Personal Description:

I am freelance Artist & Educator with a wealth of transferable skills to bring to your tutoring. I am passionate about all things related to art, craft and design and have spent a considerable amount of time developing my skills not only as an artist but as an educator too.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified teacher and taught for over five years, teaching in two vastly different school settings. I taught from 9-19 years, including examination qualifications such as GCSEs, BTECs (First and National levels) and AS/A2 levels. In addition, I have experience of post-16 tutoring and lecturing.

Throughout my career I have been continually observed for Ofsted inspections, developmental reviews, when working with trainee teachers and when introducing new courses to the department. I am proud to have consistently achieved ‘outstanding’ levels in all of my observations since my NQT year and good and above whilst a trainee. My most recent feedback stated that ‘… the teaching and learning observed in this lesson was excellent and was supported by the calm and supportive environment created through strong classroom management… ’

In addition, in my role as a ‘Teaching and Learning Group’ member, I was part of a team who actively demonstrated exemplary practice whilst seeking out new methods, styles and initiatives.

Since setting up my own business I have taught an even wider age range from 4 -80 years old and have enjoyed teaching everyone! I work from home for some of the week with students who have opted for private tuition. These students have wide ranging interests from learning basic drawing skills, to creating anime characters and learning how to draw fabric for fashion illustration. The rest of my time is divided up between different Arts Education projects that I deliver around West Yorkshire and some teaching at Leeds College of Art.

Teaching Approach:

Integral to my teaching and learning practice is the desire to foster an enjoyment of learning and a true appreciation of Art & Design in my students. With these two motivational starting points, the teaching and learning of Art & Design becomes a rewarding experience.

I am a firm believer in leading by example and as such, often work alongside students through projects and constantly keep my own sketchpads which are readily available for students to study.

I provide dedicated resource boxes that create a positive learning atmosphere and foster independent study habits. In this way I can teach students to be better learners as well as more competent artists. The eventual aim of course is self sufficiency, where the student is able to work unaided and therefore no longer requires a tutor.
