Come and take guitar lessons with me online via Skype or Zoom (I am more than happy to use other platforms too!)
Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate guitarist, I offer coaching that will focus on your specific goals and will move at your particular pace. These lessons are for kids or adults, private or in groups.
I focus on all sorts of styles: Rock, punk, indie, pop, blues, etc
Please do contact me if you want more information!
A 30 minute session will:
Improve your confidence and skill of playing in general - Boost up your ability to play chords and scales - Help you master a particular song that you'd love to play - Develop your strumming so that it's more in time - Try out duets with me where you can practice your soloing or chord playing - If you'd like to try singing and playing at the same time, then we can also advance in that area.
Thomas is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!
Hi, my name's Tom. I'm 33 and I'm a qualified secondary school teacher in Religious Studies. (I've also regularly taught English and Geography to Year 7 students.)
I have 6 years teaching experience in secondary schools in East London.
I play guitar in a band. We write our own songs and perform them live. We did a European tour in Summer 2017 where we drove from the UK all the way to the East coast of Bulgaria. We stopped off at any major city we happened to be driving through, headed to a cool part of town and unpacked all our gear. A RAPID 20 mins setup time to then deliver some rock music to the locals on the street/town square! Since our return to London, we've been writing new songs: working on a series of EPs and also music videos to accompany them.
A resilient, ambitious, energetic individual looking to use the skills I’ve gained through 4 years full-time teaching and life experiences.
Through pursuing my band for the last couple of years, I’ve developed my ability to self-manage, and motivate.
My professional education and experience as an Assistant Head of Religious Studies have provided me with foundations of presenting, communicating and collaborating.

Passion for music: Performing live, creating songs and videos. I enjoy going out to restaurants and pubs with friends. At least once a week, my friends and I do cook-ups at each other’s flats in East London.
Perfect! My 12 year old son has just started learning the guitar. And Thomas has already managed to engage him - he’s really inventive and patient. So glad we found him!
Responded really well to my advice, very good listener; would definitely recommend.
I have known Tom since we taught together in a secondary school. Tom is patient and knows his stuff. He is an entertaining teacher too.
Tom is a great tutor, he loves music, and has experience performing and teaching. I would really recommend Tom as his experience as a tutor makes him professional but super friendly and kind, he is able to play different styles and can adapt to your level. Thanks Tom!
Awesome teacher! Fun & professional with lots of great experience. Can't recommended enough :)
Thomas has gained solid experience in both contemporary guitar and secondary school teaching. His calm relatable manner I believe will come across well on Superprof. Also his understanding of pacing, gained through teaching a mixed ability religious education class in London will help to heighten learning potential. He has also provided a high level on insight when analysing the various religions of the world.
Tom is a really friendly guy with ridic guitar skills. I've known him for years and watched him play and teach all around London. You'll learn fast and have a laugh
I've played in a band with Tom for the last 6 years. Tom is passionate and enthusiastic in all his pursuits and his patient and easy going demeanour makes him incredibly easy to work with.
Excellent tutor, very informative, patient, knowledgable and passionate. Great at adapting to different pupils and levels of knowledge. He has lots of experience with music. I would definitely recommend Thomas as a super Tutor.
Thomas has worked as a secondary school teacher, delivering lessons in subjects including Humanities and PHSE. He has experience of working with young people in order to help them make progress and learn new skills.
