I love teaching freelance as I work with students who are as excited about art as me! My approach is for students to "face their fears" work on there 'weaker' points in drawing,they build confidence in their skills&broadens art knowledge.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach Fine Art within the framework of GCSE, A-level, Degree or hobby for any age.
I tailor tuition to the student's personal areas of interest whether a beginner learning the basics of drawing, and/or an individual who want's to focusing on developing a personal visual language.
Drawing - contour, shape, colour/tone, texture, structure and the relationships between form and space .
Sketchbook development - record from direct observation and personal experience, experimentation, and the use of intuition and imagination, communicate by using appropriate materials and techniques in a disciplined way, encourage visual thinking, research skills and storytelling ability through sketchbook practice.
Coaching on Cultural studies, applications forms and personal statements. As well as presentation advice such as mounting, framing for end of year shows.

Amy has been a very reliable tutor with lots of energy and patience. My brother's Art GCSE grade went up within a few weeks of the sessions and his confidence continues to grow. Amy has a great combination of Art knowledge and skills as well as a knack for instilling confidence in students which is a rare quality to find.
Amy provided summer holiday art lessons for an enthusiastic 12 year old. We found Amy to be a talented and understanding tutor that produced fantastic results. I would have no hesitation in recommending Amy as an art tutor.
