My teaching offers a friendly and open minded platform for personal development away from the pressures of formal academic programmes. I am happy to help architecture students at undergrad or post grad level with several aspects of their architecture projects. This ranges from specific help with software, presentations or portfolios through to general help with the critical position of a proposal and references to relevant precedents.
I am an architectural designer with 5 years professional experience working for award wining architecture practices in London and Hong Kong. I thoroughly enjoy working with students, and through attentively getting to know their interests and ambitions, take pleasure in helping to build their confidence, develop their skills, and improve their architecture. I have one year of experience working with 3 students at post graduate level, a year working with a student at GCSE level and have worked with several A-level work experience students during my time in practice.

Perfect! While struggling with detail drawings for an architectural project, Ian was able to assess my work, gain a good level of my understanding, and focus the sessions on the required areas for improvement both on a design and technical level.
He was very professional, yet had a friendly and flexible approach which made me feel at ease to ask questions. I would absolutely recommend his tutoring to my fellow students. These sessions have instilled confidence in my ability and now I feel I’m on the right track with my final year university project work.
A big ‘thank you’, Ian!
Perfect! Ian is a professional tutor. The lessons are clear and very productive and he is really nice person
Perfect! Perfect. Very supportive and resourceful tutor. Custom help to complete my essay. Many thanks!
I would highly recommend Ian as a tutor. As someone who overcomplicates and gets easily concerned about work, Ian quickly put my mind at ease with his logical and practical approach to solving the problems I presented him with. He suggested simple ways to track progress to ensure completion of certain projects and being incredibly tech savvy, he knew what to do regarding the best programmes and apps to use to do this - which made a really big difference to me and saved a lot of time . He listened and was really enthusiastic but was also realistic and perceptive to draw out my strengths and weaknesses so we knew what was most important to work on. He encouraged a weekly time to check in creating some accountability. A great tutor all around. Would highly recommend.
