Personal Description:

I recently graduated from an MA in Fashion Communication at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design. Prior to this I studied a BA in Graphic design from the same university. From this, I have an extremely solid understanding of both Adobe Photoshop and Adobe InDesign, which has provided me with an exceptional set of skills such as photo manipulation, editing and retouching, logo design, magazine and poster layouts, along with many more. I now work as a freelance retoucher, art director, and stylist. I am able to teach a wide range of levels, from those with no experience in Adobe software, to A-level students, or for those who are just looking to further their knowledge. I am also available to help those who need to prepare a portfolio of work, should they wish to apply for a Art Foundation or a BA in a creative field at University.

Training Experience:

I've been using Photoshop since the age of 10, and so I am entirely self taught. When I started my BA in Graphic Design I was the top of the class in Photoshop, and was taught everything there is to know about InDesign too. I've been asked by the Head of Art & Design at Chigwell School to come back several times and hold some workshops in Photography, Photoshop and Indesign for the pupils. I was teaching 30 pupils at a time, whilst making sure that each of their needs were fulfilled. I have also individually tutored several people from my local area, in particular those who are looking to choose Art & Design as a GCSE or A-level option, and those who wish to study a degree in the Arts at University. I am very knowledgable on both Adobe programs and am confident that I can help anyone learn whatever they wish to know.

Training Approach:

My approach to teaching is very hands on. I bring my own laptop to all my sessions, complete with the relevant software. I usually set the students mini tasks to complete during the session, unless they are working on something in particular that they need help with. Once the session is over, I offer an optional additional task to complete to the best of their ability before the next session, which I will then review and go through at our next meeting. I'm very patient and understanding if the student needs more time to learn a particular skill, and will often write down a step-by-step approach for them to keep, should they need more guidance in a specific area.
