« Perfect! Yip is a very knowledgeable tutor. Working with him was the best decision I made while applying for MArch Architectural Design at The Bartlett. He was very helpful, organized and updated with school regulation and applying process. All my questions and concerns were answered. During our classes he always had a schedule for what will be discussed and shortly after class I would receive an email for my to do list before the next class. Working with him made the process easier and more relaxed. Yip looked through my work and with some constructive criticism and a lot of motivation my portfolio looks better than ever. I highly recommend Yip as a tutor. »

Bartlett Architectural Graduate (MArch/RIBA Part II) Portfolio Tutorials for Undergraduate UCAS Applications

Methodology

Having taught at various levels and a range of skills sets (from delivering KS3/4 Workshops through to Pre-Undergraduate Summer Courses), my ambition is to enable young, aspiring designers a critical sounding board for their ideas and to introduce/upskill/improve their methods of representation in order to convey their work effectively for university applications. A key to this is understanding workflows and the ability to work efficiently, alongside documenting the creative process in such a way so that it reads coherently and provokes thought and active discussion.

Throughout the sessions, I will introduce you to key tools and examples of work that could help translate your ideas into readable process(es) and will take precedents from the tertiary design education model of seminars where you will present your work/progress followed by a review where we will discuss ways of developing and improving on the work to reach your goals.

Understanding that every student's needs are different, the first session will be a free consultation to assess your personal application deadlines and will proceed in the form of the following sessional structures:

A/ Portfolio Review
These seminars will reflect the undergraduate/postgraduate design level conversations that are held in architecture school, where you will curate and present your ideas digitally, followed by a review of how the work could be challenged and improved to further enable the clarity and ambitions of the work. Depending on the stage of the student's work, this can be tailored to assisting with the development of a design / university entrance portfolio from Page 0 to feedback-tutorials on improving existing portfolios.

B/ Project Based Review
These seminars are used specifically to develop and strengthen individual projects within portfolios that you may feel need further creative discussion and discourse on. Skills based tutorials can also take place in these seminars to develop a certain piece of work to presentation level.

C/ Personal Statements and Interviews
Finally, expressing your individuality and ambitions within the Personal Statement and Interviews is key to kickstart your journey into architectural education. These seminars will take place usually towards the end of our agreed tuition period so that we can review, discuss and tailor you Personal Statement for university admission alongside tips for helping you communicate your ideas, passion and ambition during an admissions interview.

If you require tutoring at Undergraduate level, please message me over SuperProf so we can discuss what I am able to deliver in terms of skills based workshops, design reviews and theoretical input.
