« 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. »

Experienced Architecture Mentor with connections in Recruitment offering Professional Mentoring in London

Methodology

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

We establish your objectives, your vision about your professional life and your motivation.

​2 We figure out HOW

We establish a strategy and a plan of action that is appropriate for your desired outcome.

​3 We establish WHEN

We give ourselves specific time frames to make sure we progress and reach the finish line.


WHY ME?

WELL_ROUNDED | I take a holistic approach to mentoring 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, through leading by example.

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 mentor, exchange ideas and ignite change through connecting with like-minded people.

Background

I graduated in 2017 from MArch Architecture @ The Bartlett, UCL, gaining RIBA Part II with Distinction.

You can watch my project & film here: (concealed information)

In 2014, I obtained my BA(Hons)Architecture @ University of Portsmouth, gaining RIBA Part I with Distinction.

I was awarded the RIBA South-East Student Prize and the Martin Harvey Design Prize in 2014.

After graduating, I embarked on an exploratory journey, probing a wide range of design industries, from corporate to start-up ventures, spanning architecture, urbanism, interiors and product/graphic.

Most recently, I have also collaborated with a recruitment agency - architecture and design focused - and gained invaluable insight into the industry and the specific requirements of design studios.

As a recruitment consultant, I connected with people who were looking for their next professional challenge, but also with those who seek a career transition. Change is never easy, but with the right support and guidance, it may just be the bravest thing you've ever done!

I take part in events, talks and workshops aimed at inspiring positive change in society, at work and in our everyday lives. I am passionate about the role of the architect in society and I advocate for freedom of expression, individuality and non-conformism.

My passion for knowledge, learning and understanding the human mind comes across in everything I do, and most recently I’ve also started writing a blog to share my experience as a mentor, the ideas I come across and the great people I encounter every day.

My journey as a private mentor began in 2016 when I was still a student myself, at the Bartlett - UCL.

I have been giving lessons for 3 years for students of Architecture, Interior Design, Urban Design, Spatial Design, from schools in the UK and abroad, at Undergraduate, Postgraduate and PhD level. I have also provided support with University Admissions and Professional Development.

My previous and current students study at:
Architectural Association [3], Central Saint Martins [3], Royal College of Art [1], The Bartlett at UCL [2], University of Westminster [2], Christie's Education [1], ​The New School Parsons [1], Oxford Brookes University [2], London Metropolitan [2], ​The University of Buckingham [1], University of Portsmouth [2], London South-Bank University [2], University of Brighton [2], Bournemouth University [1], ​Regent's University [2], ​Inchbald [2], KLC School of Design [2].

I have also mentored professionals from design and architecture firms: Visu Verum, Sarah Lowe Interiors.

I have been tutoring for over 3 years and empowered 33 students and professionals so far.

Sabina's CV

PROFESSIONAL MENTORING

WHAT I AM ABOUT

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

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.

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 !!
