Michelle - Tettenhall - Oboe

Methodology

I am fully qualified premium teacher of Special Needs/Music with a Masters/P.G.C.E. and run my own private special needs and music company 'Calm Seas' and I'm looking for new pupils. I believe in giving students the best possible education.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I have a wealth of experience in Special Needs teaching in the classroom and home tuition with children with Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties, in particular but have also worked with children with autism, hearing impairments and Downs syndrome.I have a very calm and relaxed approach and feel I can focus on specific pupil's needs.I can also teach music (instrumental and theory) through to A level and can also offer French from beginners through to G.C.S.E. level, English, Maths.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a Masters degree in Special Needs and I am also a qualified classroom teacher (P.G.C.E.) and have a music degree from Dartington College of Arts.

I am also trained in the following area: CALM Training Module 1 and 2 and have a current safeguarding certificate (24/5/15)

- How much do you charge?

I charge up to £40 p/hr plus travel ( If over 10 miles) but discounts are offered on block bookings (. 5 lessons = £35 p/hr plus travel, 10 lessons = £30 p/hr plus travel). I am also introducing a new offer whereby new students pay a reduced rate for their first 5 lessons ( £35 p/hr plus travel). My fees are fairly high but that is reflected in my qualifications and experience. Please read the testimonials on my website. Initial consultations can be set up to discuss student's needs before proceeding with lessons.

- Where do you teach?

I teach both at my own property and at client's properties up to a maximum distance of 40miles from Wolverhampton

- When are you available?

Contact me for best available times.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

From toddlers to adults and from beginners through to G.C.S.E. and diploma ( for instrumental lessons)

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Associated Board music exams from prep tests to diploma level, G.C.S.E. and A level.
G.C.S.E.and A level French
Help and support for special needs pupils in English Maths, Phonics etc

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I have a driving passion to educate pupils no matter what needs they have and try to make sure all my pupils can realise their full potential. I teach in a relaxed and calm manner, whilst also having fun and engage pupils fully. Everyone deserves an education and I feel it is my duty to provide that service.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching in Special Schools/Privately for the last 4 years across a wide range of subjects and been working mainly with autisitc, ADHD and EBD pupils. I also have 20 years experience as a peripatetic string teacher and 2 years as a head of music. My wide and varied career means I have many different teaching styles and approaches to get the best possible results from my students.

Yes it is current.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I trained at the University of Birmingham for my Masters in Special Needs and at the University of Central England for my P.G.C.E. Secondary Music. I also hold a Batchelor of Arts from Dartington College of Arts

Michelle has taught my son for 8 years and he has thoroughly enjoyed his lessons and now working towards Grade 7. Michelle is well-organised and reliable.

Andrea- Deputy Head

Michelle has taught my girls violin and piano for over 7 years. My eldest daughter has emotional needs and Michelle has been very sensitive and creative to meet her needs. The girls enjoy their lessons and enjoy playing.

Mrs Raiyat

Michelle teaches my son who has moderate learning difficulties and autism and has progressed so much through her lessons. He is more confident at school and his knowledge in various subjects and his speech is improving too. I would recommend Michelle as an excellent teacher and a very trustworthy person.

Thank you so much for all the years and hard work you've put into teaching me the violin. It has been a great experience and I've enjoyed every minute of it. Your lessons have helped me to develop my skill, confidence and wider musical knowledge. I will continue playing and I won't let the skills you've taught me go to waste. Thank you again and best wishes for the future!
