Information About Amber - Watford teacher - (1 review)
This is how 2 referees rated Amber:
I am a qualified artist and arts manager and am currently studying to become a qualified teacher as well. I am experienced in drawing, painting and printmaking and can teach pencil, charcoal, chalk, watercolour, printmaking, oil and acrylic paint.
My own work has an organic, abstract quality to it and has been shown in galleries in Australia. When I am not teaching or coordinating arts education programmes for galleries I spend time updating my creative skills and working on my own artworks.
I have 8 years teaching experience with children aged 4-18 years with varying needs and abilities. I have taught for schools, art centres, community centres, festivals and fairs, art clubs and courses. I am currently teaching at 4 schools in Hertfordshire as well as privately to several students per week including GCSE and A Level students.
Feedback from customers:
"Thank you so much for helping my daughter get her portfolio ready, she couldn't have done it without your guidance and its been a pleasure having you in our home. Thank you!" - Terry Noals, mum of Tara (16 years)
"I never knew there was so much to learn about art! My 2 children loving having their very own art tutor, its developed their ability and they can now do artwork with confidence" - Maya Havers, mum of Nicola & Jake (10 & 12 years)
"Amber was recommended to me to help my son put a portfolio together in order to apply for graphic design BA courses. The catch was, there were only two weeks to do so. Amber introduced him to new techniques and media with which he was able to create great pieces of work, she advised him on the structure and the visual layout of his portfolio and how to make it look fit for university interviews. She was amazingly accommodating and flexible at all times. With her work, she not only inspired my son but the rest of us as well - She is an amazing artist indeed! most importantly, my son got offered and accepted a place in Falmouth Universtity (his first choice). He continues to explore the techniques Amber taught him and has got confidence to venture further afield with his art. I hope to have some tutoring from Amber for myself and my daughter in the future too. A truly inspirational, calm and relaxing art adventure. Thank you Amber! We were very lucky to find you." - Renata Ritchie, mum of Lucas (18 years)
As a teacher in training I have a very calm approach to teaching because the journey and the end result are as important as each other. I have creative problem solving skills and I am able to encourage and support students to push past their personal creative barriers. I always bring a smile and a sense of humour to classes because its important for students to feel comfortable around me.
To every private class I teach I bring an easel and board and a range of books and basic materials including pencils, pens, watercolours, charcoal and chalk. I spend a lot of time planning and preparing so that the student gets the best from the time spent with me.
