Methodology

Aim for your personal best and reach your true potential. 'Go beyond your expectations...' Improve your grades and skills significantly by working alongside a private tutor who can assist you with your specific needs and goals

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Classical/ Jazz/ Pop Piano (up to Grade 8), Theory (up to Grade 8) , and Violin (up to Grade 4).
I also teach English As a Foreign Language. I prepare students for IELTS exams.
Although I teach I wide range of subjects I have expert knowledge in these areas. I only teach in Peterborough.

I also offer online tuition (anywhere in the world). This is particularly useful for A-level music, Theory or Music Degree preparation. I can help with everything from writing a composition to essays to musical analysis. I teach music from my dedicated music room which has a Yamaha baby grand piano.

- How much do you charge?

My rates are between £18/ hr and £32/ hr depending on the subject. A small fee may be made for travel. If you want to study with a friend or sibling the rate will be halved as I just charge for the time. Children can have 30min or 45 min music lessons also depending on their age and level.

I teach in Peterborough. I rarely teach in pupils homes.

- When are you available?

I am available 7 days a week and also during the school holidays.

Very enjoyable piano lessons. Excellent teacher and talented musician with a friendly approach to lessons. Everything was explained and shown to me clearly. I can now play pieces that I could not have imagined playing before.

I enjoyed my English lessons with Natasha. She made the lessons interesting and I learnt something useful each lesson. Now I feel more confident and I have a better grasp of English grammar. Lessons involved a range of activities so that made them more enjoyable.
