Personal Description:

I have a 1st BA (hons) from Chelsea College of Art and Design and a PGCE from Goldsmiths. I have been a qualified teacher for over 5 years. I am an artist and designer as well as a teacher. I have my own private practice running a small design company and have very good industry contacts. I have painted giant murals all over the world and worked on published computer games. I have taught from nursery through to GCSE, A level and undergraduate level. My Main subjects are Design and Technology, Art & Design, Citizenship and portfolio preparation for Art School. In my last school I took the grades from 53% A-C to 76% A-C. I am passionate about making learning fun and enjoyable but at the same time achieving great results. I have traveled all over the world and lived in Perth, Australia for 2 years. I am happily married with 2 young boys and live in North London.

Tutoring Experience:

I taught Art & Design in Harrow for 3 years from Yr 7s to Yr 13 and my students received 100% for their BTEC and 88% A-C at GCSE. I have also been an Associate Lecturer at Chelsea College of Arts on the MA course and at London College of Communication on the BA Design Cultures course. I spent 5 years as a D&T teacher in Bushey at a good secondary state school. I have taught Product Design, Sustainable design, Innovation challenge, computer graphics, 3D modelling, Art and Design and Citizenship. I did 6 months as a supply teacher in Brent, Barnet, and Camden across every school age group: nursery, reception, and year 1-13 to get a greater overview of other schools. I did my teacher training in East London in 2006, I taught design Undergraduates in Singapore and taught Adults to paint and draw at the Esalen Institute in California. I have also been a visiting artist/designer at an EBD school in Southampton.

Tutoring Approach:

I am passionate about making learning fun and enjoyable but at the same time achieving great results. Students need to see the benefit of learning new things or developing skills. I reflect how the learning’s will be useful in a real world situation. I work with each individual student’s strengths and coach them to work through their areas of weakness with individual tailored strategies. I explore the pupil’s best learning framework: kinaesthetic, auditory or visual. My approach is to be a vehicle in enabling students to see learning as an exciting exploration of the world.
