prepare for GCSE exams in music. I work closely with the
music department in order to help students develop their musical abilities such as composition, performance, improvisation as well as helping them progress towards higher grades.


September 2014 – July 2019 (Part time , Self - employed )
The Love Music Trust

During my employment with The Love Music Trust, I have been appointed to various schools in Cheshire east to teach guitar to students of varying age and capability during school hours. With
some of them having individual lessons whilst others are paired in groups which has further developed
my ability to tailor my lessons structure based on the students needs. Producing reports throughout
the year using online platforms such as "Stepwize" has allowed me to communicate closely with parents, regarding their children's progress during the year.


June 2011 - Present (Part time, self-employed)
Guitar Tutor, Crewe

To supplement my income, and to use my experience within the music industry, I take on guitar students on a part time basis. I have had students of all ages, and teach all levels, from beginners to advanced throughout regular lessons. This has allowed me the opportunity to utilise my degree, and to share my advanced knowledge with others. It has also enhanced my communication skills towards all ages.
