Fiona was very helpful and patient for someone completely new to the piano. She was very conscientious of the time and used the entire hour very efficiently. She made helpful suggestions and illustrations. I would highly recommend her!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
