Private Guitar Teaching?

Discussion in 'Private tutors' started by SD_Lickiss, May 9, 2011.

  1. Basically I work part-time at as a TA at an independent during my university holidays but I'm working there full time there from May till the end of term, and possible through the next academic year if I don't get the job I actually want, also as a TA/unqualified science teacher.

    I recently performed at a local music festival unrelated to the school whereby one of the parents who recognised me there asked if I would be interested in teaching his son guitar. I've been playing for a while and I'm quite good (got ma grade 8's) but I've never taught before and I made this clear to the parent in question during our discussion but he seemed unconcerned. I don't know the boy that well but the father seemed a nice enough man. I was just wondering whether this is something that is normal? Do teachers/TA's do extra work doing private tuition for their students (not just in music but anything) and is it something that is discouraged?

    If I'm honest I could use the extra cash and I'm sure it wouldn't be too difficult to at least take him up a few grades before he needs someone who actually knows what they're talking about with guitar lessons.

    I just wanted to check what other people's thoughts were?
