« Thank you, Sonny, for helping teach our son different aspects of painting and drawing for the last 4 years in which time Jay's work has developed and broadened enormously. He was able to include a couple of pieces he painted with you as part of his portfolio for a successful Art Scholarship to Charterhouse School and we are in no doubt of the valuable contribution you made in helping him obtain that award. »

Art Lessons with an Art Tutor, East Grinstead, Sussex

Methodology

I take pleasure in helping both children and adults to develop their artwork and have a proven record of achieving outstanding results with my students, helping both GCSE and A Level students achieve A* grades.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach oil painting, acrylic painting, pencil drawing and charcoal drawing across a wide range of subjects. This can be within the framework of Key Stage 2 (primary), Key Stage 3 (lower secondary), GCSE coursework, A level coursework, Degree or Adult Education / Hobby. I am also able to give help with project work, portfolio building, developing ideas, essay writing, research and art history.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a First Class Honours Degree in Fine Art.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £35 per hour for adult learners, A-Level & Degree levels. For KS3 (lower secondary) & GCSE I charge £30 per hour. For KS2 (primary) I charge £25 per hour. I also give discounts for hours paid in advance (please visit website for full details). All lessons via Skype are £25 per hour. Lessons can be paid for by cash, cheque or credit / debit card (via online shop).

For tuition in London areas I charge £40 per hour, inclusive of travel expenses (this fee applies to all ages and levels).

- Where do you teach?

I can teach at my home studio in East Grinstead. I welcome students from all areas. I also offer home tuition within East Grinstead, Dormans, Lingfield, Hirst Green, Oxted, Croydon, Haywards Heath, Tunbridge Wells and any district of London accessible by underground. I can also tutor via Skype (I offer a free half hour consultation via Skype to begin with).

- When are you available?

I am available weekdays, evenings and weekends, depending upon current bookings.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I cater for KS2 (primary), KS3 (lower secondary), GCSE, A-level and Degree as well as Adult Education / Hobby at all levels from absolute beginner to advanced. If tutoring students younger than 16 from my home studio space I require that the parent / guardian stay throughout the lesson per advice / guidelines provided by The Tutor Pages.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE, A Level and Degree Art

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I am able to provide tutorials via email for oil / acrylic painting and pencil / charcoal drawing

- Do you have a personal message for students?

One-to-one tuition is a very effective way to develop your artistic skills. Whether it be a personal hobby or for an art qualification such as GCSE, A-level or Degree, learn step by step and take your art work to an entirely new level.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been tutoring on a one-to-one basis since 2005, teaching a wide range of people of various backgrounds, interests and levels. I also run a painting course for experienced painters at my local college and also have experience in running a life drawing course. I also have additional experience as a trained and practicing phonics tutor for both children and adults.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

My last CRB check was carried out in 2005, but I have been in continuous employment within a school and then a tutoring centre since that time.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I completed my degree at the University of Sunderland.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am registered with IfL (Institute for Learning).

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My students currently range in age from 7 to 50+.

...I can't quite still believe it in my own mind, but I got an A* overall. It's incredible how much my skill improved since AS and I really feel I took a huge leap between the two years. I have you to thank for that along with the support from my parents, that I really appreciate all the help and support that you gave me. I wouldn't have been able to make it into such a good university without your help!
