Personal Message
I'm a young professional singer with a passion for teaching. I help my students to achieve measurable progress whilst having fun! I'm sensitive to the learning styles of individuals and create a scheme of work designed to meet their specific needs.

Tell me about your qualifications.
2011 - 2013 I completed a Masters in vocal performance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, preparing me for work in music education and as a freelance performer
2008 When teaching English as a foreign language in Bologna, Italy, I passed my CELTA teaching qualification with class B (top 10% of candidates)
2005 - 2008 I gained a 1st in my undergraduate degree at the University of Cambridge whilst training as a choral scholar at Selwyn College
What kind of experience do you have?
I started teaching English in 2008 whilst living in Italy, having gained my teaching qualification to teach EFL. I then resumed teaching in 2011 when I started a part-time Masters, this time in Maths, English (at primary school level) and singing. My teaching practise has grown so that in the summer months I lead intensive 11+ workshops working with small groups of children. Over the past three years I've continuously tutored students between the ages of 6 and 12 in Maths and English, singing pupils of all ages, and English as a foreign language at all levels.

£35 for an hour
£18 for half an hour
Where do you teach?
I teach from my studio in Uxbridge and also travel to student's homes to teach. I'm close to Harrow, Hillingdon, Southall, Ickenham, Ruislip, Watford and West Drayton and can travel to W, NW, SW and Central London.
When are you available?
Weekday evenings and Saturdays. More daytime availability in school holidays.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I am happy to teach all ages and levels in classical singing, and there is no upper age limit.
In Maths I teach children from the age of 6 through to 12 and in English this extends to the age of 16 at GCSE level.
In EFL/ESL I teach adults of all ages and young learners (aged between 10 and 17) from beginner to advanced levels.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
Singing - I can prepare students for any exam (ABRSM or Trinity/Guildhall)
Maths and English - 11+ and Common Entrance
English - GCSE
EFL - Cambridge First Certificate (FCE), IELTS, CPE, and other EFL exams.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes

University of Cambridge- Anita Morrison
Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and present teacher - Sophie Grimmer
Tell me about some of your current students.
Recent student successes include:
A student being selected for Townley Grammar School, after a course of 15 intensive lessons to prepare for the 11+.
A student gaining entry in year 7 to Blackheath High School for Girls, after a year's tuition to improve Maths and English confidence.
A year 5 student progressing from national curriculum level 3B to 4A in Numeracy within one term whilst having Maths tuition.
An English as a Second Language student gaining level 8 in the IELTS test and being accepted to UCL to study Engineering after a year and a half of EFL tuition.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I recognise a student's tutoring time as something outside of their academic or work commitments and therefore make my lessons enjoyable and informative by always taking a fun approach to learning. Take a look at my testimonials to get a flavour of how I teach. From my own musical and academic training I've gained the knowledge to help students to achieve their goals in a structured, positive way. If you have any questions feel free to call me to chat about your specific learning needs. I look forward to hearing from you!
