Personal Message
Thank you for visiting my Tutor Pages homepage! As I'm now studying in Holland I have sadly said goodbye to my London students, and am not taking enquiries here at present, but I will keep my page open for when I return.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach the violin, English language and literature, and academic music and music theory.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I have an MMus with distinction from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, and an MA (Cantab) in English from Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge (Class 2.1). I have three A grades at A-level (English, Music and French) and an A at AS-level (Fine Art). (I left school before the A* grade was introduced at this level!). I have eight A*s at GCSE, including one of the top five marks in the UK for English Literature.
What kind of experience do you have?
I am a successful tutor of violin, music theory and English for a variety of ages and stages. Alongside one-to-one tuition, I have worked with groups, chairing sixth-form seminars in English Literature and performance classes in schools, as well as online seminars for the literary website Peripeteia. Alongside my private teaching I have tutored for Bruton Lloyd. Having spent a year as a Graduate Music Assistant at Wells Cathedral School, a specialist music school, I have wide experience of working with young people, supervising practice, taking rehearsals, and assisting with high-calibre instrumental teaching, alongside teaching the violin one-to-one. At Wells I taught aural skills in preparation for ABRSM exam aural tests, and taught music theory both individually and in a class setting.

As a busy professional musician alongside my teaching, I perform with ensembles such as Joglaresa, Orchestra of St Paul's, International Baroque Players, and Charivari Agreable Simfonie, as well as my own Keats Quartet. You can find some videos of my work under 'My Files'.

All this personal experience informs my love of the subjects I teach, but is less important than what my pupils experience when engaging with a subject. You as an individual are at the centre of my tutoring.
How much do you charge?
I charge £30 per hour for my teaching, with £20 for half-hour lessons (which sometimes works best for young children's violin lessons). Depending on the distance I need to travel I may need to factor in travel expenses.
Where do you teach?
I travel to my students' homes. I am currently based in The Hague, so I am not taking regular pupils in London at present.
When are you available?
Tuition times are flexible; we can discuss together the best time for you. I am available term-time and school holidays.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach the violin to all ages and stages, from total beginners to advanced players. My class in London ranged between ages 6 to 50. I teach English at all ages to undergraduate level (recently coaching students for 11+, GCSE, and A2 examinations) and music up to sixth-form level. Every pupil and situation is unique, and I tailor my approach entirely to the individual, so do get in touch to discuss the ways in which I can assist you in your own learning goals.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I prepare violin students for grade exams, when that is right for them; performing exams are useful in providing a goal to work towards but should not become the primary motivation for learning. I prepare students for ABRSM music theory examinations. In English, I assist students in preparation for qualifications up to university level, including 11+, GCSE and sixth-form level examinations such as A-level. In Music, I teach up to sixth-form level. In my academic tutoring, I am very conscious that a family will often decide to tutor with a specific exam in mind. I take this investment by the family extremely seriously, and will start by producing, in consultation with you, an individual plan of action based on the syllabus and the student's strengths and areas for development. My aim is to provide targeted exam-focused work whilst fully utilising the potential for private tutoring to explore a subject further than narrow school-based teaching often can. I want to develop the student's experience and understanding as an individual in a way that is valuable and meaningful for them beyond the immediate pressures of examinations.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have an enhanced CRB certificate, dated September 2010.
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I do teach by telephone, Skype, and email, when distance makes face-to-face lessons difficult. We can discuss your individual needs together.
Where and with whom did you train?
At Trinity Laban, I studied the modern violin with the renowned violin professor Diana Cummings. I now study the baroque violin with Walter Reiter, principal with The English Concert. I previously studied with Mark Knight and Patricia Noall. All this means that I have been rigorously taught, and have inherited the teaching of some of the great violin pedagogues including Galamian and Flesch, which I am now passing on myself. I use this to ensure that my pupils learn to play with ease and freedom from day one, without the tension problems that, sadly, one often sees in violin students. My supervisors at Cambridge included Professor Helen Cooper, N.K. Sugimura, Dr Jason Scott-Warren and Jeremy Prynne.
Do you have a personal message for students?
Yes! You are a totally unique and special person, and my job is simply to bring that out and help you discover what's in you, whether it's through musical or literary studies. Your own imagination, ideas, emotions, and capacity for independent thought are vital. It's fun and exciting! Believe in yourself, work hard, and enjoy yourself. Good luck!
