Bartlett Graduate with 3 years tutoring experience giving architecture tutoring in London

Methodology

*** CURRENTLY DOING MY PART 3 THEREFORE I HAVE VERY LIMITED AVAILABILITY FOR MENTORING. DO GET IN TOUCH AND I WILL DO MY BEST TO HELP YOU IF I CAN ***

My mission is simple - to help you identify your strengths and areas of improvement so you can tap into your full potential and start producing your best work.

With me, you'll learn how to work SMART, not HARD.

Let's work together and get you the inspiration, tools and confidence you need to not only survive the architecture school, but thrive in it. I will encourage you, provoke your thinking patterns and show you how to realise your ideas in an efficient and productive manner.

I am an advocate of efficiency and smart productivity, as this was tested first-hand by myself during my academic years and it proved successful. As such, I do not endorse the stereotypical culture of all-nighters, 24/7 working and zero time for well-being.

I managed to graduate from the Bartlett with a distinction, whilst having a job, exercising 3 times a week, cooking meals at home, sleeping 8h every night and having time for a night out every now and then. You can do this too - I'll show you how.

My method is transparent, open and flexible - I do not believe in the One-Size-Fits-All approach and I strive to provide each student with personalised advice, tips and suggestions, adjusted to individual strengths, personality profile and career objectives.

How does a lesson with me work?

1 We start with WHY

I help you understand your objectives, your vision, and your concept ideas.

​2 We figure out HOW

​I show you the tools - software and other techniques - to bring your ideas to life.

​3 We establish WHEN

I give you tips on how to achieve your goals efficiently and within specific timeframes.


WHY ME?

WELL_ROUNDED | I take a holistic approach to education and equip you not only with knowledge and tools but also with confidence and the right mindset.

PURPOSE_LED | I find meaning in empowering you to overcome your fears, achieve your academic and professional objectives and inspire others to do so.

I GET IT | I experienced the challenges of studying architecture myself. I am driven to put an end to the all-nighter culture and inspire a smarter, more balanced work ethic, with better results.

WELL-CONNECTED | I connect you to my industry links, so you can engage with people you resonate with and do work that matters to you.

SOCIALLY PRESENT | I harness the potential of social networks to spread my experience as a tutor, exchange ideas and ignite change through connecting with like-minded people.

Sabina's CV

ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN TUTORING

WHAT I AM ABOUT

Change happens in small daily shifts of attitude, behaviour, mentality. As a tutor, I help you nurture healthy habits, encouraging great ideas, and non-conformist thinking patterns. Studying architecture and design is more than a degree - it's an attitude, a lifestyle and an exercise of mental flexibility, stamina, and resilience.

Vivianne

Perfect! Extremely helpful and glad to say i got a 2.1 thanks to her .

Sabina's response

Vivianne reached out for remote support with one of her presentations for university. The students required help with clarifying her objective and her language tone. I was happy to provide this assistance and I felt like our collaboration was beneficial to her growth. I hope Vivianne will take the lessons forward into her academic journey and achieve the results she desires.

Domhnall

Perfect! Sabina is an extremely helpful tutor. Between a depth of technical/referential knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject, she has proved extremely helpful when it comes to developing a complex thesis and drawings to support it. I look forward to continuing to work with her.

Sabina's response

The class with Domhnall was very enjoyable and productive. I was impressed by the level of research he conducted beforehand and the ideas he had for this project were unique and exciting. I am happy with how the lesson took place, communication was great and I hope the feedback and support I provided will help empower Domhnall to produce the quality of work he aspires for.

Matthew

Perfect! I have just started to work with Sabina. I have found her to be a pleasant, intelligent and helpful tutor, who is an enthusiastic advocate for her subject. She has been instrumental in assisting me in the development of my current project. I look forward to continuing to work with her.

Sabina's response

It was great to meet and work with Matthew! He is bright, committed to higher learning and ambitious with his design ideas. I particularly appreciated his in-depth research and his ability to connect concepts and theories in a multi-disciplinary manner. Matthew is also very pleasant in person, he arrived on time for our session and was flexible to arrange the time and location of our meeting in a convenient way for both of us. I am confident that with a little bit of support and that extra boost of confidence, Matthew will develop an ambitious, thorough and inspiring project ahead! Keep up the good work and a forward-looking mindset! :)

Sabina is the first tutor that has ever inspired me to chase after my dream which seemed too ambitious at the time. I met Sabina when I was trying to push myself back into the field of architecture. We worked through my portfolio together and we were able to derive my best ideas through her support and encouragement. In a very short period I managed to find my true passion within the field of architecture which led to an incredible working experience abroad and shortly after me completing my masters. Her faith in me inspired the confidence I needed to have faith in myself. She is proficient in her software skills, teaching me architecture essentials such as Revit and Illustrator, but most importantly she was able to teach me how to conceptualise like an architect, which is something I always struggled with. She is a brilliant minded, creative, intelligent and empathetic individual with a unique approach to teaching architecture. Her ability to successfully address the needs of each individual is profoundly evident in the number of students that have succeeded because of her. I cannot thank her enough for all her support and time and I will always consider her the best tutor I have ever had.

Sabina was my sister's tutor. I strongly recommend her because she really brings her amazing personality into the session.
I saw my sister having exponential progress due to Sabina's dual approach to teaching. She really knows how to combine the ability to relate to others with her excellent technical skills, a balance of high competence and passion.
I was amazed at how she influenced Anisia to acquire a sense of responsibility for her learning and support her internal motivation and also a focus on the process itself, not only the results. Anisia really had fun through the sessions and developed a deeper interest in architecture.
With her genuine witty personality and her wide-ranging curiosity about the world, Sabina helped Anisia to achieve a new way of seeing architecture: as a way of living rather than a future job prospect.
One of the lasting gifts that Anisia received from Sabina was the gift of a growth mindset and I believe it to be essential for all areas of life.
Anisia was lucky to meet the right person at the right time and I really think that Sabina played a huge role in Anisia's recent brilliant academic achievements but also in her inner strength and resilience.
EXCELLENT TUTOR !!
