You can find 5-star reviews on First Tutors Direct, Tutorful, Bark.com, Yell.com and other similar websites.


Fees are currently £33 per hour (£16.50 per half hour for beginners / young children).  However, I offer a half-price rate for charities (e.g. the Roger Diamond Foundation; see Links).


"I've started giving face-to-face lessons again, with infection control measures in place.  This limits what we can do in a lesson and you may prefer lessons online (using Skype or Facetime).


I give a free trial lesson, so why not give it a go?"
