Information about Sofia

Adobe Certified Expert & Instructor, BA & MSc, with over 13 years of working experience in Design, Photography and Media, allowing me to maintain a wide variety of skills that assist in supporting students, professionals and enthusiasts involved in the Creative industries.

Since I started teaching in 2013, I have taught other educators, art directors, creative professionals but also students of all ages (5 to 75!) and abilities, including individuals with learning and behavioural difficulties. Moreover, I have delivered bespoke Adobe creative training for clients such as the BBC, SKY, WWF, NHS, ILGA, Roche, The National Gallery and several Universities and Colleges.

Recently achieved an MSc in Design and Digital Media (with distinction) from the University of Edinburgh, where I chose to work with 3D, Motion Graphics, VFX, UI/UX, Video Game Design and AR/VR. I have also achieved a 1:1 (Hons) BA focused on Photography and Audiovisual Arts, where I had the opportunity to experiment with different forms of visual and digital art, whilst specialising in Architecture Advertising Photography and Image Editing. Moreover, I hold a Digital Photography certificate from the University of Harvard.

Since 2015 I`ve continuously been one of the very few Adobe Certified Instructors and Experts. Because of my comprehensive knowledge of the Adobe software and digital media theory, I received a series of certifications from Adobe, such as Educator Specialist in Visual and Video Design, Digital Imaging and Digital Creativity Expert for classrooms, Expert in Digital Media and Creativity Training and Adobe Education Trainer, accrediting me to train other educators.

My latest experience is focused on delivering lessons and lectures in Digital Media and Visual Arts as well as my freelance projects.

Above all, I have successfully employed a motivational approach when teaching and found that this led to many positive student outcomes, such as developing their creative thinking. A key part of my career is helping students reach their full potential, which I work towards by focusing on creative and critical thinking when teaching.

Steve (Mr)

5/5 Rating

Sofia has massively helped with my understanding of the creative cloud suite and has in turn given me a greater knowledge of how to use the software in order that I can progress my course. She is clear, concise and always a great source of information. She is diligent and proactive in her work and presentation of content is clear and easy to understand. She makes a daunting piece of software easier to understand and enjoy.
