Commitment / Other Details
I am willing to start whenever there is an assignment to teach violin and will commit to as long as the student would like to.
Rapport Building
I believe when teaching children, there must be a good communication link between students and parents. Sometimes parents are hardly around so it becomes hard to establish rapport, so what I've been doing is to keep a notebook and write comments on their progress in it to keep parents updated on how their child is doing. Also, communication with students is very important. I like to build rapport in a way, i don't want them to see learning as a chore, but it has to be fun. This can only happen when the teacher is also their friend.
Keeping Up with Curriculum
Besides teaching music, I am also learning and playing with string ensembles. I keep myself updated with the ABRSM curriculum by subscribing to their newsletters and their syllabus.
As a Good Tutor
Mutual respect between student and teacher. And patience.
