I am a current Central Saint Martins Fashion Student offering intensive courses, portfolio diagnosis, application assistance and advice.

Methodology

I have a honest and strong opinion that is invaluable to a person who wishes to gain entrance to a fashion course or further develop their practice in design. As a current fashion student at Central Saint Martins, I can share with you the most up-to-date and relevent fashion tutoring. I believe in giving structured courses that diagnose and address potential weaknesses and strengths both in portfolio and process. I am encouraging and honest. I assist those who wish to work in a fast pace and generate lots of ideas and designs quickly. I am extremely patient with those who may have difficulty expressing themselves in english. I can answer any questions that a student might have about attending Central Saint Martins. Upon initial contact with me, I offer a free of charge video chat consultation in order to understand what your needs are, and whether I can assist you. If that is the case, I will suggest the most effective plan of action.

Experience

I am a current BA fashion student at Central Saint Martins. I had a previous career in sales before gaining entrance to Saint Martins to study Womenswear. I have been giving lessons for 6 months as a tutor. I enjoy the process of design, textile development, research as well as art making. In my free time I produce music for film and collaborate.

Perfect! he really helped me to push myself further into unknown territory. He gave me the push I needed to get my protfolio up to CSM standards.

i've been a student of dave since before he started tutoring on superprof- he is a good mentor, knows when to be serious and when to be flexible; I can say he equipped me with a lot of the creative tools I hadn't learned. I think he is highly selective with the people he chooses to take on so really put in all you've got if you got it

M
Marcus

wow, intense person, great artist- I wouldn't go to anyone else- this having been my fourth experience with a private tutor, all the others were more or less wasted money.

David: Im so sorry to FLATTER you David but you are, (truly,) a blessing in disguise.

David has been my tutor for over 3 months. I am truly grateful for him because paying for a lesson with him goes much further than an hour. He works behind the scenes between each lesson to improve the way he teaches. I have improved my experimentation, drawing, and portfolio immensly. Thanks David again.

I worked with Dave for 5 years and he was the damn hardest working guy I know.
