My specialist subject is Art for which I have a passion and believe it is important to maintain good subject knowledge. After graduating with a 2/1 Honours Degree in Fine Art (2,000), I worked as a Freelance Illustrator before concentrating on individual projects resulting in solo exhibitions at venues such as The Malvern Theatres, Liverpool Academy of Arts and Cambridge Art Fair. I entered education six years ago as I enjoy the experience and challenges involved in helping people to develop their creative skills and knowledge.
I have gained valuable experience teaching Art to vulnerable adults with special education needs, such experience has served to develop my knowledge of differentiation and individual learning. I have experience teaching English Functional Skills to learners with special education needs, and frequently utilise one subject area to support the other. At Sutton Community Academy I taught a variety of subjects including Painting, Drawing and Illustration ranging from Beginner to Advanced level.
I believe it is important to earn respect from students by offering the same respect in return; it is also necessary to deliver sessions in a positive light - by acknowledging students’ strengths, demonstrating good subject knowledge and offering practical demonstrations to help students achieve a result via a particular technique or process. I believe listening to students is important, particularly in relation to their aspirations, interests and concerns, such information is crucial for creating individual lesson plans that are realistic, achievable, interesting and enjoyable.
