Genevieve attended Mary Erskine School for Girl’s in Edinburgh, studying humanities and languages, before going on to read Music at the University of Oxford where she achieved a First Class degree, specialising in composition and the anthropology of music. Following this she went on to study for a Masters in Creative Practice at Goldsmiths, University of London, achieving a Distinction. Studying music to an advanced level includes studying history, cultural theory, anthropology and writing and research skills, as well as creative skills.
She has been tutoring for over ten years in a range of roles; as a part of homeschooling programmes and for periods of intensive exam preparation helping students gain entry to a number of schools including Westminster, St Paul’s and King’s College. She has also worked successfully with students applying to Oxbridge for music, and with students applying to the BRIT school.
Most recently Genevieve has been performing in a production at Shakespeare’s Globe. Genevieve balances her work in the creative sector with educational work and tutoring. She enjoys working as part of homeschooling teams, developing students’ creativity and critical thinking skills, and often uses visits to any number of the vast cultural institutions available in London to complement a programme of learning.
