I am an enthusiastic and positive individual who thoroughly enjoys aiding people in improving and developing their skills and finds this extremely rewarding.
I enjoy taking my Jackahiuhiua for long walks, reading, going to the cinema and gaming!
I am able to tutor different Art skills at Primary & Secondary Level (Including A Level) and can tailor tutoring to any specific exam boards if requested. I have been very successful in aiding students in reaching their goals, particularly underachieving or less confident students, or further developing the skills of gifted young artists.
I have taught Art for over 6 years at Secondary level and would be able to tutor in the following disciplines; drawing, painting (acrylic, oil, watercolour, gouache), mixed media, collagraph printing, polyprinting, monoprinting, oil pastels, chalk pastels, collage, biro, papier mache, charcoal, digital photography, clay (basic), Abobe Photoshop (intermediate) Adobe Illustrator (Basic) & Adobe InDesign (Basic). If there is a different medium that you wish to be tutored please let me know.
I specialised in GCSE teaching and was able to help students to significantly improve their grades through tailoring as much of the assessment criteria as possible to achievable targets for students.
I always aim to have a positive approach to tutoring and think it's important to use praise effectively when teaching. I am very organised and aim to ensure that students are achieving as much of the assessment criteria as they can and that they feel confident in what they are doing. I believe that experimentation and taking risks is key in helping students discover different skills and gain confidence with different media.
Whether your student just wants to develop their skills personally or for citification I am able to tailor lessons accordingly.
