A qualified teacher, I have been working with children for over eight years and have taught the piano and academic subjects both privately and within schools. I achieved a distinction in grade 8 piano and was awarded a music scholarship to the University of St. Andrews where I enjoyed playing for university functions, concerts and private events. Since graduating, I have gained experience teaching the piano to children, right from the young beginner to those taking ABRSM, GCSE and A-level examinations. Since graduating from the University of St. Andrews in 2006, I completed a PGCE in Secondary Geography and have gained experience working as a teacher, classroom assistant and academic tutor both at top independent schools and privately with Keystone Tutors in London and independently. Throughout this time, I have gathered knowledge of the national curriculum whilst preparing students for school, entrance, scholarship, GCSE and A-level examinations. I work to ensure my pupils are better prepared academically and I coordinate my tutoring to align with pupils’ schoolteachers.
