Information about Charlotte
I am a BA Hons graduate in Contemporary Applied Art, and have since been working in the Private sector teaching Art at Senior school level, including A-Levels and GCSEs.
I have extensive experience in:
Preparing detailed sketchbooks & Portfolios.
Helping students understand a range of Art processes, Computer software such as Illustrator and Photoshop,
Life drawing, ceramics, A Level- endorsed textiles, fine Art, drawing, painting, sculpture,mixed media.
Basically if you need assistance in an area of Art I can help. I have 14 years of teaching experience and I produce very successful students.
I am very friendly and easy to interact with but similarly I do expect high standards and I will help you achieve these.
I cover Welwyn Garden City, Hertford, Bishops Stortford, Hitchin, Much Hadham and Sawbridgeworth.
Please email me any queries.
Availability: Weekday evenings & Sundays, but call/email for exact times and days as occasionally I have parents evenings etc to attend in my professional capacity as Head of Art at a leading independent school (recent Art A-level results include (A/A*) 58% above the national average).
Most tutoring sessions are preferably carried out at my home due to the ease of access to art materials, equipment and internet access, however it is possible for me to attend a tutees home if required but this could entail an additional travel fee dependent on distance.
I am able to attend areas around North East Hertfordshire and West Essex, including but not limited to Bishops Stortford, Harlow, Epping, St Albans, Hatfield & Hitchin.
Willing to travel: 15 miles
Experience: First class BA Hons Contemporary Applied Art,
14 years teaching Experience,

Ceramic artist in own right. Exhibited in a large number of group exhibitions.
Since the beginning of my teaching career I have helped to build up a highly successful department and boast some of the best results for Art in the country.
In recent years my students have celebrated much success. Since 2013 my students have achieved 42% Level 9 at GCSE with 100% of the cohort (45+ students each year) achieving 9-5. Additionally in the same teaching years my A LEVEL students have achieved 81% A*-A. This average mark includes the summer of 2018 which takes into account the new reformed A level course. These results are significantly above the national average.
My GCSE Students in the summer of 2019 achieved 81% 9-7
Students who I have taught have been shortlisted as one of the 20 finalists in national competitions such as the Saatchi student prize (2013) and The National Textile Competition (2015), National Film awards (2015) and The Royal Academy online/onsite A`level & Young Student prize (2016 + 2019).

Fantastic teacher, really fun and patient. Knows what she is doing and able to convey what is required to the student. As well as being a good teacher is an extremely delightful person to deal with. A real gem!
Charlotte has been fundamental in improving my drawing ability and my confidence. Each lesson is enjoyable and well planned and I would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of an art tutor.
I would strongly recommend Charlotte to anyone considering online art support. Charlotte`s knowledge of A level art requirements, and her ability to convey that knowledge via exceptionally informative powerpoints, is outstanding. Charlotte is incredibly flexible and approachable. Her response to queries has always been extremely prompt.
A brilliant tutor. Very knowledgeable. And encouraging. She has inspired me to work hard, and given me focus. Helping me work towards my career in art.
I paid for my son Chris to have 3 Art sessions with Charlotte as a christmas present. He is a product designer who did not study art at senior school. Charlotte quickly establishes your strengths and weaknesses and plans the sessions accordingly. Chris`s confidence has grown tremendously and he has benefited from Charlottes expertise and guidance. Chris has decided to continue with the sessions independently.
I have been having tutorials with Charlotte in order to learn Adobe photo shop and she has been great. Polite, punctual and with great attention to detail. I would recommend her. Excellent!
