I am an enthusiastic tutor with a calm teaching manner and I enjoy tailoring my teaching approach to each individual. I am familiar with presenting pupils for ABRSM exams and preparing them for performances.
I achieved excellent SQA results in a variety of subjects and have built on this success through the completion of a BMus degree. In addition to practical skills, this degree involved a lot of academic writing and spoken assessments which have refined my communication skills.
I have worked as an instrumental tutor for a number of years, tutoring both children and adults from a variety of backgrounds. I take an integrated approach to lessons in order to enhance the pupil's all-round understanding of music.
With regard to languages I have experience of teaching English as a foreign language and am widely read. I possess a thorough knowledge of grammar and have worked as a columnist in OnCourse Magazine.
Rebekah was a great tutor for my 6 year old son. So patient and good with him. He really enjoyed his lessons, thank you so much.
My daughter is really enjoying her lessons with Rachel and, after just three sessions, is doing very well with the introductory exercises. Rachel's gentle approach is just what is needed to get the best out of this particular six year old.
I have now had three lessons with Rebekah. She is punctual courteous and supportive. I plan to continue having lessons with her!
Rebekah is a calm, patient and encouraging tutor (and very tolerant of my daft questions). As an adult re-beginner I've appreciated her flexible approach.
Very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable tutor! Absolutely love learning piano!
