Personal Description:
I am a multi-instrumentalist originally from the Scottish Borders, playing flute, whistles and clarinet.
I specialise in folk and traditional music, mainly playing Scottish, Irish, Manx, Northumbrian and Breton. I studied at Newcastle University on the Folk and Traditional Music degree and gained a 2.1 overall grade with a 1st in performance in 2013. As well as working for Live Music Now, teaching privately and teaching at the Sage Gateshead I perform in a few different bands.

Projects and Employment

Performer and workshop leader for Live Music Now
As a music leader on the Live Music Now scheme, I have extensive experience of performing and delivering workshops to those who may not have regular access to live music. Audiences include children with special educational needs, adults with learning disabilities, children in hospitals and elderly people living in sheltered accommodation. Due to the diverse range of audiences and performance settings my partner and I have to be very flexible and always ready to tailor our performance accordingly.

The Sage Gateshead, Adult learning, Ensemble leader for two
bands within the Folkworks Tuesday program.
I write, arrange and teach music to the Beginner and Intermediate Bands at Folkworks Tuesdays.These sessions are taught using a combination of learning by ear and reading notation.

Private Music Teacher.
I give one to one lessons to adults and children of any ability and consequently my teaching style is very flexible.

Performer and recording artist in various bands.

Freya Rae & Louis Bingham
A quote from our website:
Freya Rae & Louis Bingham's music is varied, colourful and enthralling. They are a young duo who play a mixture of traditional tunes and modern compositions, drawing particularly on strong influences from Ireland and Brittany. On stage their unique and engaging performance dynamic communicates to audiences their love and sensitivity for the tradition, whilst presenting their own innovative compositions with virtuosity
and creative flair. Multi-instrumentalists, Freya's whistles, flute and clarinet blend seamlessly with Louis' guitars, cittern and bouzouki. They have recently released their debut album Curlicue, a recording which has garnered significant critical acclaim.
"Beautifully arranged and played with an entirely convincing sensibility... this is exquisite musicianship' The Living Tradition

Birlinn Jiarg
Birlinn Jiarg was brought together by multi-instrumentalist Beccy Hurst to perform the traditional Manx music she grew up with as well as her own compositions. Having performed with various Manx bands and dance teams over the years, Beccy moved to England to study on the Folk Degree at Newcastle University.
At the centre of Birlinn Jiarg's sound is the combination of Beccy's whistle and concertina playing and the clarinet and flute of Freya Rae (Freya Rae and Louis Bingham, Tom Kitching Band). The unusual combination of low whistle and clarinet was what originally inspired the band's formation and sets Birlinn Jiarg's sound apart from more traditional line-ups. Having performed in a duo with Beccy for a few years, Scottish guitarist and bouzouki player Alasdair Paul ( Pons Aelius , Kimber/Paul) was a natural choice for Birlinn Jiarg. Completing the quartet's line-up is bodhránist Callum Younger (Pons Aelius, Trio FCT). Callum and Alasdair have
worked together on a variety of projects and their inventive and powerful accompaniment provides a great platform for Beccy's and Freya's melodic interplay.

Tom Kitching Band
I play flute and clarinet in Tom's band. We have completed two tours around England and are planning more in 2016.

Simo Lagnawi (The Gnawa Berber)

Personal Description:
I'm a professional actor/voice over artist with a BA in Journalism and MA in Acting.
I was born in Russia and have lived and trained in London for over 10 years.

Acting: I have trained to be a professional actress at a nationally accredited drama school Drama Studio London and have worked as an actor and voice over artist since graduating in 2011.

Russian Language: I am bilingual: native Russian speaker with native level of English

Teaching Experience:

I'm just starting out as a tutor.
Acting: I have trained a few students how to present better (in a corporate environment), and have constantly felt I could teach really well. I'm a good actor with clear understanding what demands drama schools have, which drama schools focus on what. I'd be an excellent tutor for aspiring actors.
Language: I've given a range of private English lessons to foreign speakers, and thought I might as well teach Russian too. I have a BA (NARIC approved, local MA) in Journalism from The State St.-Petersburg University, one of the best universities in the country. I have worked as a radio presenter and print journalist for a range of Russian media, including Marie Claire, Elle, Empire, Rolling Stone.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm very attentive and involved with my students.
Acting: This is very sensitive type of art. There is a lot of psychology involved in performing. I will not only help with preparing a speech for drama school auditions (speech clarity, projection, tension release, delivery) but also share a few tips on how to develop your acting skills.
Russian Language: I will be able to help only students who have already had certain level of Russian language training. I will help to understand how the language works, what Russian mentality is like, work on pronunciation, sentence structure, etc. I can not, I'm afraid, help beginners.

Personal Description:
I am a calm and collected person and this is reflected in my approach towards tutoring. I aim to build rapport and tailor my service to the specific needs of the tutee. I primarily focus on breaking down the curriculum and assessing through mock scenarios and written assessments built upon topics studied as well as experiences the tutee has had.

As the needs of each student are different, i structure my tutoring in a way which provides realistic expectations of both exam and coursework environments and where possible, i supplement this with the use of past examination material to truly replicate the educational environment the tutee is likely to be in.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience has largely been developed by assisting students in the years below me as well as my younger siblings and my cousins with their education. I have developed this further in a professional setting where i have trained colleagues on new and unfamiliar processes. My strengths lie in breaking down complex information and making it readily accessible to tutees.

Tutoring Approach:

I begin by engaging the tutee/parent/both in conversation to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the tutee, once this has been established, i draw up a comprehensive plan of action to address those needs and where possible, further enhance their existing skillsets. I am to review material with the tutee on a regular basis and ensure they have absorbed the information and more importantly, that they are able to apply it.

Where the tutee requires support via other means such as audio/visual representations of the material - i will endeavour to match this in a suitable manner.

Personal Description:
Hello, I am a person that gets along with everyone and am quite easy going. I am friendly and bubbly and I like to make teaching fun and interesting for everyone.
I have a BSc in Marine Biology and a Masters' degree also in Marine Biology.
I love teaching and helping people who need some extra input or guidance with their studies, this is something I do naturally.
I currently work as a Science support assistant at Dartmouth Academy and help students all through secondary from year 7 to 11.
My previous profession was Marine Biology, I studied in Portugal, Spain and Wales. I lived in Portugal for 10 years and speak, read and write Portuguese fluently. I am also half Spanish and lived in the Canary islands for 6 months.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience is quite varied. I first started tutoring as a Secondary (yrs10,11 and 12) English tutor in Portugal. My first job after completing my BSc degree was to be the principal marine biologist at a whaling museum where I gave lectures to children (ages 6 to 16) about the ocean and marine wildlife. I then decided to take my Masters' degree and moved to Wales. After that, I decided to become a teacher and get teaching experience in a school. I have been working at Dartmouth Academy from September 2016 to present and I support students and help the science teachers with lesson planning and small recap exercises. Additionally, I have substituted some science lessons and am now working towards becoming a Science teacher.
So far, I am enjoying the experience very much and am also getting very positive feedback from all my students. I have been told that I am nice and that I explain things very well.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to be a support to the tutee. I am quite flexible and can arrange to meet with you where most convenient, being your house or a library or other public space.
I work together with the tutee and create a tutoring plan. I will sit down with you in our first session and make a 3 to 4 session plan to got though the subject chosen for tutoring. We will decided which sections of your work you are most and least confident with and work through them in a logical order. I will ask you to bring all your learning materials and will look through what you have already covered and what you still need to cover. I will then ask you which areas you would mostly like to address and start from then.
After covering the work I will give you some past paper questions to do and we can then see how you get on and what else may need to be worked on.
Your tutor sessions with me are for your benefit and so I will listen to you requests and needs and work with you to achieve the highest level of learning to your abilities initially and then push you a little to see how well you can perform.

Personal Description:
Semi-retired, experienced teacher who enjoys developing students as independent thinkers. Passionate about supporting people in reaching their goals. Patient and supportive. Current Enhanced DBS Certificate.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 15 years experience teaching KS3 and KS4 Maths and Science in secondary schools; returning to teaching after working in industry where I extended my experience and skills in developing people to attain their personal and professional goals. Passionate about developing students to reach their maximum potential - I have experience in teaching, mentoring and supporting students across all abilities. Previous experience tutoring students in maths at both primary and secondary level.

Tutoring Approach:

Whether pre-GSCE and wanting to increase skills and confidence in maths, or working towards a GCSE and wanting to secure a higher grade - my approach is to understand the student as a learner to identify potential barriers to their understanding, and then building skills through practice to embed learning. I focus this within the context of what the student wants to achieve - the reason why they have sought-out help from a maths tutor.

Personal Description:
I have recently completed my BA in Classics and English at Oriel College Oxford, and hope to continue post graduate study in the future. Academically, my main interests are in the history of Ancient Greek, and the Germanic languages like Old English and Old Norse and in Medieval manuscripts. I have also particularly enjoyed studying epic poetry.
Outside of my academic interests, I like hiking, cycling, Zumba and cross stitching.
I am especially interested in widening access to higher education in Britain, and encouraging those from so-called non-traditional backgrounds to make applications to prestigious universities.

Teaching Experience:

• I have over 70 hours of teaching experience at KS1 and KS2 level as an Academic Support Volunteer with the charity IntoUniversity. I attend weekly after school sessions aimed at pupils aged 7-11, facilitating their work on personal homework or maths and literacy tasks. I work with small groups and one-to-one, with children of all abilities from a diverse range of backgrounds.
• I have around six hours experience teaching beginners level Ancient Greek to a class of teenage students at the East End Classics Summer School. I planned my own lessons and created my own teaching resources. In two previous years I also worked at the summer school as an academic mentor, running informal discussion sessions for the young people involved.

Tutoring Approach:

I am happy to devise my own programs of study to match a tutee's particular needs or to follow school syllabuses. I have personal experience of doing the Gothic and Tragedy papers for A Level English literature but am familiar with all the A Level texts through my work as an undergraduate. I let the student talk through their ideas out loud and when discussing literature challenge the student to think of new angles on a question and to argue against themselves. I also like to see a consolidation of what has been discussed more formally, either within or after the session if this is appropriate- a translation, mind map, essay plan or full written work. I would ideally begin a tutorial by asking some questions to establish progress on a particular topic, and from these questions establishing areas for focus. My sessions end with a consolidation of what has been covered and also a challenge to apply what has been covered in a new way, to ensure that the concept, not just its specific application has been understood.

In language learning I put a lot of store by memorising paradigms and vocabulary, and in literary study, I think having repeated immersion in the text studied is vital. This means targeted close reading of particular moments or chapters, and repeated rereading of the whole. An intimate knowledge of a text allows me to think on my feet and respond to questions on new and unexpected topics.
