I have been obsessively drawing and painting since I was 7 years old! I studied Art for both GCSE (A*) and A Level (A) then studied BSc Architecture at the University of Reading (2:1).
I have created various commission and freelance artwork for companies and private clients (including illustration/graphic design assets that I designed by hand). I have also had many years of experience volunteering as a teaching assistant in both Art and other subject lessons, and experience with teaching/mentoring students on a 1-to-1 basis at Primary, GCSE and A Level stages.
Perfect! Feedback from 9 y.o. student's mum:
After my daughter suddenly expressed interest in drawing, I started looking for a teacher. We tried few lessons with few tutors and I'm grateful we found Noor!
Noor is a fantastic tutor! My daughter is really enjoying her lessons with Noor. She's looking forward to each lesson and she comes out of every lesson with a great feeling of accomplishment. She feels inspired and is encouraged with her own progress. I like the way Noor is communicating, she's diligent, professional and kind, gets on very well with my daughter. I can see the progress my daughter is making, but more importantly, I can see her becoming more and more interested in drawing. Maybe this will become her passion, who knows ))
Feedback directly from a 9 y.o. student:
Noor is really nice and she always asks me how I would do it instead of making a decision on her own first.
Olya has a very keen eye for detail, and she is a very fast learner. She can sometimes get distracted but she quickly gets back to the task at hand. There could be some room for improvement in terms of her ability to accurately perceive overall proportions of things, as well as working on her confidence so that she doesn't focus too much on how the drawing looks during the process and erasing too much as no drawing looks beautiful at every stage of the process! However, this can take time to improve on and she is already making very fast progress since her first lesson! I'm looking forward to continue helping her develop her skill and technique. Overall, she is a star and should be very proud of herself!
Perfect! Noor was very engaging and personable making me feel comfortable right from the start.
Listening to what I wanted out of my lessons and then helped me work on an existing drawing I am working on.
Noor was clear, professional and instructive in a very gentle, passive and encouraging way. I felt we were working together and totally understood the method, more importantly the reasoning. She has a great way of conveying what she wants. I was sad when the lesson came to an end - I was so inspired
Sharon is wonderful! Super friendly, funny and easy to teach and get along with. She provided a clear, thorough outline of what she wants out of tutoring which made our first lesson a breeze. She is also very talented and independently took the lead on implementing the advice given in the lesson with confidence, whilst also discussing and taking guidance on board throughout. I very much appreciate her flexibility with arranging lessons as well and I really look forward to future lessons together and helping Sharon to reach her artistic goals!
Noor is lovely! She's extremely talented artistically and patiently encouraging as a tutor; she makes me feel at ease and explains the drawing techniques in a clear, concise way. I can see myself improving already after just a few lessons :)
