I am a bright, patient, and reliable individual with 2 years of experience in arts and crafts tutoring and workshops. I have recently graduated with a BA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins, and I hold a keen interest in styles of learning and teaching which are suited to individual students. I use my in-depth knowledge of Fine Art concepts and skills to help students expand their creative horizons and push them creatively while building a natural enjoyment of the arts.
I build upon my experience as an artist, a teacher and an ongoing learner to use play and experimentation to help students develop a working practice they can develop beyond our sessions. I find it important to get to know each student well in our initial sessions, to then create individual projects which both build on students` interests and expand their confidence in areas they might not be so familiar with. As a working artist, I see no hierarchy between the student and the teacher when learning art, but create an atmosphere where we can both learn together and make art that helps us understand the world around us.
I have a full DBS/ CRB check, and am happy to supply references as well as preliminary interviews with tutees/ parents.

Experience: Through this website, I have held multiple teaching roles with children aged 7-15 in arts and crafts. This has included home-schooled children, for whom I have developed a creative curriculum based on their individual creative interests, and children in mainstream education, where I expand on projects they have learnt in class as well as developing beyond this to encompass skills they may not have encountered.
I have also led Arts and Crafts workshops for the company `Arty Party`, where I have learnt useful approaches to skills development and projects which are useful for particular age ranges.
