More about Tim's teaching
Tim teaches people of all ages and has helped to prepare numerous students for Grade 1 exams, Fellowship diplomas, and everything in between; he is equally happy teaching people who don’t want to go anywhere near an examiner. Some of his students come every week; some come once or twice a year; most are somewhere in the middle. All of this is fine ― Tim aims for a flexible approach. In all his teaching, Tim aims to encourage self sufficiency and independent learning and his long-term goal with every student, strange as it may sound, is to make himself redundant.
