Fiona Berry
Trinity presenter


Fiona Berry and Peter Buckby, both from Trinity College will be presenting a seminar aimed at talking to teachers about Trinity exams and how to get the best results from them.

Fiona currently teaches privately and is both an examiner for Trinity College London and an adjudicator for the National Federation of Music Festivals. Her pupils are renowned for achieving high distinction marks from elementary level through to diploma level. She attributes this success not only to her passion and expertise for teaching but also to the relationship she develops with students, which builds both confidence and assurance. As a Trinity examiner, she has travelled the world and experienced learning in many different cultures. The use of modern technology has enabled her to continue teaching whilst abroad on examining tours and she is enjoying the new challenges that this approach brings.
