Having had a Grammar School Education and then studying music at degree level, I worked in the legal field and Local Government prior to becoming a music coach at Thamesmead School, Surrey where I taught for 7 yrs, progressing to Surrey Arts fro 10 years, and ACS International Egham, and more recently on a private basis.

I believe the need for online tutoring is a growing trend
as technology is enabling us to provide resources to
students in other countries at a high standard and low
cost which will enable many more to access educational
opportunities which have been largely unavailable until
I have 2 adopted children, one of whom is severely
disabled. I am also second mother to my two older
nephews who lost their father to clinical negligence in
2006. Having responsibilities that stretch beyond one’s
own family is very important to me and, as a result,
social action, justice and making a difference to
individuals and communities to enable them to have
better opportunities in life through having a better
education, is a vital part of my world view. Amongst my
future goals is to provide better educational
opportunities in 3rd world countries to make a difference
in the lives of the poor and disadvantaged and also to
provide opportunities for counselling for victims of
trauma and social injustice.As a Music and Financial
Educator I believe I can impact the lives of people in two
fundamental areas: Music and Financial
education.Music is vital in developing people in many
areas such as social and cognitive skills.Music therapy
is widely recognised as being vital for the development
of children with autism for example and it’s benefits in
developing right and left brain skills affects the student’s
learning abilities in other areas.The lack of Financial
Education has been a serious problem in the UK leading
to families suffering from debt and poverty and needs to
be addressed more widely
