It depends very much on what my students want to achieve. If it's booster classes to enhance skills to run alongside GCSE's/college/university then we focus on the areas you need help with and set up a program to suit you. I can take someone with very basic art skills and improve them greatly, I have a system that really works. If you wanting to take it further and build a portfolio to apply to university I have had much success with students but if you just want to improve you skills as an artist of hobbyist I~ can certainly help you.

Perfect! Debra has tutored my 13-year old daughter for over a year and I highly recommend her. She always comes to lessons prepared with a plan for the session and has not only taught my daughter a variety of techniques but has also helped her to start to develop her own personal style. She has a lovely personality and my daughter, who can be a bit shy, gets along wonderfully with her as Debra does not "baby" her but discusses how she can improve her work and where her strengths are in a mature way.
Debra also helped my daughter build a strong portfolio, which helped her get an art scholarship at school.
You can really tell that Debra loves what she does and does it with kindness and passion. :)
Great first session with Miai
Excellent! I really like how Debra is teaching me the basics of drawing and how to build my confidence too. She is clear and helpful. I suggest her as a tutor.
Veronica is a fantastic student and is gaining a lot from our sessions and her work is improving really well. We continue to build her portfolio and assist her in expanding her skills and is a pleasure to watch her grow
