I am an experienced and enthusiastic teacher having trained in the creative arts at London’s Central St Martins and The Beaux Arts in Paris and as a teacher at UCL’s Institute of Education. I believe that the tutelage offered to every new student is as unique as a fingerprint and I work hard with my students to help them achieve their goals. As a qualified teacher for the past 6 years and acting head of department for the past 2 years I have been helping students between KS2 and post 18 to achieve success in their GCSE, A-level, BTEC and HND qualifications in Art, Textiles and functional skills maths and English. Having done this and facilitated a large number of successful university applications to prestigious UK and international arts universities for several years in London and internationally I am looking forward to supporting other students to do the same. I have worked extensively with students of all abilities, supporting the achievement of gifted and talented students and those with learning and physical impairments to achieve their greatest success. As a class teacher I have always used one-to-one tutorials to support student success tutoring both inside and privately outside school. I feel that the Arts are uniquely positioned to be personalised and I believe that the best way of enabling student success is to engage them in a personal enjoyment of the subject by providing an bespoke programme. I look forward to offering further opportunities to engage students in the arts in the near future.

Currently, I am a Ph.D student in creative writing living in Manchester but I am available for Zoom lessons only. I am a published writer/poet and also run a successful small publishing press, focusing on writing in the experimental calibre. My experience tutoring began working with a fifteen year old girl a 4 years ago who was struggling with social anxiety and panic disorder. She was unable to go to school and I stepped in to help her pass her GCSEs. The whole experience shaped how I could help influence the student in an engaging and sensitive way, and inspire them to enjoy developing their knowledge. Also, as an experienced editor, it is in my nature to help the individual try and find their best way to express themselves in both an academic and creatively. I specialise in the following: ENGLISH LITERATURE: - Poetry - Shakespeare - The novel - Fiction and Drama - Literal and inferential comprehension - Critical reading - Evaluation of a writer’s choice of vocabulary, grammatical and structures features. - Comparing and contrasting texts - Revision/exam preparation and coursework/dissertation help ENGLISH LANGUAGE: - Critical reading and comprehension - Summary and synthesis - Evaluation of a writer’s choice of vocabulary, form, grammatical and structural features. - Comparing and Contrasting texts - Producing clear and coherent text - Writing for impact and purpose (selecting, organising and emphasising facts, ideas and key points; citing evidence and quotation effectively and pertinently to support views; creating emotional impact; using language creatively, imaginatively and persuasively, including rhetorical devices. - Creative Writing (in the form of "workshopping" and experimentation fo devices and ideas.) (If necessary, I have the experience to help students who suffer from anxiety disorder and issues surrounding self-confidence. Providing a tutoring experience that is aligned with the students personal needs and motivations) Please feel free to message me if you have any queries.

I have been working with young people for over 4 years now and have gained a well rounded portfolio of experience. I have been grateful to receive wonderful feedback from students, parents and colleagues! I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Bristol with a BSc in psychology & philosophy. I worked at a TEFL Language school where I designed a cultural programme for students and was the chief point of contact as a mentor. Additionally, I worked in the SEN department at a London secondary school supporting students with all Key Stages including A Level & IB. I have worked with students who have aspergers, autism, ADHD, dyslexia, anxiety, sight-impairment and physical disability’s. A few examples of previous tutoring jobs: - Mentored a teenager over an 8 month period. - Tutored full time for the past 3 years as a subject generalist with an emphasis on the arts and humanities subjects. I have taught the core KS1, KS2, KS3, KS4 and KS5 syllabuses. Covering all subjects such as art, philosophy, psychology, history, english literature & language, maths, chemistry, biology, physics. I have also done A level and IB tuition for subjects such as history, philosophy, english, art and psychology. - I have worked full time as a home school tutor teaching the core subjects, arts & humanities for ages 5, 7, 9, 11 & 14. - I homeschooled two brothers from a high profile family and prepared them for the English curriculum (from the American system). I taught english literature & language , R.E, art, politics and current affairs, textiles and took them on educational excursions. They also had to pass school entrance exams 11+, 13+, both successfully. - I homeschooled two sisters ages 7 & 9 and taught all the core subjects as well the arts and humanities. I prepared the youngest for her 7 + exams which she successfully passed. My students have gone on to excel in many subjects but especially creative writing and critical thinking. One student of mine was refusing to write at his previous school but after a year of working together he gained entrance to a top London school and is now currently the top of his class for English and is particularly confident with his creative writing. Another student of mine has gone on to win poetry competitions. My teaching style is engaging, innovative and supportive. I try to instill confidence and academic curiosity in my students, as I believe this is equally important to achieving top marks. * Fun fact about me: I paint professionally and pursue writing when I’m not tutoring. I am now keen to take on more students and would love the opportunity to work with you! Once we have been in touch and established something my response time will be very rapid. However because I am very busy it might initially take a little longer to respond so I'm sorry for that! Should be worth the wait though.

I am a passionate and driven designer who has worked their way up through garment and print design to lead teams of designers and drive brands forward. I do a lot of recruitment so see hundreds of portfolios each year, giving me a clear understanding of what universities and employers are looking to see, how artists and designers can best sell themselves, be commercial but remain individual and stand out in a competitive environment. I am a volunteer with FAD (charity no 1112095) as part of their INTOFashion scheme, mentoring graduates as they start applying for jobs, as well as running portfolio masterclasses for groups of 15-20 fashion and textile graduates struggling to get their foot in the industry door.

I have a knowledge of examining bodies such as AQA, OCR, Edexcel, WJEC, Salters & CCEA, the American system and International Baccalaureate however can work towards other examining bodies by request. I work with individuals to identify why they may have problems and make a plan to ensure that they do their best during their exams. I help adolescents choose a career path for themselves and help them choose their GCSEs, A-Levels & University degrees all the while preparing them for entry exams for high-performing schools. I work with nursery, primary, middle school, high school and University students to give them a good basis upon which to continue their education. My teaching style is to educate from the very beginning hence I am able to fully home-school individuals. During my University degree I specialised in Learning, Memory & Teaching through a B.Sc. in Neuroscience at Manchester University with specific interests in Developmental Neuroscience and how the brain evolves from younger years to later life. I am proficient in using e-learning methodologies and IT in my teaching and for my final year university research I created an e-learning computer program to help students learn difficult concepts in their studies using fundamental Neuroscience concepts on Learning. This was a huge success and I was awarded a First for my Teaching & Learning research work and have been selected for 2 Neuroscience PhDs since! I also achieved a First in my Learning & Memory Penultimate Year University Thesis and achieved the second highest grade in the year (86%). I was selected to lecture Neuroscience within the Faculty of Medicine at University of Central Lancashire. I have been selected to provide educational consulting services for agencies for students who need help achieving their goals but have no idea how to achieve them. I have also been selected to run ‘crash’ revision courses by tutoring agencies and delivered lessons within a classroom environment. I am a professional Governess and Tutor having worked for Royal Families, Forbes List and many others. I have served a dual purpose of working as a PA for the families I have worked with on a residential basis and during other employment. I can work on a long term residential basis or by a lesson-by-lesson basis. I enjoy working with families and enjoy family dynamics and working with other tutors/household members. I also have experience of organising the schedules of several tutors, multiple children, household members, children’s activities and chefs to attain the best possible study results for the children. I also arrange suitable nutrition for children so they are able to learn and retain information. In addition, I have tutored abroad and love to travel. For Science subjects I focus a great deal on recall and exam technique, linking topics with other subjects, ensuring the student most importantly remembers the information during the time constraints of an exam. For Maths I give the student tricks and shortcuts. I make the student repeat these shortcuts many times until the problem solving technique is second-nature so that the student can implement these fast. For Art subjects I ensure that the student has used a wide-range of media and backed-up their choices with written explanations. I spend time organising portfolios so that they are at a standard for entry into schools such as St. Martins / Parsons. I ensure the student creates a specialist sketch book with work that gives them more marks. I ensure special projects have enough pieces and depth for a substantial A grade. I work on GCSE, A-level & degree exhibition layout ensuring work is presented and mounted in a cohesive manner, demonstrating examples of A* grades and ensure the students' work is at the same level. I also have significant English Language training and have taught English and grammar in a professional setting. All in all, I hope to provide children and adolescents with a wholesome education to supply them with the skills to excel in their lives.

I am a fully qualified teacher with QTS certification. I have teaching experience both in the UK and abroad. I have taught at all levels including students from 5 years-old, through to A-Level students and adult learners. I can provide you with English studies in reading and writing and comprehension. The main subjects I teach are: English Language and Literature, Business Studies, History and Geography, Italian and French, Fine Arts and Design Technology Graphic Arts (i.e: Photoshop), Art History, Film Studies and Citizenship up to A-level. I have successfully aided students in portfolio development and the interview process for admission into many art and design based programs including schools in the U.S.A and Canada such as Ryerson, York University, Claude Watson Arts, San Francisco Art Institute, NYU. I am also a professional artist who has lived and exhibited internationally in North America, Europe and Asia. I am a committed tutor and have consistently produced excellent results. I believe that effective teaching must focus on the student’s needs and must be engaging and fun. I always strive to bring the best out in my students. Tutoring means that I get to put all my efforts into individuals who really want to learn, be challenged and motivated. I’m good at finding new ways to explain areas of studies and incorporate listening, patience, personalised interests and understanding of specific needs in order to create an ongoing pedagogical dialogue of critical thinking and new notions to consider, grasp and understand while having an engaging experience that produces great results.

Having been teaching for the last twelve years, I have amassed considerable experience on how to engage students who are not reaching their potential. I have a background in the film industry and am currently one of the UK’s top Scenic Artists, having worked on such projects as 'Harry Potter', 'Star Wars', 'War Horse', and, 'Paddington', to name but a few. I recently completed my Masters degree at the University of the Arts London, where I achieved a Distinction. The course facilitated deeper understanding and development, and I was able to progress my work and project it into the public sphere. I am also a keen writer and have my work in The National Poetry Library collection. I often include a written piece alongside my own art and believe that its inclusion facilitates a deeper understanding of the subject matter and makes the project richer for it. Over the last twelve years, I have been involved in community projects and teaching programmes, which help people of all ages and abilities to get involved in painting. This varies from teaching students brush techniques and colour mixing, to discussion about the thematic topics which they will encounter in their GCSE and A-Level syllabuses. I have also run workshops in schools, which encourage students to engage with their surroundings and produce work in response to what they are experiencing. I have worked with mature students, using contemporary artists alongside the Old Masters to help contextualise and frame their work. This is a skill that is essential at A-Level, as it aids students who wish to deepen their work and search for inspiration. I have also taught students and adult learners with Special Educational Needs, including autism. I am extremely passionate about painting and all forms of art making, favouring a learning through practice approach. I aim to instil in students the confidence to explore their creativity whilst reaching their potential in the classroom, and preparing them for exams. I believe that my passion for art, alongside my experience in the film industry and teaching, enables me to deliver this effectively.

On leaving The London College of Fashion with a BA in Design I joined a studio as a designer of casual womenswear for many popular high street names. My interest in Art and historical costume led me to join the production and later the running wardrobe of The English National Opera. It is with the birth of my first child that I went into teaching, at first teaching clothesmaking, beading and textile crafts to adults. Part time study culminated with my qualifying to teach post 16 students in Further Education. I have since taught design, manufacture and textiles at several London based FE colleges. After Post Graduate study of Art History I also taught History of Art. I have an extensive knowledge and experience of teaching Art and Design at the equivalent of GCSE and A level at BTEC levels 2 and 3. For the last three years I have worked as Assessor and Moderator of A' Level Art and Design and BTEC Level 3 qualifications. I believe strongly in creating the best possible environment for the student to experiment and develop their skills. 'Play' is very important to me, giving oneself the opportunity to experiment and develop, going off at tangents and exploring the elements without parameters. I encourage and challenge my students to work and explore the potential of a wide range of materials, techniques and processes using and combining a variety of mixed media. I continue to develop my skills through practise of my skills and visits and awareness of developments in my fields.

I graduated with a first in a Masters of Arts and Humanity from a reputable university in Paris. This is something I try to utilise in my lesson plans as I believe in the educational power of creativity - especially as a method of language learning. I have a broad knowledge of art, both theoretical and practical. I'm currently working in a mainstream primary school on a one-to-one basis with a SEN student. Along with this I'm also teaching French to students in several FLAM schools across London. I now wish to enrich my teaching competence by becoming a private tutor. As a French native who speaks English fluently - after living and working 6 years in London - I have experience with all aspects of the languages, both as a learner and a speaker. My preferred style of lesson is conversational but I enjoy constructing lessons to suit the individual needs of each students and pique their particular interests. I believe I can empathise with students and nourish them due to my positive, warm and caring personality along with my strong creative sense and my academic background. I'm an eager reader and writer and am always looking to deepen my knowledge about a myriad of topics.
