Cambridge Tutor

I am a professional and dedicated practising Artist and I am a Circuit Studio artist at Wysing Arts Centre. After graduating I worked as a Painting Assistant for Damien Hirst. I specialise in Fine Art and Photography, as well as French. During my degree I participated in Erasmus and did a semester in Brussels, Belgium. I learnt French while living over there.

I am passionate about getting young people interested in the arts.

I have an up to date Enhanced DBS check and hold a certificate in Child Protection Training.

Tutoring Experience

I have worked as an Artist Facilitator for both Kettle's Yard and Wysing Arts Centre, creating arts workshops for all ages in various different settings.

I worked at The Leys School as an Art Technician for two years, giving one-on-one teaching and support to children from 11 to 18yrs in Art. I not only taught painting and drawing techniques but also printmaking techniques such as etching and linocuts. I have extensive experience helping final year students (Upper 6th/Year 13) preparing portfolios for University Applications.

I did work experience with children of 8 and 9yrs as a Classroom Assistant at Western Park Primary School in Bristol and had to teach small groups of children arithmetic. I also taught foreign nursery rhymes to primary school children of all ages at Aston Gate Primary School in Bristol.

Tutoring Approach

My approach is one of patience and encouragement. Individuals all have different needs and I adjust my teaching technique appropriately. I teach practical skills that lead the tutee to carry out their goals.

I can tutor and mentor you in:

Fine Art materials and techniques - oil/acrylic/watercolour/ink/gouache painting, drawing, chalk/oil pastels, mixed media, conceptual art, etching, linocuts, carborumdum printmaking, installations, sculpture.
