Personal Description:

Hi there,

I'm Sallie, a 32 year old illustrator from Newport, Shropshire. Alongside illustrating books and creating personalised watercolour paintings, I am a private art tutor.

My tuition is great for children and teenagers who need extra assistance alongside their school art lessons, or even people who want to learn more skills and experiment with different techniques and materials!

After completing GCSE/A-Level/Foundation level art qualifications, I then began a degree in Illustration BA (Hons) at Loughborough University. Unfortunately, after a year of doing the course I had to leave due to health problems (I have a condition called Holt-Oram Syndrome) - I had to have two heart operations during my first year of university! I then graduated in 2013 with a 2:1 degree in English Literature. Since leaving university I have devoted my time to teaching, and being an illustrator.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working as an illustrator for the past seven years, and have been teaching for almost five years. I have ran my own private art workshops for both adults and children, and I now focus on one-to-one art lessons. I have also taught art and graphics lessons in a number of primary and secondary schools locally.

GCSE Art and Design (The Burton Borough School, 2006): A*
A Level Fine Art (Newport Girls` High School, 2008): A
Art and Design Foundation (Stafford Art College, 2009): Merit
Illustration BA (Hons) (Loughborough University, 2010): 2:1 (First Year)

Teaching Approach:

I like the student to dictate the specific subject matter of the lesson - and then I can take the lead and set lesson plans, with objectives in place for each lesson.

I believe I take a very professional approach, but at the same time I am laid back and relaxed as this helps my students to feel comfortable and at ease.

I can do either Virtual lessons or Studio lessons, here’s some information about both:

- take place on Zoom
- lessons are one hour
- lessons can be weekly or fortnightly
- Virtual works great for children needing a lot of step-by-step help. My camera is suspended above me so they have a really great view of what I’m doing at all times.
- I can send a material list for any art materials required
- lessons are £25

- I have art studios in Newport and Stafford
- lessons are one hour
- lessons can be weekly or fortnightly
- Studio is great for trying out different kinds of art materials (I have everything!) but not so good for seeing the ‘step-by-step’ process as I’m sat next to the student (rather than the student seeing the camera above my work)
- lessons are £30
